Cory Annis, MD, Unorthodoc Direct Primary Care, Carrboro, NC
Dr. Cory Annis has been practicing medicine for over 20 years in various settings, including at a VA hospital, a large independent practice, and most recently in a Direct Primary Care (DPC) solo practice.
As is the case with most DPC physicians, Dr. Annis had a “desire to provide a simpler, more direct, more personal approach for primary care.” She also needed strong patient engagement tools to help build relationships with her patients (varying in age from Millennials to 90-year olds). But first and foremost, she wanted to spend as much time interacting with her patients as possible.
In June 2015, Dr. Annis founded Unorthodoc, her own DPC practice. Unbound by traditional requirements and EHR limitations, she’s having real conversations with her patients and giving them the attention they want, leading to her favorite compliment to date: “Gee, Dr. Annis! You’re not like a real doctor at all!”
To accomplish this success, she needed the right tools for her DPC practice. This meant determining an easy way to communicate with patients electronically, finding an EHR with the right workflow that limits her time in the system, and establishing a method to manage her memberships and direct payments.
Dr. Annis is currently using Amazing Charts InLight EHR and its integration with the patient engagement solution Twistle. These vendors had experience with DPC and offered the efficiencies she preferred.
