Modern Healthcare: Mobile health clinics can improve the bottom line

mobile clinics offer vaccinations and are cost-effective

The use of mobile clinics is a cost-effective way for health systems to build trust and support in underserved communities, according to a new report.

“I think there are just some misconceptions about what [a] mobile [clinic] costs and what it can do,” said Mollie Williams, executive director at Harvard Medical School’s Mobile Health Map. Mobile Health Map, which aggregates data on mobile clinics across the country, co-authored the report along with the Mobile Health Association.
