Quote 
"Some estimates show that, by preventing health risk escalation and thus downstream utilization, retail clinics can reduce total healthcare spend by a few hundred dollars per patient. Long-term savings could therefore outweigh the $14 per person cost that this study shows can result from increased retail clinic utilization to manage low-acuity conditions."
-Emily Zuehlke, research consultant, The Advisory Board Company
 
Factoid 
"60 percent of [millennials managing chronic conditions] are very interested in new healthcare formats that may require out-of-pocket payments such as retail clinics, home visits by a doctor and same-day appointments."
