How to grow your practice with group medical visits
Abstract: Group medical visits are a growing trend in physician practices. Under this appointment model, a physician sees and consults with multiple patients in a single setting at one time. There are two types of group visits: the shared medical appointment (SMA), also known as the cooperative health clinic (CHC), and the drop-in group medical appointment. This article describes both types and how they have the potential to satisfy patients and physicians alike.
