by Komolafe, Samuel Babajide, M.S./M.P.H., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 64; 22621546
Abstract (Summary)

Healthcare in America has evolved into a fascinating battle between primary care and the emergency department. Primary care has the potential to designate appointments however, these often take place too far in the future to be of any relevant assistance to many Americans. The option of same-day access to the emergency department becomes a hopeful alternative despite outrageous wait times. Urgency Medical is a new business venture intended to fill the gap widened by the polarization of the emergency department and primary care. Urgency Medical successfully adapts the Urgent Care model by expanding the ability to schedule appointments, extending hours of operation and specialty services, and dispensing medication. Urgency Medical prides itself on offering affordable access to licensed professional staff, state of the art facilities, and exemplary healthcare. This business plan outlines Urgency Medical’s current and future market, feasibility, legal and regulatory requirements, and financial analysis.
