Robert G Graw, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Righttime Medical Care, shared his expertise with colleagues at the Urgent Care Association of America’s (UCAOA) Fall Conference in Glendale, Arizona last weekend. The event attracted hundreds of urgent care professional from throughout the United States wishing to advance their skills and network with colleagues.
The implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act (also referred to as Obamacare) will likely change the delivery of healthcare in a variety of ways. How will it affect Urgent Care? The title of Dr. Graw’s presentation, “Partnering Effectively From Network Participation to Data Flow: Post-Health Reform Competitive Landscape and Where will Urgent Care Fit In?” addressed some of those issues. Over the past 25 years Dr. Graw has been a pioneer in delivering Urgent Care in Maryland. Starting with a single location in Annapolis, the practice founded by physicians has expanded to ten facilities serving Anne Arundel, Frederick, Howard, and Montgomery counties and is still growing. In his remarks, Dr. Graw urged his colleagues to cooperate and integrate with community partners and to learn who will be affected by health care reform in the coming years. “If you fail to remain aware of what is happening in today’s dynamic healthcare environment,” says Dr. Graw, “you won’t be able to fully optimize opportunities to improve the quality and delivery of Urgent Care.”
Righttime Medical Care, founded in 1989, provides extended-hour access for illnesses and injuries beyond the scope or availability of typical primary care practices or retail clinics. Their ten locations are open seven days a week, 365 days a year from 7:00 a.m. until midnight. They accept payments from most insurers and you can telephone, go online 24 hours a day or walk-in during business hours to make an appointment.
By providing urgent care, Righttime helps improve a patient’s access to care as well as the delivery of superior health care in the community. By attending UCAOA’s convention and sharing their knowledge with colleagues, Righttime once again reaffirmed its dedication to improving the health care system.
