"Retail clinics are a difficult model to make work... It's a highly seasonal business, with the busiest times during the winter months. Most of the clinics barely break even. Initially, retailers liked them because they brought people into the stores, helped them differentiate themselves, and drove prescription sales. But some of these retailers have decided it's not worth it and that their capital would be better spent in other areas."
-Thomas Charland, CEO of Merchant Medicine
"71.9% of MinuteClinic visits met or exceeded HEDIS quality benchmarks in 2014."
