etail clinics are a potentially important avenue of care within the models being pushed by the federal government and private payers under reform. PPACA establishes a new grant program to fund nurse-managed health clinics for the purpose of providing comprehensive primary care and wellness services to underserved or vulnerable populations. Services in this type of setting may include treatment of acute episodic conditions, physical examinations, vaccinations, health screenings, and prevention and management of chronic conditions (Fitzgerald K.) For example vaccines are among the most cost-effective clinical preventive services to offer, and are essential for decreasing morbidity and mortality in vulnerable populations (Healthy People, 2014), and having venues such as RCs is a viable method of increasing access to vaccinations. They also provide services to patients with or without insurance or a primary care.
The retail clinics are advantageous to patient outcome because they are located in retail supermarket and pharmacy chains to provide high-quality, affordable, and easily accessible health care services for communities. They improve patient outcome through offering patient-centered, comprehensive, and accessible, and also coordinating care with all of the patients’ primary care and specialty care provider teams. They providing health promotion and disease prevention, education to patients to maximize the impact of the patient encounter. Through providing a copy of the visit record, written discharge instructions, and education material to patients upon leaving the clinic to ensure that patients understand any diagnosis made, recommended treatment, and care plans, they engage patients in their own care. They are committed to continuity of care and better outcomes through encouraging patients to establish an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider, and to making appropriate and careful referrals for follow-on care or for conditions that are outside of the scope of the clinic’s services.
