Massachusetts health care — wonky, with a healthy dose of reality

Public Health Council to Look at Drug Store Clinics

Public Health Council to Look at Drug Store Clinics

March 9, 2010

The Public Health Council is meeting on Wednesday, March 10 from 9-12 a.m. at their usual location, 250 Washington Street, Boston, 2nd Floor (meeting agenda (pdf)). Included on the agenda are a summary of H1N1 activities and an update on Limited Service Clinics in Massachusetts. When limited service clinics (like CVS’s MinuteClinics) were approved in Massachusetts in 2007, there was much concern about the potential of a lack of coordinated care. The presentation should offer some insight on how the clinics and patients have fared over the past two years.
