tional improvement."

MinuteClinic health care centers are staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family health care and are trained to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections. Minor wounds, abrasions and joint sprains are treated, and common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, pneumovax, and Hepatitis A & B are available at all locations. In addition, MinuteClinic administers a series of wellness services designed to help consumers identify lifestyle changes needed to improve their current and future health, including screenings for diabetes, hypertension and obesity.

The Joint Commission conducted unannounced, on-site evaluations of MinuteClinic locations across the country during the third quarter of 2009. The accreditation award recognizes MinuteClinic's dedication to complying with the Joint Commission's state-of-the-art standards on a continuous basis.

Nearly all MinuteClinic medical centers are open seven days a week with weekday evening hours. No appointments are required. Most visits are covered by insurance, and the average price of services for those paying out of pocket is $62.

Every MinuteClinic patient assessment and treatment follows nationally established clinical practice guidelines from the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement, American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics that are embedded in MinuteClinic's electronic medical records system (EMR). Using the EMR, practitioners generate educational material, an invoice, a prescription (when clinically appropriate) and a diagnostic record that can be sent to the patient's primary care provider. A collaborating physician (medical director) is on call during operating hours.

The Joint Commission accreditation supports recent research about the quality of care provided
