Retail Clinic and Urgent Care Patients Practice Preventative Healthcare more than Emergency Room Patients
According to the 2015 MARS Consumer Health Study, 26% of U.S. adults have received medical or health-related services at a Retail/In-Store Clinic, Emergency Room or an Urgent Care Center in the last year.
When compared to Urgent Care and Retail Clinic patients, Emergency Room patients are generally older, earn less and have poorer overall health. Retail Clinic and Urgent Care patients generally take more preventative healthcare measures than Emergency Room patients (e.g., annual check-ups, researching treatment options and receiving vaccinations).
