At The Kempton Group, we’re always seeking out like-minded, innovative providers who are interested in applying transparent, free-market principles to healthcare.
We believe this is how our broken healthcare system can be repaired – and how physicians and other medical professionals can rediscover their passion for caring.
A Revolution in Healthcare Transparency
Healthcare services should be viewed just like any other purchase. Healthcare transparency provides consumers with information and incentive to choose healthcare providers based on value – not just price, but the balance between price and quality.
Providing reliable cost and quality information empowers consumer choice. When consumers become aware that high value healthcare is far less costly, they begin to change the way they perceive their healthcare buying decisions.
It makes for healthier patient-physician relationships, fewer bureaucratic hassles, better pay and better outcomes.
Some of the Kempton Group’s Clients
A Surgical Example
Surgery Center of Oklahoma has offered cash-pay, bundled pricing for decades – starting the healthcare revolution we have taken part in. They transparently advertise their comprehensive prices, employ only the best surgeons, and the results are staggering:
- Constant flow nationwide patients
- Exceptional outcomes
- Exceedingly low infection rates
- Prices hospitals can’t compete with
The Primary Care Approach
The primary care version of this transparent, free-market healthcare philosophy is called Direct Primary Care (DPC). This membership-based model uses a fixed monthly fee per patient. The fee is typically between $50-$100 per month, paid by the employer or patient. No charges incurred at the time of the visit and access to the physician is expanded beyond the traditional office hours of 8-5.
- No Insurance Hassles
- Less Paperwork
- More Time With Patients
- Better Outcomes
- Lower Overhead
The Free Market Medical Association
The Free Market Medical Association (FMMA) is leading the charge for transparency, free-market principles and fairness in healthcare. We’re doing this by looking at healthcare like any other market: A paradigm of bringing together willing buyers with sellers and facilitators in a transparent marketplace.
