The Discussions tab in UConnect is your place to poll a large audience of urgent care professionals with your burning questions ... and to be a resource to your fellow members when they have something to ask. In July, we saw several interesting conversations take place in the following Discussion groups:
  • Billing & Coding
  • Starting a New Urgent Care Center
  • Urgent Care Owners
  • Urgent Care Practice Managers
Whew! That's a lot of dialogue ... and some of the questions are still in need of an answer or opinion. Login to be part of the Discussions — or to get informed on what your peers are talking about!

If you're a member of UCAOA and haven't checked out UConnect, what are you waiting for? There's no excuse for missing out, the site is part of your member benefits and logging in is easy. Take a look!
