Insights

New Way For Urgent Care Centers to Increase Patient Volume and Margin

Commercial payer volume on the decline and overhead is eating your margin, but there is a new way for urgent care centers, FQHC, and primary care practices to increase volume and margin. Mira functions both as a management service organization (MSO) and a payor. Mira takes care of patient acquisition, simplify payment, and reduce overhead - making pricing predictable to attract new patients and helping providers maintain a stable margin. By using a global rate and leveraging the network effect, Mira allows providers to participate in bigger and more sophisticated contracts with demand aggregators like contractors placement agencies and gig-economy services. All of this means more patients, better care, lower overhead, and most important of all, stay relevant in the new ultra-competitive healthcare landscape.
