3 Decades of Urgent Care, Family Medicine and Occupational Medicine Experience to guide you
I’ve owned and operated a couple dozen urgent care, family medicine and occupational medical centers since 1984. After I sold my last centers to Concentra, I spent the better part of a year training and mentoring physicians, nurse practitioners and PAs at Concentra locations all over the northeast in the ways of Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine.
It occurred to me that there was a body of knowledge related to these subjects that is not readily available nor consistently applied. Regulatory issues in the workplace are constantly creating new rules that affect how we care for our OccMed patients. Health care reform and the Affordable Care Act pose questions about the respective roles and responsibilities of urgent care centers in relation to primary care physicians, ERs, hospitals, specialists and of course health care payers.
