With Emergency Department volumes down nationally, some argue that the explosion of Urgent Care centers are partially responsible for this phenomenon. Some argue that Urgent Cares provide an alternative to long waits and slow progressing institutions.
Typically Urgent Care centers offer quick and efficient care that can also be more patient focused as historically they have less bureaucracy and are more forward thinking. In any event these centers are here to stay and too struggle with some of the same inefficiencies that larger hospitals and ER's face. Partnering with ScribeAmerica to provide medical scribes will allow urgent cares to run a leaner process and have the confidence that they can now solely focus on patient care.
