Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The development of a viable business plan: Implementation of mobile clinics at Cypress Health Medical Group for Medicare Advantage patients
by Tsoi, Lina, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 61; 1594377
Abstract (Summary)

The healthcare industry is highly complex and encompasses many layers of multidisciplinary functions. The vast majority of patients have issues regarding access and affordability to medical services in the United States, but a greater concerning issue involves the accessibility of primary care physicians. With the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), millions of formerly uninsured men and women will now have access to health care, which means that the already existing shortage of physicians will continue to increase. Patients who are already experiencing issues with the accessibility to primary care physicians will experience even more barriers now that there are millions who have been added to the pool of needing services.

The objective of this study is to complete a comprehensive review of patient access to primary care physicians and healthcare services and to construct a business plan by creating mobile clinics that should help address these concerns. The aim for these mobile clinics is to reduce the gaps in care and to increase high volume of member engagement, increase convenience and patient satisfaction, and offer healthcare services that are affordable. Mobile clinics will also offer flexibility and customizations that will work for the patient's lifestyle.
