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.”

Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Announces Opening of New Urgent Care Centers in Winston-Salem and Clemmons, N.C.

 

New centers provide convenient, high quality and patient-focused healthcare to more North Carolinians

 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (February 11, 2019) – GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest-growing urgent care companies, and Novant Health, a four-state integrated network of physician clinics, outpatient facilities and hospitals, announced today they have opened two new locations, one in Winston-Salem and one in Clemmons, N.C. These new centers join Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care’s large network of urgent care centers across North Carolina, providing local communities with world-class urgent care services and unparalleled patient experiences.

 

“We are excited to open the doors of our new state-of-the-art centers to families in Winston-Salem and Clemmons,” said Kirsten P. Jones, market president of Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “Patients will be able to experience our consumer-oriented focus and care firsthand in these award-winning facilities. We strive to make our patients’ visits as effortless as possible, including access to same-day or next-day care from Novant Health specialists and other high-quality caregivers when needed.”

 

With today’s openings, the Novant Health-GoHealth footprint has expanded to 10 centers in North Carolina, including 5 centers in greater Winston-Salem. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care plans to continue to open a number of new and renovated centers in the greater Charlotte area over the next 12-18 months, with continued expansion into 2020 and beyond.

 

The Winston-Salem urgent care center is located at 50-C Miller Street, and the Clemmons urgent care center is located at 3163 Gammon Lane. Both centers are open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, and started seeing patients today.

 

“The Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care partnership combines the remarkable care that Novant Health has long been known for with GoHealth Urgent Care’s innovative, consumer-focused approach to urgent care. This partnership enables a more personalized and deeply connected care experience, complete with integrated electronic medical records and unmatched online check-in and pre-registration tools,” said Stephen Motew, M.D., president of Novant Health’s Greater Winston-Salem market. “Our patients in Winston-Salem and Clemmons will be among the first in North Carolina to experience this innovative approach to urgent care in a comfortable setting that prioritizes their health and their convenience.”

 

Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers serve as a more convenient and comfortable after-hours alternative to costlier, more time-consuming emergency room visits. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers are available to patients with everyday illnesses and non-life threatening injuries such as colds, flu, fever, asthma, allergies, minor skin lacerations, cuts, burns, urinary tract infections, sports injuries, fractures, sprains and strains. Patients who seek medical treatment at Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers can conveniently check-in online or just walk in to receive quick and caring service. All Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers offer on-site laboratory and X-ray services. Current Novant Health patients will enjoy the same integrated electronic health record, with full access to Novant Health’s online portal, MyChart, as they do throughout the Novant Health network. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care is in network with most commercial insurance plans, and accepts Medicare and Medicaid.

 

The Winston-Salem urgent care center and Clemmons urgent care center will be hosting grand opening ceremonies featuring speakers from Novant Health and GoHealth Urgent Care, a ribbon cutting, tours and refreshments. The 3163 Gammon Lane Clemmons urgent care event will take place on February 19th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and the 50-C Miller St. West Highland urgent care event will take place on February 20th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The media is invited to attend the events.

Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care Announces Opening of New Urgent Care Center in Torrington, Conn.  

 

Newly constructed Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center will replace Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s former urgent care walk-in center, less than a mile away

 

TORRINGTON, Conn. (January 14, 2019) – GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest growing urgent care companies, together with its partner Hartford HealthCare, Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network and affiliate of Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH), today announced the opening of the newly constructed Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center in Torrington, Conn.  

 

Open as of today, the new Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center is located at The Shops at Sky Top at 996 East Main Street in Torrington, less than a mile away from CHH’s former urgent care walk-in center at 1598 East Main Street, which closed its operations on January 13th. All patients in need of urgent care services should visit the new Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center.

 

“We are thrilled to open our first Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center to patients in Torrington, further expanding our partnership in Connecticut with Hartford HealthCare,” said Sarah Arora, northeast regional president of GoHealth Urgent Care. “We remain committed to our mission of providing unparalleled experiences and high-quality urgent care to people in places where they live and work, and we look forward to bringing this same level of care to the families of Northwest Connecticut.”

 

With this new center now open in Torrington, Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care’s network of urgent care centers across Connecticut has expanded to 16 locations. In addition, Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care plans to open a new center at Corbin’s Corner in West Hartford in early February.

 

“We want to thank all of the staff and providers of the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital walk-in center over the years for their dedicated work and support in providing a critical healthcare option to local patients. The announced changes and enhancements to the hospital’s urgent care services are part of a larger strategy for Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, the Northwest Region and across the Hartford HealthCare System,” said Dan McIntyre, senior vice president of Hartford HealthCare Northwest Region. “Our partnership with GoHealth Urgent Care continues to enable us to serve patients right here in our community.”

 

The new Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care center in Torrington will offer the same convenient services – onsite laboratory and X-rays, online check-in, electronic medical record integration, same day/walk-in visits and short wait times – as the CHH urgent care walk-in center. The new center will also provide virtual visits with a Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care provider via a mobile device, tablet or computer from wherever a patient is located in Connecticut. All Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care centers offer expanded hours and are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at least from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, including holidays.

Novant Health partnership to bring new urgent-care centers to Charlotte

Novant Health and GoHealth Urgent Care are partnering to bring at least 15 urgent-care facilities to the Charlotte and Winston-Salem markets.

The first of these facilities is scheduled to open in Winston-Salem in early 2019, followed by new and renovated locations in the Charlotte region over the next year to year and a half.

The Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will treat minor ailments, such as cuts, urinary tract infections, asthma and muscle sprains. Patients can check in online or walk in, and as with Novant locations currently open, they have access to the online portal, MyChart. The urgent-care centers will also have on-site laboratories and X-ray capabilities.

“This new consumer-focused health care concept will allow us to reach more patients and better meet their needs," says Carl Armato, president and chief executive officer of Novant Health, which is headquartered in Winston-Salem.

Novant currently operates 19 urgent-care locations in the Charlotte region. It also operates nine Express Care sites here — a more low-cost, retail-style form of care.

The first locations locally to transition into partnership facilities are:

  • 445 S. Kings Drive in midtown (current UC location)
  • 9600 E. Independence Blvd. in Matthews (current UC location)
  • 8450 Park Road in Quail Hollow (current UC location)
  • 15235 John J. Delaney Drive in Ballantyne (current Express Care location)

Novant declined to give details on how the spaces will be upfitted.

The partnership with Novant brings GoHealth into the Southeast market. Founded by Access Clinical Partners in mid-2014, GoHealth has facilities in California, Connecticut, Missouri, New York, Oregon and Washington. GoHealth partners with major health systems in these states, including Legacy Health, based in the Portland-Vancouver area, and Dignity Health of California. 

Novant is the seventh-largest employer in Charlotte with about 9,700 employees.
