ChristianaCare and GoHealth Urgent Care announce new partnership to develop largest urgent care network in Delaware

 

New state-wide partnership will bring unparalleled patient experiences to Delaware and surrounding communities

Wilmington, DE, Jan. 10, 2020 – ChristianaCare, one of the most dynamic health systems in the mid-Atlantic region, and GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the nation’s fastest-growing urgent care companies, today announced that they have entered into a new partnership to operate ChristianaCare’s five medical aid units and establish a network of new urgent care centers throughout Delaware and the surrounding areas.

ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care will become the preferred provider of urgent care services in Delaware and coordinate with ChristianaCare’s robust primary and specialty care services. The partnership combines ChristianaCare’s long-standing reputation for high-quality, integrated ambulatory health services and GoHealth Urgent Care’s industry-leading patient satisfaction ratings, consumer-focused technology and award-winning urgent care center design.

“This partnership will advance our ability to make a positive impact on the health of every person in every community we serve by increasing access to high-quality, affordable urgent care services,” said Janice E. Nevin, M.D., MPH, ChristianaCare’s president and CEO. “Partnering with GoHealth Urgent Care and leveraging its unique model, expertise and consumer focus enables us to offer greater convenience and provide the right care, at the right place and right time in the most cost-appropriate setting.”

ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care will convert ChristianaCare’s five existing medical aid units – in Newark, Glasgow, Middletown and Smyrna – to GoHealth Urgent Care’s integrated operating model and design and will build a number of additional new urgent care centers throughout Delaware and surrounding areas over the next several years.

“We are thrilled to partner with ChristianaCare to deliver seamless, personalized and deeply connected care to Delaware and surrounding communities,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “We will set a new standard for on-demand care in the region, deliver value to consumers, employers and payors, and collaboratively champion population health initiatives and value-based care.”

The ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will provide a more accessible, convenient and comfortable alternative to costlier, more time-consuming emergency department visits for everyday illnesses and non-life-threatening injuries, such as colds, flu, fever, asthma, allergies, emphysema, minor skin lacerations, cuts, burns, urinary tract infections, sports injuries, fractures, sprains and strains. The centers will have on-site laboratory and X-ray services.

ChristianaCare-GoHealth Urgent Care patients will be able to walk in or go online to check wait times, pre-register and reserve their place in line, ensuring that high-quality clinical providers will see them even more quickly. Patient visits are expected to average less than an hour.

New in-depth study highlights successful strategies in urgent care
Meeting consumer demand is the top driver of urgent care

 

OCTOBER 23, 2019 – The Health Management Academy (The Academy), with support from GoHealth Urgent Care—an independent partnership-focused urgent care organization—has released an in-depth study entitled “Thriving in the Urgent Care Market: The Leading Health System Perspective”. Recognizing the steady growth in urgent care across the provider market over the past 5 years, The Academy and GoHealth Urgent Care sought to better understand how Leading Health Systems (LHS) are pursuing innovation in the urgent care market, and the extent to which they have deployed strategies to ensure long-term success in a more competitive, consumer-driven environment.

The Academy conducted a series of surveys and qualitative interviews with 25 C-suite executives of the nation’s top health systems, which represent an average of $4.4B net patient revenue per health system and a collective network of 432 hospitals. Through these, the Academy uncovered LHS strategies and key drivers for investing in urgent care, the implementation challenges they face, and how they measure success.

“With urgent care increasingly becoming a key component of the care delivery network, LHS have been primarily focused on expanding their market footprint and access to services.” said Sanjula Jain, Ph.D., Head of The Academy’s Research and Advisory Practice. “Whereas the barriers to entry are low, the barriers to success are much greater. We found that LHS most effective in disrupting the urgent care market are organizations that integrate non-traditional services in a targeted fashion to meet the unique needs of different consumer segments.”

Key findings include:

  • 74% of LHS are extremely likely to grow their urgent care footprints over the next 5 years, yet only 11% are thriving in the urgent care market and are prepared to compete with new market entrants long-term;
  • 82% of LHS find meeting consumer demand and creating a better patient experience a top driver of growth;
  • 76% of LHS find capitalizing on the unique opportunity to capture new patient volume through their urgent care networks a top driver of growth; and
  • The majority of LHS leverage their urgent care networks as an opportunity to increase connectivity of care and improve long-term outcomes for their patient populations.

“More and more health systems are recognizing the need to meet rising consumer demands in an increasingly competitive on-demand care marketplace. Those at the forefront are evolving their urgent care strategies in order to ensure future growth and success,” said Todd Latz, CEO, GoHealth Urgent Care. “The Academy’s findings support what we have experienced in our existing health system partnerships. A retail-based approach to urgent care that puts consumers first and is supported by deep integration, digital consumer engagement tools and a focus on unparalleled experiences drives market differentiation, new patient growth and long-term patient loyalty.”

GoHealth Urgent Care and Force Diagnostics Join Together to Make Life Insurance Health Screenings Effortless

 

Rather than a Medical Professional Making a Visit to the Home or Office, Consumers Will Be Able to Visit a Conveniently-Located GoHealth Urgent Care Center for Life Insurance Policy Health Screenings

 

ATLANTA and CHICAGO (April 29, 2019) – GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest-growing urgent care companies, and Force Diagnostics, a clinical underwriting data services company, today announced a first-of-its-kind partnership that aligns urgent care centers with life insurance applicants requiring a pre-policy exam as part of the clinical underwriting process. 

GoHealth Urgent Care and Force Diagnostics will launch first in the Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care market in Northern California in May 2019, followed by additional geographies such as Portland, Oregon and the New York metro area later in 2019. 

The current, antiquated model of life insurance pre-policy clinical underwriting usually requires a medical professional to come to a consumer’s home or place of business to administer an exam, along with taking labs and other vitals. This home or office visit can often be intrusive and inconvenient for the applicant. In addition, clinical underwriting is traditionally a time intensive process, that can take up to 60 days from start to finish. With Force Diagnostics’ ClinicsNow! software, applicants can now complete all the required steps in 48 hours or less at GoHealth Urgent Care centers. 

GoHealth Urgent Care and Force Diagnostics are disrupting the current model by connecting two disparate ecosystems – the life insurance industry and the care-on-demand urgent care industry – dramatically improving the customer experience while significantly condensing the timeframe for approval. 

“Innovation has always been a part of our DNA at GoHealth Urgent Care. This new partnership with Force Diagnostics underscores our customer focus and commitment to removing friction from healthcare experiences,” said Boyd Faust, Chief Strategy Officer for GoHealth. “Our urgent care centers are conveniently located where consumers live, work and play, and we pride ourselves on delivering unparalleled experiences, not just to injured or sick patients, but now to life insurance applicants as well.”

“With over 5 million life insurance applications in need of clinical examination processed in the U.S. each year, our partnership with GoHealth Urgent Care has the potential to change the industry,” said Scott Filer, CEO of Force Diagnostics. “We’re thrilled to partner with GoHealth Urgent Care, as we work together to create an innovative system that will modernize the life insurance process; benefitting both life insurance companies and their consumers.”
