The U.S. Market For Urgent Care Centers

NEW YORK, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The U.S. Market for Urgent Care Centers http://www.reportlinker.com/p01157844/The-US-Market-for-Urgent-Care-Centers.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Medical_Facility

Urgent care centers in the United States provide an increasingly important option between a physician's office and a hospital emergency room. They provide walk-in, extended hour access for acute illness and injury care that is either beyond the scope or availability of the typical primary care practice. With a need to reduce emergency room visits and the influx of patients expected due to healthcare reform legislation, urgent care could play a decisive role in healthcare in the near future.

This report, The U.S. Market for Urgent Care Centers, represents Kalorama's analysis of the current market and future opportunity for urgent care centers. The report looks at center location growth, and the market for services performed by urgent care centers.

The report also looks at sales that suppliers may earn selling products to urgent care centers including the following:

• Breakout of Urgent Care Revenues by Type (Cold/Flu, Infectious Disease, Laceration/Wound, Fracture Sprain, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Physical, Respiratory, Others)• IVD Sales to Urgent Care Centers• X-Ray Sales to Urgent Care Centers• Other Imaging Sales to Urgent Care Centers• Prescriptions Written by Urgent Care Centers• Vaccinations Performed by Urgent Care Centers

The urgent care business model involves providing a full range of services of non-emergency acute care. The model promises service and relies on a substantial investment in equipment and staff. Most have a physician on staff, generally more than one. UCC's differ from traditional Physicians' offices with procedure rooms for lacerations and fractures, radiology department for x-ray services, and a laboratory. While some traditional physician practices may have these facilitates, it is more the exception. Convenient hours are a key strength of urgent care centers. Most urgent cares have hours at least as early as 8 a.m. but sometimes 7 a.m. and close at 8-10 p.m. at night.

In addition to market estimates and forecasts, the report provides the following:
