MAY 1, 2017 – There’s little evidence that emerging payment models (eg, concierge medicine, cash-only practices, [DPC] and accountable care organizations [ACOs]) are gaining any serious traction in urgent care—but that doesn’t mean they’re not making headway elsewhere. ACOs, in particular, are growing in usage among physicians, according to the Medscape Physician Compensation Report 2017. Usage of cash-only [DPC] and concierge models is also growing, albeit much more modestly, as the graph below shows.
The Journal of Urgent Care Medicine® (JUCM) is the official journal of the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA). Each issue contains a mix of peer-reviewed clinical and practice management articles that address the distinct clinical and practice management needs of those who are working in today’s busy urgent care centers. JUCM’s reach of over 33,000 includes qualified clinicians, business and administrative professionals working in urgent care facilities nationwide.
