I am eager to get in touch with anyone who has experience with any of the
1) Establishing a free-standing urgent care center in partnership/as an
extension of a large primary care or multi-specialty IPA.
2) Incorporating an observation unit (clinical decision unit) into a
free-standing urgent care center.
3) Partnering with an IPA that has negotiated capitation for all "outpatient
services" (primary care, specialty care and ED/urgent care).
Thanks in advance for helping me to locate any knowledgeable resources!.
