Flipping Health Care through Retail Clinics and Convenient Care Models

Book Description

Over time, a country’s healthcare system typically undergoes a number of developments as new demands emerge from the public and new legislation is passed from the government. These systems are composed of a number of interconnected parts, each one vital to the overall success of the system. Flipping Health Care through Retail Clinics and Convenient Care Models addresses the present state of the health system by focusing on current trends and future developments that could assist in delivering accessible and cost-effective medical care to the general public. Bringing together components of the present and future, this publication serves as an essential tool for students and researchers who want to develop a thorough understanding of the changing scope of the health industry in the public sphere.
