Urgent care is a consumer-driven with its emphasis on delivering greater convenience, accessibility, hours and service—at a lower cost—than emergency rooms and other health care options. As more consumers obtain insurance through the Affordable Care Act adding to the shortage of primary care available resulting in demand for primary care in the urgent care setting. To meet the need of our patients and to remain competitive in our market this program will demonstrate a model of integrating primary care while maintaining patient flow. Utilize our SNAP patient model to begin capturing your primary care patients.
- Integrate SNAP patient care for patients with fewer than two chronic problems into their urgent care.
- Develop a scheduled care program using a designated provider.
- Integrate scheduled care with one provider without compromising patient wait times.
- Recite the advantages and disadvantages of integrating SNAP and Scheduled Care.
- Modify the EMR system to provide both Urgent and Primary Care in the same location.
