AAPP Denver Summit – The most comprehensive program ever offered for new and established private physicians.
As the AAPP events get larger and larger, the time has come for a change. Until now, we have done our best to design a curriculum that would appeal to everyone – private medical veterans and practices that are just beginning to explore the transition to private medicine.
In Denver, we will break with this format and provide four distinct tracks of content:
1. General session presentations for anyone interested in private medicine. Topics will include:
An industry outlook and exploration of the evolving demand and value drivers in private medicine
Legislative updates from the AAPP and the founder and lobbyist from Qliance
A thoughtful discussion on the ethics of private medicine
An exploration of emerging early detection technologies and their role in the delivery of private medical services
2. A track specifically for physicians and their practice managers who are considering the transition to private medicine. Topics will include:
A panel discussion featuring established private physicians representing a variety of business models that you should consider
An in-depth discussion of how to convert a traditional, insurance-based practice to a concierge practice
Legal and regulatory considerations when starting a concierge practice
An exploration of the increasingly popular direct care model by the creator of the model -Dr. Garrison Bliss, Founder of Qliance

Trajectory LLC, creating new customer value and igniting new business growth across healthcare, well-being and healthy lifestyle industries, conducted a qualitative survey among its proprietary, HerView™ database to uncover healthcare marketing insights about how women feel about their primary care physician relationships.
The qualitative survey conducted among Trajectory’s HerView™ database participants was designed to uncover for healthcare marketershow women (who are the “chief health officers” for themselves and their families) feel about their primary care physician relationships. How would they characterize the care they’re receiving today; and what other factors play into their opinions?
Five key survey findings reveal the changing nature of the patient and primary care physician relationship. These findings are important for physician practices, healthcare marketers and healthcare leadership. For many patients, primary care physicians represent the front line of the healthcare system or hospital experience and are a key driver of brand perception, loyalty and growth.
So, how do women feel about their primary care physicians?
1. Survey participants understand that their physicians have a long list of patients to see each day. And patients continue to have confidence in their doctors of choice. But from the patient’s point-of-view, it seems that the system has created a “get us in, get us out” mentality. And with this, “personal touch” can sometimes take a back seat, including devoting time to detailed discussions about choices and alternative options.
2. They feel doctors do a good job of taking care of the physical ailments patients and their families are facing. But given the situation described above, patients’ emotional satisfaction (important to cementing a strong patient-physician relationship) is not as high as it should be. And this compromises the perception of your practice, group, hospital or health system. […]
