I recently heard a Yale-trained advanced practice nurse discuss the human connection in healing and how critical cultivating a relationship is to best position a patient to achieve a health goal. She shared best practices and offered strategies to avoid typical pitfalls that lead to what clinicians call "patient non-compliance."

The clinic, accepts these time dollars, it says, as a way to preserve the dignity of low and no-income patients and help them get the most out of their treatment. Tom Dahlborg, the executive director of True North, explained to NPR that when he worked in Medicaid, patients had an attitude of  “'Oh, it's free care, so I don't really deserve that much anyways.' " From the article:  [Dahlborg] says patients at True North who pay with time dollars are fully engaged. "We'll hear from a landscaper [who] will say, 'I mowed five lawns in the last month so I could bring my children in to see your pediatric nurse practitioner. This darn well better be a good visit,' " Dahlborg says. They certainly get a lengthy visit. Patients are allowed to spend up to an hour or more with their doctors. "They're developing empathy and trust together, which by the way is in the Hippocratic oath, however most people see that as woo-woo stuff," he says. "They don't just want to get just medical information from you, they want to get a spiritual background," Barth says.

Tom Dahlborg, the executive director of True North, used to work in Medicaid, where he thought the patients weren't getting enough from their health care.
"People would come in for care and they would be like, 'OK, give me what you can, that's fine,' and they really weren't engaged in it," Dahlborg says. "It was almost like a guilt, like, 'Oh, it's free care, so I don't really deserve that much anyways.' "
But he says patients at True North who pay with time dollars are fully engaged.
"We'll hear from a landscaper [who] will say, 'I mowed five lawns in the last month so I could bring my children in to see your pediatric nurse practitioner. This darn well better be a good visit,' " Dahlborg says.

But according to Dahlborg, the biggest problem isn't finding patients who want to take part in the program - it's finding doctors who are willing to go outside the system and barter for health care.
"It's still very difficult from a pragmatic perspective to go from a guaranteed salary where insurance is driving business to you," Dahlborg says.
