Retail Clinic: Rise from Obscurity


Estimated Read Time: 4 Minutes


In a time where convenience and speed reign, many consumers are turning away from the slow-moving processes of primary care physicians (PCPs) and challenging their foothold on routine healthcare. This industry shift is prompting the birth of new alternatives and retail clinics are taking advantage of this by making receiving healthcare easier than ever.

How? By putting themselves where consumers already are. Retail clinics are typically located in pharmacies or supermarkets and offer walk-in services for everyday health and common conditions. These convenient clinics are a fairly new player in this industry’s game and their growing popularity led us to wonder what the future holds for this retail-based provider. They’re off to a running start, but major improvements may be needed in order for the public to take full advantage.
