Hint Health Announces 7th Annual Hint Summit, the Leading DPC Innovation Conference

As one of the largest gatherings of the Direct Primary Care movement in the U.S., the event features three days of collaboration to advance the latest industry innovations


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Feb. 2, 2023) Hint Health, the company powering the direct primary care (DPC) movement, today announced its seventh annual Hint Summit. The event will take place in-person and virtually September 20-23, 2023 at the Port Pavilion on the bay in San Diego, CA. As one of the largest gatherings of DPC providers in the country, the summit is the premiere event for innovation and growth in the Direct Primary Care industry in addition to celebrating how far DPC has come.

As a solution to address issues like the increasing primary care provider burnout, patient dissatisfaction, and ballooning employer costs that are plaguing patients and providers, DPC offers an alternative to the traditional, broken healthcare system with a subscription-based primary care. This method of cutting insurance out of the process puts healthcare back in the hands of patients and has led to the accelerated growth of DPC, which saw membership across the U.S. increase 241% from 2017 to 2021.

In its seventh year, Hint Summit 2023 will empower attendees to apply new strategies to their own businesses, while showcasing how the DPC industry is reengineering the business of healthcare. This year’s event, themed “Hint on the Bay,” features insights from national Direct Primary Care enthusiasts, technology entrepreneurs, and clinicians who are committed to furthering the direct care ecosystem. For DPC innovators that are unable to attend in-person, virtual tickets will be available to join the summit’s livestream to encourage engagement globally.

“Whether you want to expand your network or break ground with a new idea, Hint Summit is a hive mind of industry professionals revolutionizing healthcare,” said Zak Holdsworth, CEO and Co-Founder of Hint Health. “From stimulating conversations with first-person perspectives, tailored workshops and networking events, the DPC industry’s premier innovation event is a remarkable opportunity that enables attendees to address the massive inefficiencies in the traditional fee-for-service model while supporting the burgeoning movement towards a new standard in U.S. healthcare.”

Preceding the 2023 summit, Hint will host the first ever DPC Launch day, where committed clinicians and residents will partake in beginning their practice over the course of a single, day-long workshop. Returning by popular demand, the DPC Accelerator LIVE Bootcamp will provide those beginning an independent practice or growing with a large patient panel of interactive sessions led by clinicians and business specialists to grow and scale their practice. Key takeaways will include best practices to manage your healthcare business, along with strategies to build retail growth and perfect the member experience.

This year’s summit will include keynote speakers who are leading voices for driving change in healthcare:

Featured topics and themes will include:

  • Trends and Innovations in Primary Care Payment & Delivery Models

  • Working with Employers: Case Studies & Success Stories

  • Proven Strategies for DPC Growth

  • Leadership, Life Lessons & Navigating Change

  • The Legislative & Regulatory Landscape for Direct Care (State and Federal)

  • The Future of Direct Care

  • Healthy Debates: Perspectives on Controversial Topics in DPC

  • Diversity & Inclusion in Primary Care

Hint Health will also be presenting the first annual DPC Awards to spotlight the top DPC providers and platforms that are going above and beyond to serve their patients and customers. Additional details on the awards, including how to apply, will be shared in February, and winners will be announced at Hint Summit 2023.
