Practice Velocity and Urgent Care Consultants are proud supporters of the third annual Pediatric Urgent Care Conference, being held March 29-31, 2017, in New Orleans.

This conference brings together nationally recognized experts in pediatric urgent care, general health care and business practice.  The objective is to improve the procedural skills of caregivers and provide a foundation for operational and business success.

Among the experts presenting at the conference is Practice Velocity Vice President Alan A. Ayers, MBA, MAcc, who will be presenting a lunch-and-learn on “Differentiation for Pediatric Urgent Care Operators.”  The session will be held on Friday, March 31, at 12:30pm in the Ballroom Gallery of the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Ayers’ session describes that in crowded markets with increasingly blurred lines between walk-in providers, it’s important for pediatric urgent care operators to differentiate their service offerings to emphasize speed, care, pediatric expertise, quality outcomes, and interconnectivity with primary care and specialists.  With “soccer moms” in particular, pediatric urgent care thrives to the extent it creates loyal “fans” who spur positive word-of-mouth, both in person and online.

Practice Velocity’s award-winning electronic health record supports pediatric urgent care with:

  • Designation of a parent/guardian historian for pediatric patients
  • Age-specific vitals and exceptions
  • Pediatric-suggested exam templates
  • Full ICD-10 code sets including separate code sets for pediatrics
  • Pre-calculated medication lists with pediatric dosing by weight

Practice Velocity’s partner, Urgent Care Consultants, supports pediatric urgent care entrepreneurs with start-up services including “Start-up Pro” which is a 1,500+ item workplan covering the entire process from business plan development and financing through site selection and build-out and operational planning including staffing models and policies and procedures.  For more information visit www.urgentcareconsultants.com.
