Right now, the health care industry is front and center. The world is still grappling with the pandemic, and most people are paying closer attention to how they’re feeling physically and what their bodies may or may not need. Regardless of what’s going on in the world, maintaining one’s health is essential, and the health care industry is responding to trends that are making it easier for people to do that. Here, we’ll look at a few of them and how American Family Care (AFC) fits in.
Occupational Medicine Matters
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a real emphasis today on testing not just for the virus but also for other illnesses and issues. This concern is especially true of employers, who are in the unique position of having to help not only their employees stay healthy, but their customers, clients, and the public as well.
With your AFC urgent care center in the neighborhood, you’ll be able to help your business community stay committed to helping their current, and future employees remain healthy and safe. We offer a suite of robust occupational medical services that include:
- Medical surveillance exams
- Lab testing
- Return-to-work exams
- Wellness physical exams
- Pulmonary function testing
- Vision screening
- And much more!
The health care industry is an expansive one, and AFC’s occupational medicine is some of the very best available!
Telemedicine Makes it Easier
Perhaps no health care industry trend is more important and more in the news right now than telemedicine. Many communities still have social distancing guidelines in place that mean seeing a practitioner face to face is difficult or nearly impossible. Fortunately for those neighborhoods with an AFC urgent care center in them, patients can access our TeleCare portal that allows for:
- Quick and easy access to the AFC TeleCare staff
- Assessments by qualified providers who’ll conduct evaluations and offer or arrange the healthcare services indicated
- Screening for COVID-19 or other possible infections and direction to the nearest AFC location or other health care facilityas needed
AFC TeleCare is now operational system-wide and is making significant differences to thousands of communities across the country. Your AFC franchise could be one of them!
Millennials Mean Business
Millennials are a highlyinfluential demographic that is impacting the health care industry in meaningful ways. These consumers place a real premium on convenience and speed, and AFC clinics are defined by both!
In general, urgent care centers like ours can see most patients in less than 30 minutes, and Millennials are taking note. With nearly one-quarter of them reporting they haven’t visited a primary care physician in five years or more, citing convenience as the reason, your AFC center is poised to leverage this important group. All our centers feature flexible hours, accept most major insurance, and feature a suite of non-emergency medical services that meets a variety of needs. It just doesn’t get simpler or more convenient than that!
