    Trends and Advances in Urgent Care

    More than half of non-Medicare age insured Americans get their health benefit coverage through their employers. The estimated cost to employers in 2019 is expected to reach $15,000 per employee. Rapid change is taking place in healthcare delivery to continue to drive quality, access, and value. The urgent care field was born as a retail healthcare solution for patients of all ages.

    CareNow Executive Director Joseph Palguta will discuss trends and advances in urgent care.

    Objectives: 

    1. Consider the latest trends in contracting. Deductibles, co-pays and more – how is appropriate steerage to urgent care a cost-effective part of every comprehensive benefit package?
    2. Discuss how finding the right care at the right time is impacting cost.    
    3. Learn how a professional healthcare delivery network offers quality, access and value.
