New Kalorama White Paper Examines Retail Clinic Winners and Losers Post-Recession

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - Kalorama Information, a healthcare market research publisher, announced a new white paper, "Retail Clinics, Winners and Losers, 2009-2011," available for free on its website. The white paper, based on a more thorough research report completed by Kalorama in April of this year, takes a look at the results of retail clinic operators in the past two years, and discusses the merits of various locales for the retail clinic concept.

"Launching a new concept is tough in any economy, and the economy of recent years has been tough on retail clinics," said Bruce Carlson, publisher of Kalorama Information. "Yet the concept has survived, and we are starting to see who will be the most likely competitors as we move into the future."

Kalorama Information publishes approximately 40-50 studies per year on a variety of healthcare market areas. The reports combine research from company annual reports and published material with primary research from interviews with executives and industry experts. The company is an independent vendor of market research reports and has conducted three studies on retail clinics since 2007. According to Kalorama the small size of the market -- approximately 1,350 stores as of 2010 -- shouldn't belie its importance.

"There aren't retail clinics in every store in America yet, to be sure," said Carlson. "But this is a concept that has a future and it's something that a marketing person or product manager in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic or device industry would want to keep in mind for any long-term business planning."
