Instructions: Part 1: Urgent Care Pediatircs
1. Read the following scenario:
Our practice, KiddieCARE Pediatrics has experienced a 10% decrease in patient visits compared to last year.
As administrator, you have done an analysis, and found that urgent care centers are having an impact on your number of patients. Rather than wait until the next morning, our patients are electing to be seen that evening in one of these urgent care locations.
Specifically, Minute Clinic in CVS, Patient First* , and a competing practice (WeeCARE Pediatrics) is offering evening hours, and have independent outside contracted physicians (not their own physicians refuse to work evenings! ) during evening (6pm to 10pm) hours, Monday through Friday. (*please research Patient First)
Your feel that KiddieCARE must offer evening hours (to be branded Nighttime Kids), and as a result are planning to present a marketing plan for the service to the physicians. The key difference of the service we will be offering, is that plans call for our own physicians to provide the evening coverage.
