What is concierge medicine?

The “Concierge Medicine” Trend

“Concierge medicine” is a trend in U.S. health care. An elitist approach to heath care, “concierge medicine” allows people with adequate funds to have quicker access to doctor's services like consultations and house calls. It also allows people to pay more and therefore make appoints with specialists and other hard-to-see health care providers.

While the ethics of concierge medicine are debatable, it is an important trend to be aware of as you study for your BSN or MSN at South University Online. You may even benefit from this new style of medicine through increased salaries.
