About Our Polls and What Trend(s) We See Happening In the Private, Subscription-Based Medical Care Marketplace.

The universities, investment firms, physicians, industry consultants and our team, understand that polls and the related surveys that accompany them are not to be considered scientific. Not everything is scientific, nor should it be. How can you measure the emotional quotient of a 90-minute conversation between a doctor and his patient where the patient walks away feeling that their doctor really understands their needs and is working hard to make your life better? You can’t. But with innovation in healthcare comes new questions and important discussions and we have to start somewhere. We must ask the questions people want to know … for example, “How many minutes will a Concierge Doctor spend with their patients, on average?” or “What type of phone calls do Concierge Doctors get from their Patients?”

The polling and surveys we conduct are important because cumulatively, they reveal and identify important industry errors, trends, shortcomings, successes and more.

Today and in the years past, the media (not all, but a majority) has and will continue to shape its coverage about this topic based on outdated surveys, previous reported numbers and old media interviews. Which is why we see the same facts, comments and figures consistently cited in the media. Furthermore, the age of the average journalist is getting younger. Physicians should expect well researched and a more thorough analyses about a particular topic (i.e. Concierge Medicine) when interviewed by more experienced and typically, older journalists. It is a sad commentary on the news media, which has gotten more and more agenda-driven and shapes their coverage of free market healthcare delivery models based on inaccurate assumptions and old, flawed surveys. It is lazy journalism and, despite this data point, the media will keep on keeping on in this way.

“It’s not what one poll indicates that should be important. It’s the cumulative data trend(s) that multiple polls assemble and stringed together that make what we do so important.” ~Michael Tetreault, Editor-in-Chief

Another important data point is the fact that we spend a great deal of time on all the national polling trends for, against and about Concierge Medicine, its demographically younger familial business model companion, Direct Primary Care (DPC), retail healthcare and the like. More and more we’re beginning to see the discussion around innovative healthcare delivery models and its unknown questions, considerations and application needs to start somewhere.That’s why we feel our countless interviews since 2007, face-to-face conversations, meetings, surveys and specific polling questions about items not so scientific, but which are personal and practical are so important. We must continue to further the discussion about the benefits, pros and cons, costs and related subject matter about this growing healthcare delivery model across America.
