The First Virtual Primary Care Clinic with Dr. Amy Fan of Kinder

What happens when the healthcare system demands that primary care doctors see 1,000 patients poorly rather than 200 patients really well?

A broken patient-doctor relationship.

We need to give agency back to the two populations that matter: patients and physicians.

But how?

Telemedicine is a hot topic right now, and rightfully so. Policies and technology are aligning so that individuals can receive care anywhere.

It’s a worthwhile proposition that may save lives and lower the cost of healthcare.

But telemedicine may be hurting the patient-doctor relationship (or eliminating it).

This may be okay for adults. But for pediatrics? Not so much.

Pediatricians need mutual ownership/agency of the patient from the very beginning.

Because it’s this relationship that leads to the best outcomes.

Meet Kinder – A company that is marrying telemedicine and primary care.

As a millennial and a soon-to-be father, I LOVE this concept and will most likely be a customer and fan (no pun intended).

The Kinder service includes remote well-child visits, after hour emergency services, and a community that answers questions through forums and video content.

Sit back, relax, and become inspired by pediatrician Dr. Amy Fan, the founder of Kinder – The first virtual primary care clinic.


“The ownership of the patient is not possible without changing the way we communicate.”

“Should the system demand the primary care doctor to see a thousand patients badly, instead of seeing two hundred patients really well?”
