Bronx, NY (May 2020) – With an emerging trend of retail-style healthcare facilities centered around the patient experience, traditional healthcare facilities must accommodate the demands of their clientele met through these retail clinics to stay competitive. However, instead of competing directly with retail clinics, the best way to incorporate them into the traditional healthcare system is partnership, not competition. What retail clinics provide to patients can be satisfied, alongside what larger hospitals and healthcare centers specialize in, all with a focus around the patient experience. Medical real estate developers, Simone Health, discusses below why healthcare systems should consider partnering with retail clinics.
- Improved quality of care: The top priority of any modern healthcare facility is providing an exceptional healthcare experience to every patient that walks in their doors. By partnering with retail clinics, healthcare systems can improve the quality of care they’re providing, supporting the overall mission of the healthcare industry. Retail clinics are associated with quicker waiting times, fast outpatient services, and low-cost regular tests and procedures. Healthcare facilities can gain a quality care advantage by partnering with a retail clinic that provides quality services at a lower cost paired with a lower time commitment, adhering to the on-demand health needs of modern patients.
- Ability to expand services: In addition to improved patient care quality, retail clinics may provide certain outpatient services that specialized healthcare centers lack. Partnering with a retail clinic provides a specialized healthcare center with an expanded menu of services, increasing their targeted clientele. While specialized care is definitely needed for many purposes, adding routine and non-invasive procedures to the healthcare menu will boost the likelihood of walk-ins and provide higher exposure to your center’s specialized offices.
- Greater accessibility to care: One of the greatest advantages of retail clinics is their accessibility. They can be built on any corner of any street and provide access to high-quality, low-cost healthcare options. This increased accessibility provides an expanded patient reach, benefitting your healthcare center, as well as the patients who gain access to a close, highly-accessible healthcare provider.
Retail clinics are out in the medical world providing high-quality healthcare to patients who are demanding it. Don’t let your healthcare center fall behind the modern trends by partnering with a retail health clinic today.
