Acquisitions, Funding, Business, and Stock

Carbon Health acquires Central Jersey Urgent Care, a chain of 10 clinics that will transition to Carbon Health’s proprietary EHR. Carbon Health acquired remote patient monitoring company Alertive Healthcare last week.

The local business paper looks at the steps physician groups like Buffalo Medical Group and Primary Care IPA in New York are taking to prepare for competition from retailers like CVS Health, Walmart, and Walgreens. Some physician executives believe retail care can take the pressure off of primary care practices in terms of offering COVID-19 testing for school and routine treatments for minor acute ailments, offerings that are in such demand they sometimes preclude a practice from being able to offer well visits and other immunizations in a timely manner. They are concerned, however, with the likely lack of health information exchange between the retailers and their offices: “We have to do a good job of making sure that health care is available in all our communities,” says Bassett Medical Group’s Joseph Sellers, MD. “The practice of medicine may be more difficult, but I don’t know that the retail clinics are going to be filling those gaps.”
