Concierge medicine provides a more personalized medical care and service than other alternatives. But one company in particular is using a model to take that personalized service a step closer, working closely with physicians to preserve, protect, and optimize the patient-physician relationship. This is all led by the winner of Most Influential CEO, 2022 – New York, the USA: Dean McElwain, Ph.D.
Castle Connolly Private Health Partners (CCPHP) partners with exceptional physicians to offer concierge (membership-based) programs to individuals who prioritize health and wellbeing. The model empowers and protects the physician-patient relationship, helping physicians practice the way they intended, and Ltd patients receive the care they deserve and need.
Its CEO and Co-Founder, Dr Dean McElwain, has his own story in healthcare, leveraging 30 years of progressive leadership experience in the healthcare field. He also has provided instruction and guidance, specifically in the field of concierge medicine itself. Lecturing and consulting with prominent companies, organizations, and figures in the healthcare world while bringing his robust portfolio of knowledge and experience to guide the team at CCPHP.
As a leader ,Dr McElwain’s overarching directive is to create an environment that fosters value. Creating value applies not only to shareholders and their physician partners but, most importantly, to members. The member experience is the driving force behind its core values of collaboration and empowerment. These values inform not only how the team operates daily, but the directions leadership takes in ensuring the delivery of its promises to all.
Additionally, Dean recognizes that his team members are essential in delivering the excellence associated with the Castle Connolly brand. He ensures the team is brimming with innovative collaborators who have a passion for exceeding expectations for both partner physicians and members. The work culture of CCPHP is centered around kindness, directness, and accountability. Its three-fold focus exists to create an environment where the team can openly share and collaborate on problems to find innovative ways to deliver exceptional service together.
At Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, members pay a fee for a wide array of amenities and enhancements for convenient, comprehensive and personalized healthcare. Its concierge medicine model supports strong physician-patient collaboration, with an intense focus on patient wellness and preventive care to a degree far greater than competitors.
Patients and physicians of CCPHP forge unbreakable bonds of trust and comfort, resulting in stronger physician-patient relationships —all leading to higher patient satisfaction and wellness, increased job satisfaction and less physician stress.
Thanks to years of forward thinking and the development of its membership model, CCPHP was minimally affected by the change of circumstances during the pandemic. The healthcare industry (primary care in general) faced unprecedented challenges. With the onset of the pandemic, primary care physicians saw the evaporation of visit revenue and a pivot towards virtual care. Specifically, CCPHP’s membership model practices were minimally affected, as they had sustainable revenue streams and a pre-pandemic capability with virtual care. The robust migration of primary care physicians and patients moving toward the membership model has benefited patients and physicians in the unstable environment of primary care.
This innovative approach remains at the forefront of the leadership’s mind. Dean has already set up a growth plan for the practice that spans the future years, looking to integrate many tech-based delivery platforms and implement further primary and specialty care options.
He also plans to develop the company’s presence by continuing to create great partnerships with leading physicians in both independent and group practices, as well as larger system environments. They are also working with existing independent concierge practices to take equity stakes and invest in their continued growth and success.
Dean and CCPHP are both equally as impressive. What the company has built and accomplished makes it a shining light in the industry. But the man who led them there is not only a credit to the business, but to the industry – doing far more than guiding his team, and those around them, to greater heights. His influence and insight cannot be overstated. Thus, his award for Most Influential CEO of 2022 for New York is well warranted.
