Primary Health Access
Health In Motion Network™ is contracted nationally with thousands of Urgent Care Centers, Retail Clinics, Primary Care Providers, Pharmacies, Specialists operating on one connected health network – Improving health in the communities they serve.
The Current Situation
Systems of the future will continue to move away from the acute care hospital setting into more accessible settings with more understandable pricing. Urgent care is one intergenerational example of this trend.
A recent study with patients aged 18 to 80 revealed when they need to access healthcare, 43 percent prefer an urgent care or retail clinic location, rather than heading to their primary care clinician.

Urgent care centers provide many of the functional elements of healthcare value; e.g. saves time, simplifies, reduces effort, avoids hassles and even works to reduce patient anxiety. Armed with a smart phone, many patients can now quickly access urgent care clinics near them to address any symptoms they are facing and to get the care—any related medications—they need and require.
In today’s world, where the patient now controls their access to—and management of—their healthcare, the “rules” for healthcare delivery are different than they were, say, 20 years ago.
Previously, the patient became ill, they went to their doctor, they were evaluated, diagnosed and ultimately treated. That was it.
Today, let’s consider health management as an “ecosystem;” i.e. a “network” or a “system” of care that surrounds the patient. There’s not only a care team of clinicians surrounding the patient, there is now a “web” of technology, resources and tools that come along with a patient’s care plan, too.
These new ecosystems stretch beyond the bricks and mortar of a former/traditional doctor’s office. To leverage advances in technology for better health outcomes—and to meet the expectations of today’s healthcare consumer—this ecosystem must integrate and incorporate smart phones, home devices and services, telemedicine and many other modern technologies.
By moving toward the healthcare model of today and tomorrow, the Health In Motion Network™ connects the patient to a relationship of total, comprehensive care—be it a person, technology or even their smart phone.
Just as today’s technological world evolves and changes with every second, we are continuing to design, develop and enhance upon these integrated experiences in order to make them ideal, seamless and intuitive… all for the patient.
It’s our goal to strengthen and enhance the opportunities for and access to healthcare in your community.
