    Agree. I find it very helpful and efficient to send all my high-paying patients with URIs to the MinuteClinic to get the expected quinolone treatment, so I can devote my schedule entirely to the demented, incontinent, centenarians with DM, HTN, CAD, schizophrenia, open decubiti on Medicare/Medicaid who are sent over from the nursing home in ambulances.

  2. This is interesting. Not sure I have seen too many commercials posted on THCB but this brief tv ad conveys a critically important message about the future direction of care. The minute clinic concept helps solve some of the central challenges in health care today. I just reread the IOM Chasm report from 14 years ago and I suspect that the authors would welcome this development. Minute clinics help our country in pursuit of access, quality, equity, convenience and affordability. In addition, these clinics help mitigate the primary care physician shortage which will likely grow more acute. This is the sort of disruptive change that I believe will help us get closer to being able to achieve the Triple Aim. Recently returned from the IHI annual forum in Orlando — fantastic meeting. But I didn’t hear much about the minute clinic concept. I suspect that will change in the years to come.
