URGENT CARE INTEGRATED NETWORK: IS NOW OFFERING COMPLIMENTARY MEMBERSHIP TO ALL INDEPENDENT URGENT CARE CENTERS
Scottsdale, AZ – July 1, 2013 – John Shufeldt, MD, Urgent Care Industry thought leader today announced Urgent Care Integrated Network (UCIN) membership is free to all independent urgent care centers.
UCIN specifically serves the purchasing and contracting needs of independent urgent care practices. As the cost of doing business continues to escalate, independent practices now can enjoy access to a scalable solution that heretofore only large corporate enterprises or hospital systems were able to achieve. An array of products and services provide the tools every urgent care enterprise needs to operate both efficiently and profitably.
“Today, the urgent care business is much different than it used to be. Not long ago, reimbursements were fair and supported the reasonable profitability of centers. That is decidedly not the case today. Independent urgent care centers are being severely squeezed by payers, large competitors and hospital systems.” said John Shufeldt, MD, JD, MBA, UNCIN’s Founder and CEO “Single specialty networks and group purchasing organizations allow independent centers to compete on a level playing field with the corporate giants. This was the catalyst for the formation of the Urgent Care Integrated Network,” said Shufeldt,
Dr. Shufeldts’ twenty plus years in urgent care practice ownership, management and consulting has given him a unique insight and a wealth of knowledge about an important segment of the nation’s health care delivery system. Membership in UCIN provides a gateway for Urgent Care practices to purchase at a discount, products and services that include Medical and Pharmaceuticals supplies, Radiological Equipment, Malpractice Insurance, Virtual Medical Care, Urgent Care Consulting, HR Services and much more.
UCIN is an attractive option that will save centers thousands of dollars annually using a comprehensive suite of clinical, legal and financial services supported by a team of experienced professionals. Membership applications are available on the network’s website at www.ucinet.org.
Additionally, UCIN partners with vendors who guarantee the quality of their products and services and who have extensive experience in the urgent care space. UCIN is committed to assisting its members operate more efficiently and at less cost.
Independent urgent care practices can find more information and sign up for free membership directly on the network’s website at www.ucinet.org.
