Part I - Fundamentals of an Effective Urgent Care Center

Price: $195.00

According to a study published in Health Affairs, between 13.7 percent and 27.1 percent of patients who visit emergency departments could have obtained care from a retail clinic or urgent care clinic (UCC) instead, a move that could reduce U.S. health care spending by up to $4.4 billion annually.

A participant from a previous UCC webinar had this to say: "I have to be honest, I was told to go to this seminar. I was not looking forward to it, however your information was REALLY good and timely. I have gotten so burned out in trying to find a reliable person to get information from to benchmark against. You have provided this. I will be attending the next seminar as well." Roger T. from Salem Health
