As you may have seen, the Urgent Care Association just came out with the latest version of its Urgent Care Benchmarking Report. And if you weren’t aware of that until now, be assured that other segments of the healthcare marketplace have noticed. Becker’s Hospital Review, in fact, alerted their online readers to the report’s update recently, highlighting three key pieces of data. After relaying that the urgent care marketplace continues to grow across the board, thanks to patients’ increasingly prioritizing favorable wait times and convenience, the article noted that urgent care has grown 9.6% since the previous edition of the report; that 97% of urgent care patient encounters last 1 hour or less; and that 30% of urgent care centers that do not currently offer telemedicine services intend to start doing so within the next year. (JUCM is the official publication of the Urgent Care Association and of the College of Urgent Care Medicine.)
