The Medical Access network has been designed from the ground up to provide direct primary care for everyone in the country. The Medical Access idea combines complete personal health care with a local primary care physician.
The model for Medical Access is simple and straight-forward. Every medical community will form a community medical foundation to operate their own fair efficient system. The national Medical Access network will allow foundations to be up and running in a matter of weeks. The system can quickly serve uncovered patients by matching them with their preferred primary physicians.
With the Medical Access system, each doctor will run his own practice as a “health maintenance club” or “medical home”. Frustrated physicians will come out of retirement to run a successful practice without interference from insurance companies and top-down management.
