Hint launched in 2013 with one mission – to provide the tools for direct care doctors to automate their back office operations and DPC administration. Hint’s advanced SaaS platform includes all the software engines for robust plan management, patient onboarding, billing & collections, eligibility management and even inventory control necessary to streamline a direct primary care practice. Practices using Hint average more than $29,000 in recovered revenue annually which would have been lost due to billing issues, simultaneously saving 25 employee hours each month. Hint’s services allow a DPC practice to rapidly scale-up and effectively serve many more patients.
The direct primary care model is typically structured as a monthly subscription, with patients paying their doctor anywhere from $25 to $100 per month for service which typically includes all routine visits, same-day or next-day appointments and even medications and lab tests purchased at a wholesale price. Hint has found that less than 2% of DPC practices charge more than $175 per month.
