Expanding access to high-quality care

Making good health more convenient for all

The US is expected to face a shortage of up to 55,000 primary care physicians (PCPs) by the year 2033.Source: Association of American Medical Colleges, The Complexity of Physician Supply and Demand: Projections from 2018 to 2033, June 2020. An aging population and a dearth of PCPs is likely to only exacerbate the challenges many individuals already face when trying to access quality healthcare.

Expanding care for rural communities

Today these challenges are even more acute in rural communities, which can cause patients to forego preventive services. Source: The U.S. Government Accountability Office’s article “Why Health Care is Harder to Access in Rural America”, published in May 2023, summarizes various research on why health care is a challenge in rural communities. As an alternative, many seek treatment in hospital settings, which are often inconveniently located, plagued by long-wait times, and at a higher cost to the individual and the broader health system.

ConvenientMD is the largest urgent care provider in New England and today operates a network of more than 45 urgent care and primary care clinics across Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine, including six new locations that opened in 2023. As of Q1 2024.

A comprehensive approach to primary care

In 2022 ConvenientMD launched a new Advanced Primary Care model to expand access to primary care in the communities it serves. To date ConvenientMD has built four new locations for this service and has plans to continue to grow their primary care footprint.

ConvenientMD’s innovative Advanced Primary Care model is high touch and enables the care team to focus on improving patient outcomes. Through close partnership with payors and patients, ConvenientMD works to treat underlying health issues, coordinate, and optimize downstream care, and ultimately improve overall patient health and reduce the total cost of care.
