Retail Clinics Continue to Expand

Medicine is too bureaucratic, tied up in red tape from both insurance companies and government agencies. Some medical professionals and companies are exploring ways to make medicine less bureaucratic and more responsive to patients. One method is the retail health clinic, such as the kinds that you find in supermarkets, drug stores, and department stores.

Retail Healthcare News chronicles these developments. You’ll find stories, for example, of new clinics at Wal-mart and Jewel-Osco, as well as new tests and even some of the work required to open a new clinic.

These clinics won’t fill more than a niche role, but then again, human wants and needs are incredibly varied.
