Making the Transition to PartnerMD

Our team is here to help you get started and get settled. 

Change is hard. Here's how we help.

One of the most difficult parts of taking a concierge medicine physician job is actually saying yes. What happens then? We've learned a lot as we've grown from one physician to more than 30, and we're ready to make your transition as seamless as possible.

We help you communicate the switch to your patients.

One of the biggest challenges about switching to concierge medicine is the unavoidable reality that you're going to have to leave some patients behind. When reducing your panel from 2,000 to 500, that's just an unfortunate fact. 

But you don't have to communicate that on your own. 

Our team will work with you and provide emails, letters, unique websites, business cards, and other communication tools to support your conversations.

In addition, we provide a dedicated membership expert to be your point of contact, and your patients' point of contact. Your membership expert works closely with our marketing team to both welcome your current patients to PartnerMD and attract new ones.

We coordinate the insurance credentialing process and malpractice insurance applications.

Ugh, paperwork. Right?

Because we do accept insurance and Medicare, one of the tedious aspects of making the switch is going through the credentialing process with various insurers and updating your malpractice insurance. 

Our team acts as the intermediary and makes sure your questions, requests, and paperwork are submitted and resolved promptly.

We provide comprehensive training during your first two weeks to set you up for success.

We're not going to throw you into the deep end and hope you can swim in this new world. Your first two weeks will involve comprehensive training about practicing concierge medicine, learning our EMR system, and managing our in-office processes. 

Many of our new physicians find they have to "re-learn" how to practice in this new, unrushed environment. That's another one of the biggest challenges for physicians switching to concierge medicine

We'll even pair you up with a fellow physician mentor who has been in your shoes before, so you have another doctor to talk to who gets what you're going through, too.
