Slide notes:Ambulatory [ am -byu-luh-tor-ee] services (also known as outpatient care ) are provided to nonhospitalized patients. A wide range of services are offered by ambulatory care providers, including primary care, which is often provided in a doctors office or a clinic. Specialty medicine services are also provided in ambulatory settings. Examples of various type of services provided through an ambulatory care organization include the following: Outpatient surgery , Sports medicine , Sleep diagnostic laboratories, Physical and occupational rehabilitative services , Laboratory services , and Radiology services , including m agnetic r esonance [ rez - uh - n n tz ] i maging and c omputerized t omography [t uh - m o g -r a -f ee ]. Some organizations have set up wellness centers that provide prevention, education, and wellness patient services. Recently, the industry has seen the emergence of retail clinics that provide basic patient care, flu immunizations, and nonemergency care services onsite at retail stores. Examples are clinics located in pharmacy chains and other retail stores. These can be owned and operated by the retail chain, or the services can be provided through a collaboration between the retail store and the local health care system. Additionally, many public health service offerings through the state and at the local level may provide services through their clinics. 12
