David Cameron, MD has been appointed as Chief Medical Officer for Hint Connect to provide clinical oversight as the DPC network expands nationally. Alongside David, Beth Holmes, Head of Network Development is building the relationships between DPC practices and employers, third party administrators (TPAs), benefit advisors and related entities to unlock DPC benefits for members. Hint Connect launched earlier this year to facilitate individual DPC practices and networks to enroll large and geographically distributed employers to their membership plans.
“Hint Health launched this first-of-its-kind network product to foster deeper relationships between key stakeholders in the DPC ecosystem and solve critical industry challenges in order to make primary care more affordable and accessible to all,'' said Zak Holdsworth, CEO and Co-Founder, Hint Health. “Both David and Beth understand very well those challenges and have years of experience in the DPC industry, which will be instrumental in further building out our network into an even stronger community. We are excited for them to join and are confident in the positive impact they each will make.”
Dr. Cameron formerly served as clinician, medical director, and president of Paladina Health, DaVita Inc.’s direct primary care subsidiary for more than 10 years, overseeing services that spanned 21 states. “We’re helping to solve the problem for employers who have never heard of DPC, and educate them on the advantages DPC brings to their employees' health,” said Cameron. “We equip TPAs to clearly present those benefits to their employer portfolios.”
According to a nationwide consumer survey, while 68% of the 1,000 survey respondents were initially unfamiliar with the DPC model, once it was explained that the all-inclusive primary care program could lower costs, improve outcomes, and raise satisfaction, 83% of those surveyed expressed interest in signing up if DPC was provided through their current or future employer.
