These forms of private medicine aim to increase the interaction between physician and patient, boosting the quality of preventive care and in turn decreasing the long-term cost of care. "We are excited about the opportunity to work with the AAPP and its members," said Al Canal, Chief Relations Officer for BHG. "As a financing partner that is committed to speed, efficiency and customer service, we are uniquely positioned to serve physicians in concierge medicine who are focused on spending more time with their patients to deliver better healthcare." Through the partnership, AAPP members will have direct access to dedicated account representatives and financing solutions customized to their needs as physicians practicing private medicine. "Selecting Bankers Healthcare Group as our official financing partner is a huge win for the AAPP and our members," stated Tom Blue, Executive Director of the AAPP. "In today's financing climate, it is a challenge for practitioners to find a bank that is willing to lend money, especially for private practice physicians. BHG only works with healthcare professionals, so they fully grasp the day-to-day challenges our members face. That understanding is going to be very beneficial to our members."
