PE HIT | Educating patients about using both facilities [Urgent Care + Retail HCs]

Urgent care and retail health clinics are two distinct entities that both help deliver convenient patient care access.

By Sara Heath

– Urgent care and retail health clinics have been instrumental in supplementing patient healthcare access. These alternative treatment facilities allow patients to receive care outside of their primary care clinic’s restrictive office schedule and without having to step into an emergency department. Both retail health clinics and urgent care clinics are gaining popularity. Urgent care clinics have reached $15 billion in market worth, Kalorama Information reported earlier in 2017. Urgent care clinics are seeing huge numbers of patients, topping off at 15,300 patients annually and 294 patients weekly in 2016.
