Increasing Number of Health Systems Operating Retail-Based Care

PHILADELPHIA, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- As the number of convenient care clinics across the country steadily increases, more and more hospitals and health systems are exploring this relatively new health care trend. Due to the increased prevalence of health systems operating retail-based clinics, the Convenient Care Association has created a forum specifically for non-profit health systems.

The goal of the group is to discuss challenges and opportunities and to share best-practices in merging the traditional health system model with retail-based care. To date, there are more than 1,200 convenient care clinics, more than 95 percent of those are operated by members of the association and approximately 10 percent are operated by health systems.

To date, there has been little operational guidance for managers of retail clinics linked to health systems. "Health systems are finding that this group is a great networking opportunity," said Dean Lin, CEO of Careworks Convenient Healthcare, Geisinger Health System's retail clinic business. Lin also chairs the CCA's health system round-table. "It is valuable to share best practices and to discuss ideas that help to identify opportunities and mitigate the risks associated with this model of care, as well as integrating it with the system's overall continuum of care," he continued.

Retail clinic executives from several health systems met first in 2008 to discuss shared challenges and opportunities. With the formal support of the CCA, they are now planning to meet quarterly to help address the unique issues that health systems may face in running convenient care clinics. The group is open by invitation, please contact Dean Lin (dqlin@geisinger.edu'/>"/>
