This week on the Functional Forum Podcast, we feature Wayne Dysinger, MD. Dr. Dysinger is a leader in the lifestyle medicine space and is actively building a membership-based practice for his new innovative clinic in California, Lifestyle Medicine Solutions.
Dr. Dysinger has implemented many of the things we have suggested during throughout the Functional Forum. He’s incorporated a membership program and fully embraces lifestyle medicine. He’s implemented group learning and community outreach, and health coaches and tech tools are an integral part of the success of his practice. He talks about these strategies and more.
On this podcast you will hear:
- Why Dr. Dysinger moved his Direct Primary Care practice into the Lifestyle Medicine realm and how do “support groups” fit into personal responsibility and health behavior change?
- What is a “MACN” and how does it fit into his practice and why is every patient assigned one? (Medical Assistant Coach Navigator)
- The hybrid payment model that Dr. Dysinger chose for his new clinic and how he integrates this into his practice to best support his patients and his success plan.
- Why Dr. Dysinger believes membership-based medicine is key to success in a world where patients are seeking healthcare partners and advocates, rather than the old model of simply treating the sick
