Also is provided in a broad array of settings i ncluding physician offices, home health care agencies, community health centers, urgent care centers and outpatient surgery centers. Ambulatory care is given to persons who are not confined to a hospital but rather are ambulatory and, li terally, are able to ambulate or walk about. Medical service doesn’t require the patient to stay overnight. The goal of ambulatory care is timelier care of patients. Hospitals could not easily be overrun with patients who don’t have urgent. I believe the society’s view about health care have good comments and thanks to A mbulatory Care, because i t is easier to see the doctor and communicate with them, also t he waiting time is shorter than inpatient Hospital. The Ambulatory Care departments are very well equipped with all facilities. After visiting these Ambulatory Care Centers, you w ill be satisfied and have good views about the health care.

The more services can be i mprove the accuracy of patient identification, improve the effectiveness of communication among caregivers and improve the safety of using medications.
