Acute Care And Hospitals – Industry Information

  • Patients are looking for convenience, and even the most loyal are no longer willing to rearrange their schedules to fit a provider’s time.
  • Clinics are also embracing “retailization” thinking. That is, designing waiting rooms and lobby spaces to resemble a spa-like environment. This is done by displaying local art, offering educational materials, and even scenting the air to put patients at ease.
  • Clinics who see the importance of managing this crucial point in the patient experience are carefully selecting the right people for the job.
  • In today’s landscape, urgent cares must think retail by reducing the friction between the patient and what they’re asking them to do, simplify the steps to getting care, and presenting it all in a patient-friendly way.
  • Technology partners are providing a valuable service by helping urgent care clinics access actionable data with real-time dashboards. This provides at-a-glance metrics, accurate reports, and analytics options built to suit urgent care organizations.
