Amana Care Clinic, a leading urgent care provider in Davenport, Iowa, is implementing new protocols to better protect its patients against COVID-19. Beginning today, in-clinic patients from the Quad Cities area will be pre-screened for the novel coronavirus prior to their arrival at the facility. It will also offer remote consultation via telemedicine to patients who prefer a no-contact doctor’s appointment.

By offering less wait time and more affordable care for non-life threatening ailments, walk-in clinics have become an important fixture of the American healthcare system. This is evidenced by the segment’s rapid growth, which now number 8,7000 clinics as per industry estimates from 2018.
Urgent care providers also play a crucial role—by treating minor emergencies, they allow hospitals to devote more of their resources to diagnosing, treating, and containing the pandemic. With millions of patients visiting walk-in clinics, however, minimizing their risk of exposure to COVID-19 becomes paramount.
This prompted Amana Care Clinic to adapt precautionary measures and to offer innovative means of accessing their services.
People who wish to do in-person consultations simply book an appointment via the website’s “Reserve My Spot” feature, after which they will be pre-screened for COVID-19’s most common symptoms. Meanwhile, those who wish to set a video consultation with a doctor can do so by clicking the “Book a Telemedicine” button.
Among the non-critical conditions the center treats are sprains, bone fractures, back pain, lacerations, burns, common colds, and urinary tract infections. It also has an x-ray facility and complete diagnostic laboratory facilities.
Clinic administrator Dr. Moutaz Kotob says “Patient health is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to doing everything we can to protect them from COVID-19. Our steps towards reducing the risk of exposure and utilizing technology to innovate the way we deliver healthcare is in keeping with our promise of Less Wait, More Care.”
Opened in 2015, Amana Care Clinic is a trusted urgent care provider that services the Quad Cities region of Iowa and Illinois. More information on the clinic can also be found via its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/amanacareclinic
