This study explored the willingness of Chattanooga community members to utilize retail clinics for simple ailments rather than the area EDs. Specifically, community members ages 25-45 were surveyed and asked to rate their willingness to use a retail clinic for their acute healthcare needs rather than the overcrowded local EDs. Additionally, this study explored community members’ perceived barriers to use retail clinics. Results were compared between demographic variables such as yearly income, race, gender, and age.
