PriMED Physicians Contracts With Best Upon Request to Provide Concierge Services to Providers

May 20, 2019

DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 2019--

Physician burnout is at an all-time high in healthcare. With this in mind, PriMED Physicians sought out a way to provide more support to its providers with a unique benefit. They now have access to concierge services, provided by Cincinnati-based Best Upon Request (BEST). The service reduces stress by helping providers manage the demands of their personal and professional lives. BEST’s concierge offers assistance with nearly any item on a provider’s to-do list.

Since the program launched four months ago, 68 percent of PriMED’s providers have utilized concierge services. The concierge is based out of PriMED’s Centerville location and makes rounds to all 13 office locations for errand running services such as oil changes, shopping and food deliveries. In addition, the concierge can provide services like event planning, online shopping and information research.

“I have saved hours of personal time with chores such as dry cleaning, shoe repair and car maintenance,” said Dr. James Seiler, a physician at PriMED’s Woodbury Family Practice. “I’ve even been able to address tasks that had been put off because of the time required, including an auto recall issue and repairing the garage door at home.”

Tillie Hidalgo Lima, CEO of BEST, shared, “We are thrilled to be partnered with PriMED Physicians. It’s our goal that through the gift of time, our services will reduce burnout and increase providers’ capacity to enhance the patient experience.”
