Are you going to the Urgent Care Association of America’s (UCAOA) 2018 Spring Convention and Expo? Then you won’t want to miss what we have in store for this year’s event!

Hear from Practice Velocity Experts

This year our CEO Dr. David Stern will offer his urgent care expertise during two presentations. The first topic he’ll discuss is “Now is a Great Time to Open a New Urgent Care Center,” offering his expert perspective on the current conditions in urgent care. This is a great presentation for those who are interested in opening or expanding urgent care practices in the near future.

In his Industry Perspectives presentation, Dr. Stern will discuss major changes coming to the urgent care industry that could have a dramatic effect on how you do business. You won’t want to miss his views on when to expect these changes and how you might be able to use them to your advantage.

You can also hear from Alan Ayers, our vice president of strategic initiatives. Alan will provide an invaluable perspective during his presentation “Hospital Urgent Care Operations: A Pathway to Profitability.” You’ll learn why hospitals haven’t seen financial success running urgent care centers in the past and what kind of business models are a better fit for the unique needs of hospital health systems.


You’ve probably heard that we’re giving away the biggest prize in UCAOA history, and the only way to enter for your chance to win is by visiting Practice Velocity’s booth at #203. What are we giving away? We’re not making the big reveal until the convention! Until then, check frequently for clues.

Our Must-Attend Giveaway Party

The lucky #SomethingBig winner will be announced on Tuesday night at our giveaway party located at Caesars Palace Apollo Pool. Join us for drinks, delicious appetizers and amazing entertainment! Believe us… you don’t want to miss this party!

Our Award Winning EMR

Don’t just stop by the booth for the prize, though. Our urgent care experts will be on hand to answer your questions about our award-winning urgent care EMR and practice management software, offering short cuts, use cases, live demos, and all the ways you can customize the solution to fit your needs. You can also learn about our urgent care billing, contracting and credentialing, consulting and teleradiology services.

If you’re already a client, we encourage you to set up a meeting time with us so we can personally answer any questions you might have. We have private meeting spaces available at our booth and can even offer live demos to get your questions answered before you leave Las Vegas.

Learn about Dr. Stern and Alan’s New Book

In partnership with first edition author Dr. Michael Boyle, Dr. Stern and Alan have released the second edition of “The Healthcare Executive’s Guide to Urgent Care Centers and Freestanding EDs.” Dr. Stern and Alan contribute their extensive urgent care expertise in this updated edition of the book, offering a practical toolkit that outlines the urgent care startup and expansion process, as well as topics that were previously unexplored in the first edition. Visit the Practice Velocity booth to find out how you can purchase the book and to receive a flyer with a UCAOA-exclusive discount.

The UCAOA Spring Convention & Expo is May 6-9 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. We’ve got a lot planned for this year’s UCAOA, so make sure you schedule your trip accordingly!
