UCAOA Membership Just Keeps Getting Better: Seize the Opportunities & Resources

Posted By Laurel Stoimenoff, PT, CHC, Monday, September 18, 2017

Amid all the industry changes and uncertainties, healthcare leaders are taking full advantage of any and all resources available to them to better navigate the complexities of the evolving healthcare landscape.  Urgent care clinicians, centers, practice managers and vendors are looking to improve performance and differentiate their organizations from the competition.

The Urgent Care Association of America is the established voice of the urgent care industry, actively advocating for clinicians and centers at the state and national level, while providing thought leadership to media, the public and other colleagues in healthcare. One simple way to rise up in the industry is by joining UCAOA and optimizing all of the benefits that come with membership.

Why Choose UCAOA?
Any membership to a professional healthcare organization comes with its perks. What sets UCAOA apart is the specific focus on the urgent care industry in all educational programs, professional opportunities, business networks and management resources. As host to two of the most comprehensive and well-attended urgent care conferences each year and its ongoing education programs, UCAOA brings together industry leaders to share research and brainstorm with colleagues on how to advance the industry as well as the performance of the individual center.

By joining UCAOA, urgent care professionals can stay up-to-date on the latest trends and best practices in the industry, connect with colleagues and thought leaders, reach key decision-makers and strengthen their bottom lines. UCAOA continually creates exclusive resources and opportunities for members to meet the specific needs of the on-demand medical practice.

For Clinicians
Individual clinician members have access to an extensive list of CME opportunities and education programs – which include both in-person events and online courses to ensure accessibility for any schedule. These resources are designed by both urgent care and specialty leaders for urgent care professionals, providing unique industry insights that help elevate skills and advance your career.

For Centers
Urgent care center members can learn how to improve negotiations and contracts with payers through a growing library of data and best practices found on the Payer Relations page of the UCAOA website. Members can review the latest tips from industry thought leaders on how to demonstrate the value of urgent care to payers. In fact, many payers are calling on centers to achieve urgent care-specific accreditation or certification. UCAOA can help you succeed through a variety of targeted resources.

For Practice Managers
Practice manager members can improve their recruitment and retention efforts with a discounted rate for posting job opportunities on the UCAOA Career Center, an urgent care-specific jobs center. In addition, practice managers can utilize a growing number of free or discounted industry resources and toolkits that provide instant assistance in areas such as marketing and staffing. Look for the policy of the month and UC Prac*toids to benchmark or enhance your center’s performance and stay current with the mercurial state of healthcare.

For Vendors/Suppliers
Vendor members enjoy priority access to urgent care centers across the country through sponsorship opportunities at the leading industry events, as well as direct list mail rental options. Through the list rental program, vendors can educate the industry by sharing their data and resources via mail or email, or showcase the latest products and/or services available that are designed to enhance urgent care operations. They get their name in front of the targeted audience, which drives efficiency and results.

These are just a few of the benefits enjoyed by UCAOA members. For a complete list of benefits available with membership, please visit the UCAOA website’s Members section: ucaoa.org/benefits. We cannot advocate and advance our important agenda without your support. We do our work, so you can focus on yours!
