"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Retail clinics have emerged as a significant cost-effective innovation in delivering acute and preventive care to the patients. Retail clinics are those clinics which deliver preliminary healthcare services in retail stores, supermarkets, and departmental stores. The retail clinic consists of a registration desk, a restroom, a waiting area, one or two exam rooms, and one small reception desk.
Along with the treatment of injuries and illness such as sore throat, allergies, fever, cough, cold, flu, and infections, retail clinics offer pre-diagnostic services such as blood sample collection, health screenings, physical exams, vaccinations, and other preventive care measures. The retail clinics also referred to as convenient care clinics have proved to be an essential tool in providing dramatical relief to overcrowded hospitals and emergency centers in the current healthcare scenario.
