Urgent Care Centers Crucial in Hospital and Radiology Canvasses
Hospital and radiology canvasses develop a claimant’s undisclosed prior medical treatment. In the past, ICU Investigations has routinely included in-patient and out-patient admissions, emergency room visits, as well as radiology facility visits to include x-rays, MRIs, and CT-scans with much success. Now with URGENT CARE CENTERS making a large impact on the healthcare industry and in our daily lives (our data has shown that in certain populated areas, there are now 2-4 urgent care locations within 5 miles of the home), the staff at ICU Investigations has proactively decided to include urgent care facilities in our routine hospital and radiology canvasses to better serve our clients and add value at no additional charge! Urgent care facilities serve patients unable to wait for an appointment at their primary care physician, but are not necessarily ill and/or injured enough to make an emergency room visit. Here’s a list of conditions that standard urgent care facilities have the capability to treat:
Injuries (breaks, sprains, strains, cuts, minor burns)
General wellness visits
In addition to diagnosing and treating the above listed conditions, standard urgent cares also provide basic imaging with X-Rays. We are certainly not replacing hospitals and radiology facilities in our canvasses; we are using urgent care facilities to supplement them! If the injury was not severe enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room, the next step for fast relief is an urgent care facility, which has now become a staple in one of ICU Investigations most result-driven services.
