Retail clinics: boon or bane for healthcare? While payors and providers examine the model, large numbers of satisfied consumers have already voted with their feet, flocking to the 1,000-plus retail clinics in the United States and sampling from their narrow menu of medical services.

Retail Clinics 1.0: Selling the Care Model to Payors and Providers offers advice from the retail clinic trenches, where many health plans already reimburse for services dispensed at retail clinics and providers are partnering with or launching their own retail or "convenience" clinics.

This 40-page special report will guide health plans and healthcare providers in their interactions with retail clinics. Helping to assess retail clinics' role in the healthcare continuum are two organizations that are exploring how these clinics fit into their strategic plan. Dr. Steven Goldberg, corporate medical director at Humana, describes the changes in the healthcare landscape that resulted in the retail clinic opportunity and discusses Humana's decision to include MinuteClinic (a national chain of retail clinics) in its provider network.

Offering the provider perspective is Dr. Thomas N. Atkins, medical director of Sutter Express Care, a drugstore-based chain of medical clinics launched by Sutter Health, a network of hospitals and doctors serving Northern California. Dr. Atkins shares Sutter Health's retail clinic launch plan and the business and clinical lessons Sutter Health is learning from the experience.
