ucaoapartnerUCAOA – Some partnerships are meant to be; like Practice Velocity and UCAOA. Practice Velocity has been a Platinum Partner with the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA) since its inception. UCAOA was founded in 2004 by seven urgent care leaders to fill a need in the professional field for an association that existed not only to encourage and facilitate the development and success of urgent care centers, but to do so as a representative of its members. The Association serves an international field, joining together the more than 9,000 urgent care centers in the U.S., and additional centers across the world including Australia, Canada, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Mexico and New Zealand. UCAOA represents more than 3,200 individual and practice members. The organization provides educational programs in clinical care and practice management, sponsors the first urgent care Fellowship, funds groundbreaking industry research, publishes the monthly Journal of Urgent Care Medicine and maintains an active Members Only Online Forum for daily exchange of best practices.
