Health IT company DocuTAP has released an urgent care report highlighting occupational medicine data and trends.

The report examined employer services (i.e. occupational medicine, workers' compensation insurance) in urgent care from 2013-2017. For the report, researchers used data from urgent care clinics that are current or former DocuTAP users during the study period.

Here are five findings:

1. Fifty-six percent of urgent care clinics that provide some employer services saw 10 percent or less of their visits come from such services. For 20 percent of those clinics, employer services made up 21 percent or more of their visits.

2. Each urgent care clinic that provides some employer services has 32 visits per day on average. That compares to 19 visits per day on average for clinics not providing such services.

3. Employer services made up 14 percent of all urgent care visits in 2017, up from 8 percent in 2013.

4. More specifically, the average number of occupational medicine visits to each urgent care clinic per day nearly doubled during the studied time period, from 1.79 to 3.44.

5. Overall, employer services visits, on average, only made up 8 percent of urgent care clinics' total revenue, although those services accounted for 12 percent of visits to the clinics.
