Wonder if visits by time-of-day and day-of-the-week would yield any insight into whether visits to retail clinics were in substitution for the ER or Urgent Care, or if it would just create internal bias subject to clinic hours of operation. I'm not aware of any retail clinics with 24-hour operation, but the data for those metrics should be readily available.
