The Retail Health Clinic Market is Expected to Double in a Few Years. Customer Experience Must Be a Priority

 

Amid hospitals experiencing workforce shortages, the retail health clinic is gaining popularity for their ability to provide quality care to millions of patients. In fact, the retail clinic market, which stood at $2.05 billion last year, is expected to reach $4.22 billion by the year 2029. But as companies like Amazon enter the healthcare industry, what are some steps retail health clinics can take to improve customer experience?

Second, that their customer experience is a very good experience, enabled by technology that can allow appointment setting and patient education delivered to them in the retail setting. And equally important, the harmonization of the content and the care that’s gets delivered [is] delivered with the highest quality based on the best evidence.”
