For the 75th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re asking the question Is the Primary Care Relationship Dead? There are a couple of major trends that are happening in primary care right now. The first trend is investors, private equity, and large companies all investing in primary care. Hundreds of millions of dollars is flowing into the space. The second trend is more and more patients don’t have any relationship with a primary care doctor.

In this episode we dive into these two trends and discuss the impact these trends are having on primary care. We look at whether patients really want a relationship with their doctor or not. We also talk about whether patients would rather have a relationship with a company than a doctor.

Here’s a preview of the questions we discuss in this episode:

  • Do we want a relationship with our Primary Care Physician?
  • Is primary care just a gateway to other parts of healthcare?
  • Can we have a relationship with an organization/company or does it need to be a person?
  • Why is so much investment happening in primary care? Will these startups be successful?
