Setting the Foundation to Build and Develop an Innovative On-Site Health Clinic
On-site clinics are all unique, reflecting the geography, demographics, culture and clinical needs of the employer and its workers, as well as the medical resources available in the local community. Each clinic should be customized to meet the needs of a specific organization and employer benefit strategies. These must be reflective of the objectives of the sponsoring employer and the medical needs of the population (i.e., improving health and productivity of employees, reducing medical expenses, reducing unnecessary services, offering convenient access to providers).

Establishing a Comprehensive On-Site Health Clinic Using a Population Heath Management and Coordinated Care Approach
In an effort to create happier, healthier workers while reducing the skyrocketing costs of chronic disease management and health insurance premiums, employers are increasingly recognizing the critical role they can play in bringing wellness into the daily routines of their employees. On-site health clinics are more likely to attract patients with higher risk profiles for chronic diseases, which may contribute to a higher return on investment by reducing costs related to urgent care or emergency department use. Employers can also foster greater care coordination and the use of less expensive, in-network specialty physicians by using their on-site health centers to ensure that patients are being referred to providers and partners within their preferred circle. This session will address how implementing an onsite health clinic can improve population health outcomes and provide a happier and healthier workplace culture.

How to Effectively Communicate and Promote Wellness Offerings in the Workplace
Besides saving employers money in healthcare costs, on-site clinics provide employees a convenient and affordable way to receive preventative care as well as minor acute care. But even if the benefits seem straightforward, many onsite clinics languish without much volume. In order to get employees actually visiting your on-site clinic, you need to build some excitement. This session will discuss creative ways to boost engagement, including targeted communications strategies to drive action, personalized messaging, and how to build a champion network to help drive engagement.

9:00am - 9:45am
Data and Analytics that Enable Targeted Engagement
Health data and analytics are paving the way for employers to do what’s right for employees they provide medical coverage for, as well as their bottom line. Data and analytics are giving employers and clinicians insight into workforce health. They can take the insight and data and use it to make investments where they’ll have the most impact. This session will discuss this important trend in on-site clinic planning and implementation, and best practices in vendor selection, and ongoing evaluation of clinic results.

9:45am – 10:15am
How to Staff Your On-Site Clinic
Staffing practices vary from one onsite clinic to another. In many onsite clinics, a physician may be present during all hours or part-time, alongside supporting nurses and staff. Some onsite clinics provide various pharmacy, specialty or ancillary clinical services such as chiropractic, massage, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dentistry, optometry, etc., depending on employee request or employer onsite clinic strategy. Some feature specialty providers such as nutritionists. Many also include fitness centers. This session will address various on-site clinic staffing models and strategies and help you determine which model is best for your organization.

11:00am – 11:45pm
Deciding What Services to Offer at Your On-Site Health Clinic
The scope of services offered at on-site health clinics varies, with most offering at least urgent care but many providing broader services. Many clinics are often referred to as “health and wellness centers,” due to the wide range of primary, specialty, first aid, occupational health, acute, condition management, wellness and ancillary services offered. This session will help guide you in determining what services to offer at your on-site health clinic.

11:45am – 12:30pm
Strategies to Implement Telemedicine at Your On-Site Clinic

Workshop – Tuesday, July 17, 2018

12:45pm – 2:45pm
On-Site Clinic Management Models: How to Determine What Model is Right for Your Organization
There are different onsite-health clinic models employers can choose to build, design and manage their clinic: employer-managed, vendor-managed, provider-managed, or a combination of these models. An employer can operate the clinic itself, hiring the staff as its own employees. However, most employers don’t want to take on the compliance, staffing, and management tasks so instead, they choose to outsource these services. The vast majority of clinics are contracted out to a third-party vendor. In addition, employee on-site health clinics are now run by hospitals or physician groups, who use or hire their own clinic and administrative staffs or utilize existing provider facilities to serve the employee population. Finally, an increasing number of employers are participating in shared, multi-employer clinics, located either on one employer’s location or centrally located. These may be owned by the employers or the employers could contract with a provider or outside vendor who specializes in this type of center. The vendor will build, staff and manage the facility either at the request of a group of employers or will solicit employers in a specified geographic area. This workshop will help you determine which on-site health clinic model is right for your organization, as well as how to remain engaged regardless of which model you choose, provider selection, center oversight, strategy, and policy direction.
