UCIN Explosive Growth

I am convinced that our membership will continue to expand in the months and years ahead and that they will profitably thrive in the communities they serve. CEO, John Shufeldt MD, JD, MBA, FACEP

Urgent Care Integrated Network (UCInet.org), a group purchasing organization that negotiates and manages contracts with vendors for medical products and services on behalf of its members, is experiencing explosive growth due to its vendor partnerships and their impressive suite of products and services.

Founded in early 2013, UCIN effectively addresses the twin challenges every independent urgent care practice faces: 1. Lack of economy-of-scale to secure lower cost products and services; 2. Lower reimbursement due to lack of negotiating power with insurance companies.

UCIN uses its buying power to negotiate services and products with vendors at lower rates than members can obtain individually. UCIN also requires that vendors guarantee the quality of their products and services and who have extensive experience in the urgent care space.

Current UCIN offerings:

  • Medical Supplies and Pharmaceuticals
  • Real Time Radiology Interpretations and Over Reads
  • Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Practice Management
  • Drug Dispensing Set-up and Consulting
  • Telemedicine – Virtual Patient Care Portal and Patient Recruitment Tool
  • Laboratory Set-up and Consulting
  • Targeted Urgent Care Directory and Search Engine

  • Bio-hazard and Medical Waste Disposal
  • DME and Consignment
  • Patient Data Management Services
  • Research Set-up and Management
  • PT and OT Set-up and Consulting
  • Urgent Care SEO, Social Media and PPC Services

Members can improve their bottom line by saving time and money with select, carefully chosen Medical Practice Services (MPS) professionals whose products and services help to maximize efficiency and productivity. "I am convinced that our membership will continue to expand in the months and years ahead and that they will profitably thrive in the communities they serve", says CEO John Shufeldt, MD, JD, MBA, FACEP.
