Urgent Care is an important aspect of primary care with its main difference being the need for immediate evaluation and treatment. Much of what is treated in an emergency room today can be treated in the urgent care arena. Urgent care has grown rapidly in the past 5 years due to long wait times in the ERs, and the extended number of days primary care physician offices have to schedule a visit. Emed will be poised for the Urgent Care market by allowing walk in, non -appointment visits. It will also offer extended hours, digital X-ray imaging, and in-house medication dispensing. Most Urgent Care facilities do not treat chronic illnesses. Not only with Emed treat an urgent episode, we also have the ability to diagnose and treat ongoing medical concerns.
