I am at the Retail Based Health Clinics Congress in Las Vegas. I tweeted yesterday's proceedings (tomorrow's should be available at the same link) — that is, except for my own presentation, which is posted below for your viewing pleasure. There has been an interesting exploration of the range of services and models currently being provided and that may be provided in the future at retail clinics. To my mind, the key questions are: How can retail clinics be integrated into health care provider networks? and What sorts of chronic care services may be provided in the retail clinic setting? There are some real synergies to explore.
