As Sir William Olser once said “the good physician treats the disease, the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” 

We couldn’t agree more with Sir William Olser. In order to fully treat a patient, they need to be looked at as a whole person rather than as subsets of systems. There have been barriers to whole-patient treatment for years in the medical system. Communication and transparency have been the two biggest barriers. These barriers have led to skyrocketing costs of procedures that could have been prevented with early prevention as well as unnecessary uncompensated care. The 21st Century CURES Act was passed as a tool to tear down these traditional barriers. Today, the patient can be the center of their own healthcare and use their information to make educated decisions on the direction of their healthcare. 

Hi. We are Directive Health and we were founded earlier this year to bring all of those pieces together and advance consumer-driven healthcare.
