Our goal is to utilize this network to determine the best practice designs for marketing, service offerings, staff training, cross coverage, business management, practice growth and other issues that will add value and quality to your day to day practice. We believe the benefits of affiliation will so outweigh the cost that you will find membership in ACPP a top priority near that of membership in your specialty society.

Advocacy and a strong political voice are important aspects of our charter. We have strong representation with both state and national governments to lobby politicians on the benefits of direct practice. We will show the policy makers that the work we do is not just for those who can easily afford it, but must be made the standard, and a viable choice, for primary care everywhere. Primary care cannot be seen as purely transactional, but based on the relationships that promote trust and confidence between doctor and patient. This is ultimately the best way to lower cost, enhance quality, prevent medical errors, and improve satisfaction.

Another ACPP goal is to further expand the now limited research data base to document the qualities and benefits of direct practice.

Though preliminary data is quite promising, it remains to be shown that models other than the one studied above are excellent, cost effective models as well. We intend to develop an objective research arm that should make this conclusion undeniable. No matter what your practice model, you will want to be part of this effort for your own good, for the good of the profession and the health of the nation.

ACPP is the professional society for established, successfully functioning direct practices. We do not serve in any way as a conversion company. Credentialing will ensure that our members are properly board certified physicians who are in good standing and whose practice income is derived primarily from direct membership payments rather than insurance-driven reimbursements. In so doing we will grow a thriving, visible market for individuals, employers, unions and perhaps even government agencies seeking our services as your unique value becomes obvious to all.
