Retailers Want to Provide You Healthcare, Not Just Sell You Stuff

Retailers such as CVS Health and Walgreens Boots Alliance may force traditional providers to rethink the way they deliver healthcare. The drugstores ramped up care during the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic, often providing more convenient and less costly alternatives. “Traditional providers have to think like retail providers going forward: convenient, transparent and cost-effective,” says Arielle Trzcinski, a principal healthcare analyst at Forrester, a research and advisory company. The retail clinics tend to be less expensive for consumers than traditional providers and urgent care centers, Trzcinski notes, and the walk-in access is an advantage over having to schedule an appointment.

Tech Advances Put the Annual Doctor Visit on the Critical List

Each year, about one in five adult Americans undergoes a routine physical in a doctor’s office, according to one estimate. Doctors take their family history, check blood pressure, heart rate, blood markers and body for signs of disease and, ideally, assess their mental outlook and discuss preventive screenings and the adoption of healthy living habits. An important benefit for many patients and clinicians is the chance to develop a trusting relationship to call upon if and when serious medical problems arise. But the physical’s own health, especially for patients without symptoms, is in jeopardy.
