How to Incorporate a Strategic Business Model to Ensure a Viable Urgent Care Center
Over time, the urgent care industry has evolved to include multiple business models that vary relative to the market, staffing, setting, client base and services. Assessing a target market and defining it in terms of which model is best and creating a strategic business plan to ground the project with the development team is critical.
In this workshop, we will review the model variants and the means of either assessing their viability given the target market(s) and explore secondary service lines that could enhance the performance of an urgent care center. The workshop will also address how to strategically position yourself to participate or not to participate with insurance plans.
