Disrupt Medicine

The Big Picture

It’s not news to any American that our healthcare system is broken:

  • Total healthcare costs exceed $3.5 trillion – approaching 20% of GDP
  • Families are paying $20,000+ per year – exceeding monthly mortgage payments for some
  • Out-of-pocket expenses topping $5,000, even with insurance

We're not going to slash the total cost in half overnight, but we have set out to break the status quo. We are a group of professionals passionate about fixing our broken healthcare system by infusing consumerism - transforming patients into consumers and giving them better, lower cost options.

Our initial weapon: subscription-based medicine. Our audience: 90+ million Americans.

Before we expand on why subscription-based medicine, let’s talk a bit about primary care.  To us, primary care means people making an initial approach to a doctor or nurse for treatment of basic or common rather than specialized issues. Today, that includes visits to a doctor, urgent care, or emergency room (ER).

America faces primary care challenges in numerous ways. Here are some:

  • Growing shortage of GPs, especially in rural America as some have described it as “a primary-care desert”
  • Accessing primary care – time to schedule, time to get there, wait times, accessing during nights and weekends, while traveling, working couples with young children, elderly, and disabled
  • Paying for primary care: pay-per-visit; mostly out-of-pocket; and rising

Why subscription-based medicine?

Subscription-based medicine, in contrast to pay-per visit, disrupts conventional healthcare because it seriously simplifies how Americans pay for healthcare--essentially by taking the insurance companies out of the equation.

With the current model, like your auto-insurance premium which increases with each accident, each pay-per-visit to a doctor, urgent care, or ER contributes to higher premiums; not to mention the ever increasing out-of-pocket expenses.

In contrast, with subscription-based medicine, you pay a fixed monthly fee for primary medical care. 

  • No deductibles
  • No co-pays 
  • No reimbursement hassles
  • No premium increases

Steps to subscription-based medicine

- Telehealth

Not only is telemedicine convenient—and preferred by many over brick-and-mortar visits; it also lowers costs by positively redirecting patients away from more costly care settings. And it's only going to get better as we improve on traditional telemedicine with our in-home medical diagnostics and the introduction of our mental health benefits.

     - Urgent Care

Urgent Care is still pay-per-visit. But the seeds of subscription-based urgent care, just like the emergence—and explosive growth--of urgent care itself a decade or so ago, are being sowed right here in New England.

      -Direct Primary Care

DPC is inherently subscription-based. But DPC providers face marketing prowess and sales muscle to grow their business. The challenge is to aggregate today’s fragmented DPC providers into a uniform subscription model and market those services through HPP’s established channels.

Steps Beyond

We are dreamers and we'll never stop in our quest to deliver improved care for a lower cost. Be on the lookout for announcements of our latest developments.
