Fast Facts About Urgent Care (Parents Magazine, 12/13)

Update: Parents magazine has provided a direct link to the article.  Head there!

I may get a take-down notice for the following attachment, but I’ll do my best to provide full citation and credit. I think this message is too important to hide behind a pay-only site.

Below is a PDF scan from the December 2013 issue of Parents magazine featuring an article from Dr. Ari Brown (bravo for penning it) about the pros and – often – cons of using an Urgent Care Clinic.  It’s not that they are bad, per se, but when they are used as a first resort, instead of relying on your pediatric-expert medical home…well, trouble starts.

Plus, I am obviously impressed by the pediatric software company that was able to gather data to share about pediatric after-hours usage.

    Hello Chip,

    It’s probably at the top of your list if you are offering urgent care services or advising patients on how to get the most out of their visit. Healthline wants to simplify this for you with our recent article:

    7 Ways to Make Your Next Urgent Care Visit a Little Better (

    In it, we source information from our in-depth State of Care ( report which sheds line on recent research indicating who is using urgent care and why. That information is distilled in our Urgent Care ( article to make it simple to share with urgent care patients, practitioners, and educators.

    I hope you find the article relevant and useful for your purposes and those of your clients.

    In health,
