Retail Clinics 2015: Growth of Stores, Consumer Opinion, Leading Competitors, Sales of Products to Clinics (Diagnostic Tests, Pharmaceuticals, Vaccines), Clinic Sales Forecasts and Trends

Retail health clinics are a fast-growing and unique segment of the U.S. health care system. A concept less than two decades old, retail clinics are typically located in drug store, mass retailers or grocery stores for maximum convenience to the users. They offer low cost services, accept insuracne, staff with nurses or nurse practitioners and have increased hours generally over other medical venues. This report, Retail Clinics 2015, defines the industry and the opportunity for suppliers of healthcare clinics seeking new markets.

Key service providers are profiled. Among these are:

MinuteClinic
RediClinic
Reliance Medical Finance
Target Clinic Medical Associates
Walgreens
Access Health
Aurora Quick Care
Bellin Health FastCare
CareSpot
Clear Balance
The Little Clinic

Convenience clinics by nature are designed to occupy small spaces and provide just basic care. Therefore, they do not use most of the sophisticated medical equipment found in hospitals or specialty centers such as advanced imaging devices. However, retail clinics are becoming relatively large users of point-of-care (POC) tests, clinical chemistry and immunoassay laboratory tests and vaccines. Retail Clinics 2015 looks at retail clinic concept's impact and growth of market over the next five years, including:
