Anyone who has ever turned on a high beam with their left foot will remember Dr. Marcus Welby. I can think of no better example of a good patient/physician relationship, which has MANY good effects: It reduces lawsuits, patients usually are less medicated, they get less un-needed tests, and they are usually healthier. Insurance companies and government may not like it, because they lose a say in the matter, and the ability to micromanage the process and collect data. Patients who value their privacy love it.
Overly managed medical plans interfere with this relationship, and increase the cost of care, while decreasing the quality. If doctors opt out of third-party controlled transactions, they empower patients.
If you visit a doctor, and a third-party pays for that visit, that third-party will demand rights to YOUR PRIVATE MEDICAL INFORMATION.
Using MediBid connects YOU the patient directly to a PRIVATE physician free of a third-party payer infringing on your medical privacy. You simply enter your profile and medical request, and allow private physicians to bid on provision of that care.
