“More people are going to urgent care clinics: A new study suggests that more people with minor health problems are seeking treatment at urgent care centers, rather than heading to the ER. Researchers looked at data on people insured by Aetna between 2008 and 2015. When it came to treatment for less acute conditions such as sore throats and minor injuries, visits to ERs fell 36 percent, while visits to other health care centers rose 140 percent. Use of retail clinics and telemedicine also rose, but still account for just a small slice of visits. Possible factors at play in the shift: More urgent care clinics are available, they have lower out-of-pocket costs, and their wait times might be shorter than at an ER.” – STATNews Morning Rounds
