What to Look for in a Successful Employer Sponsored Clinic

Employer-Sponsored Medical Clinics: Much More Than Convenience Care

Chronic diseases and their complications are typically the main health care cost drivers of large businesses. In the past, employer-sponsored medical clinics (on-site or near-site) have been viewed as offering employers productivity gains and some medical cost containment while offering employees convenience in caring for acute and minor health problems and the early identification of more serious and costly medical conditions. As employer-sponsored clinics evolve, some are taking on a larger role of not only screening for chronic diseases but also actively managing those conditions in order to help employers better control their health care costs. In this article, a physician and an actuary explore what goes into making an employer-sponsored medical clinic an integral part of a large organization’s health care cost-control strategy and how the clinic can fit into the organization’s overall employee benefit plans.

Successful Clinics’ Characteristics

Clinics that meet cost-containment and employee productivity goals tend to have common characteristics:

• The clinic is part of an integrated, data-driven health and wellness strategic plan that has specific goals and objectives. The most effective strategies are premised on the idea that to have the biggest impact on cost and productivity, the plan identifies programs (both internal and external) and benefits that can work together to address the diseases and conditions that are the primary cost drivers through analysis of the organization’s available health care data.
• The clinic’s management understands the organization’s health and wellness strategic plan, knows what the organization’s primary health care cost drivers are and appreciates the clinic’s role in meeting the plan’s goals and objectives.
• The clinic’s staff has the trust of the employees and can motivate them to follow recommendations and make needed lifestyle changes—possibly the most critical success component.
• The clinic’s management and staff have intimate knowledge of the organization’s other health and wellness benefits and programs and work to promote them to the clinic’s patients.
• The clinic is held accountable for its role in meeting goals and

Wellness spans a continuum of practices and philosophies. It is different for all as none operate in the same environment nor do they have the same needs. Objective evaluation, gathering baseline metrics, and comparing it to a strong data base, yields an assessment and a plan of progression toward a healthy culture of wellness. A plan with a comprehensive regimen and ongoing reevaluation results in a healthy culture and improves future outcomes of health improvement or wellness. The art and science of wellness can allow for a better future for all who participate in it, their quality of life and cost savings that will be seen throughout. An environment of wellness touches every entity that may otherwise be impacted by poor health and self-trial and error. Education produces results. After years of destructive behavior, an employee, or family member, who takes risks with their health ultimately enters the medical system for treatment of chronic conditions. Treatment after the fact takes a toll on all. Industries that focus on their employees choose significant positive impact to bottom line profit. Prevention measures, compliance, and a consistent program toward optimal health and wellness is therefore the ideal steady state. How we get there, what we do to make it happen, how willing we are to embrace it could even determine the wellness of our economy, national security, and position in a global competitive market.
