Where the mini-clinics are, take 2

When I posted last month about Healthcare 311 –a site focused on mini-clinics– I wrote:

The site interface is pretty basic but it should help if you’re looking for quick, convenient care for minor problems.  Over time I hope the site adopts the functionality of a typical store locator. This would include allowing the user to specify a zip code or street address along with how far a radius to search in. Even better would be to specify the hours of operation and other criteria. For example it would be cool to find the closest clinic that’s open now.

The good news is they’ve taken my advice. The site now allows searches by zip code, city and state. The user can specify the radius to search in as well. It still comes up with nothing near my home in Massachusetts, thanks to objections from MA physicians that have kept mini-clinics at bay for the time being.
