The Urgent Care Association has recently collaborated with Solv Health, a consumer-driven healthcare technology company, to feature UCA Accredited and Certified centers on Solv's national urgent care directory. As part of the joint effort, UCA is joining the Solv Data Connect program and will be syncing the full list of Certified and Accredited urgent care center locations with Solv's directory, which is viewed by 12 million visitors each year. Each Certified or Accredited clinic will have its designations clearly featured on their Solv clinic profile page, helping patients quickly identify leading same-day healthcare options.
"What we know for certain is that consumers want both quality and convenience when they are selecting a place of care for themselves and their families," said Heather Fernandez, co-founder and CEO of Solv. "We are excited to display the UCA Accreditation and Certification designations on Solv. Based on our data, when a patient finds a high-quality urgent care center on Solv, 97% of them visit that same location again."
“Increasing Urgent Care quality standards is a top priority for the Urgent Care Association,” says Laurel Stoimenoff, CEO of the Urgent Care Association. “Through our collaboration with Solv, urgent care centers now have a powerful way to broadcast their commitment to quality healthcare to the millions of patients who use Solv.”
When patients see the UCA Accreditation logo on a Solv clinic profile page, it designates that these centers have received dual Certification and Accreditation through the Urgent Care Association and they can rely on the quality of care and scope of services being delivered.
