About the Seminar:The present structure of health care providers and payers is good at two things: streamlining the doctor's interaction with patients and negotiating rates with large patient populations in the balance. However, actually providing care to patients is a bit of a byproduct. Doctor On Demand seeks to refocus everyone on the doctor-patient interaction. By providing quick direct access via telemedicine to board-certified physicians for a predetermined fee, questions of "When?" and "How much?" fade into the background. The answers are simple: "Now" and "$40".
So what could go wrong? We'll look at questions of scalability, economic barriers for patients, and medical complexity, to see if this model can become the standard for initial doctor-patient interactions.
About the Presenter:Dr. Pat Basu, a Board Certified Physician, is the Chief Medical Officer of Doctor on Demand. He was previously the Chief Operating Officer, Chief Medical Officer, and Director of the Board at vRad -- the largest technology enabled national radiology practice. Dr. Basu also served on the State Board of Health in Illinois.
Dr. Basu helped shape economic and health care agendas during his time as a White House Fellow, and has also held faculty and research appointments at Stanford University that centered on health care cost, access and quality. Throughout his career, he has consulted for Fortune 500 companies, venture capital firms, and major medical centers on growth strategy, cost containment, revenue enhancement, and operational optimization. Dr. Basu holds a Medical Doctorate and Masters in Business Administration from University of Chicago. He also holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Illinois.
