Published: 10 Jun 2016

Convenient care clinics or retail clinics are growing across the nation, Frost & Sullivan estimates that the number of retail clinics will double by as early as 2021. This high growth is riding on an insured population that grew with additional 17.6 million people, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, and primary care physician shortages leading to longer wait times to see a physician, and the rise of consumerism in healthcare, with patients displaying consumer-like characteristics. While the adoption of retail clinics is only set to rise, most stakeholders do not realize the staffing challenge they face for future growth.
