The Efficient Billing Imperative

  Sponsor Message
"These findings suggest retail clinics do not trim medical spending, but instead may drive it up modestly because they encourage people to use more medical services. Retail clinics do offer benefits such as easier access to medical care, but the widely expected cost savings may not be realized."

-Dr. Ateev Mehrotra, associate professor at Harvard Medical School and adjunct researcher at the RAND Corporation
"By 2020, it's estimated 65 percent or so of large employers will have [an onsite health clinic], an increase from 50 percent today."
