Indicator 11.2.4Outpatient visits, UC medical centers, 2003-04 to 2009-10
UC medical centers conduct almost 4 million outpatient visits per year.
Outpatient visits are defined as visits during which patients see either a physician or nurse practitioner in a clinic. Visits to other units, such as radiology, laboratory and physical therapy, are not counted as outpatient visits.
The medical centers provide a full range of health care services and are sites for testing the application of new knowledge and the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.
