RESEARCH VALIDATES RETAIL CLINICS

Published Online: Tuesday, January 1, 2008   [ Request Print ]

New research sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) touts the benefits of retail clinics in helping improve employee health while cutting health care costs.

Although the traditional health care delivery system has been effective at handling complex cases, retail clinics may be better suited to the well-organized delivery of preventive care that patients need more regularly to maintain their health and well-being.

Bradley Perkins, chief strategy and innovation officer for the CDC, said that preventive measures such as smoking cessation, adult immunization, and screening for chronic conditions were all deemed to have cost-saving benefits.
