ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical services offered in the local CVS and WalMart? It's no longer just an idea, it's a reality. Kalorama Information will conduct a complementary webinar on the topic of Retail Clinics, Present and Future on Thursday October 20th at 2PM. Retail clinics are medical venues located entirely in retail settings such as a grocery store or drugstore. Since their inception they have attracted curiosity, some controversy and definite interest from retailers. The healthcare market researcher has published several reports on retail clinics going back to 2007. Kalorama Information's webinar is based on its recent report, Retail Clinics 2016, a market research study of the nascent industry. Those interested can sign up at http://content.marketresearch.com/retail-clinics-present-and-future-webinar-registration.
"There's a growing interest in these alternative healthcare venues not only from hospital administrators and physicians, but also retailers and suppliers such as IVD companies and pharmaceutical companies," said Kalorama Publisher Bruce Carlson, who will be presenting. "In this webinar we will share some our findings. It is an open webinar, and there is no cost."
The retail clinic topic has a renewed importance as store locations increased by more than a third in the past five years and major chains have embraced the concept. Topics discussed include:
- What is a Retail Clinic? Size, Locale, Hours
- Growth in Number of Retail Clinics Locations
- Trends in Visits, Earnings, Customer Satisfaction
- Impact on Physician Practice
- Clinic Effect on Retail Host's Business
- What Clinics Should Be Doing
- What Retail Clinics Mean for Pharma, IVD.
Kalorama Information aims to inform industry opinion on retail clinics including the services that they can provide and where they do and do not likely compete with urgent care centers and physician practices. The presentation will include results from Kalorama's past surveys of consumers who have visited a retail clinic. Those attending the webinar will receive a Power Point with information about retail clinics.
