Leveraging On- and Near-Site Clinics to Reduce Medical Costs
There remains a great deal of buzz and interest in the market in providing on-site or near-site health centers in the workplace. For those still considering the solution or looking for other ways to provide lower-cost acute care to their members, this discussion will explore the return on investment and how providing access can drive down medical costs fairly significantly. This talk will also discuss measurement methods.

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). This session will address how to set the foundation to build a successful on-site health clinic that is right for your organization.

11:00am – 11:45am
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.

Leveraging Technology to Improve Engagement, Communication, Employee-Patient Experience, Care and Health Outcomes
This session will help you understand how technology’s role in wellness has become increasingly sophisticated. Learn how you can integrate technology into your on-site health clinic and wellness program to create a better informed and engaged experience and boost employee involvement.

The US Public Health Service (PHS) guidelines recommend that healthcare providers assist every patient willing to quit by offering counseling and medication, except when medication is contraindicated or with specific populations for which there is insufficient evidence of effectiveness (such as pregnant women, people who smoke fewer than 10 cigarettes per day, and adolescents). Employees are one of a company's greatest resources. Helping them to stop smoking through programs offered through their employer may help them quit smoking. This session will offer enhanced insight on how employers can improve their smoking cessation strategy to impact trends in employee health by:

• Making the case for a comprehensive smoking cessation benefit
• Incorporating an educational smoking cessation website and mobile app can provide convenient access for smokers going through a quit attempt, and
• Sharing Pfizer’s approach to offer a comprehensive smoking cessation program that incorporates benefit design and clinic services.

Measure the Performance of Your On-Site Health Center
An on-site health center is without a doubt a convenient service for employees, and one that nearly every employee will take advantage of at some point. However, like all programs, building a business case for implementing and sustaining an on-site health center is essential. The way an employer measures performance of an on-site health center can mean the difference of success or failure. This session will focus on determining the metrics used to measure your worksite clinic’s performance, measuring on-site clinic employee health versus non-users health, and the ultimate performance driver that is outcomes in employee engagement and employee health.

Workshop – Monday, July 16, 2018

Decision Factors for Employee On-site Health Centers
The purpose of this workshop is to inform and engage attendees about factors that are critical to employers who are considering the build, revision or expansion of on-site health centers. Two broad discussion areas are (a) deciding to have an on-site health center in the first place, and (b) operationalizing the health center once it is launched. The presenter will provide his experience of developing a network of on-site health centers for a large company along with lessons learned and perspectives with the benefit of hindsight. Questions will be proposed and modified based on audience input to reflect those having priority to the group, then decision points will be delineated following in-depth discussion after sharing of information and practical know-how.

8:15am – 9:00am
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.

Establishing Appropriate and Sustainable Community, Provider and Vendor Partnerships
Onsite health clinics are a part of an employer's overall benefits offering. Whether to operate and staff the onsite clinics with its own employee or to outsource the clinics is a key decision point. Other aspects of having onsite clinics includes determining the scope of services that the clinics will offer, the population served (employees, family members, retirees) and the location for the clinics. Consideration should also be given to determining the value of bringing community resources and services to the workplace to assist employees, e.g., Employee Assistance Program, Worker's Compensation providers, Physical Therapy and athletic trainers. This session will focus on one employer's journey through these decision making steps.

Coordination of Efforts: Employee Medical Clinic and Pharmacy
Incorporating employee health clinics has become imperative in enabling employers to offer competitive benefits, control costs, and provide quality healthcare to employees. Employers must redefine their healthcare strategy, and innovation will be the key to success! We all know what’s wrong with healthcare – it’s impersonal, inconvenient and expensive. Coordination of efforts with employee clinics offer solutions to all of these issues, while reducing overall healthcare costs and providing employees with options that create savvy health care consumers. This session will address a case study on how to integrate employee medical and pharmacy clinics and working with community partners.

Strategies to Implement Telemedicine at Your On-Site Clinic
As employers look to provide convenient and affordable care to their employees, some of their options include providing telemedicine at their on-site health clinic. A growing number are utilizing telemedicine to supplement the services after hours or to those in remote locations. This session will address the advantages of virtual care and how telemedicine can complement your on-site health services.

Workshop – Tuesday, July 17, 2018

12:45pm – 2:45pm
On-Site Clinic Management Models: How to Determine What Model is Right for Your Organization
Which model is the right model for your organization? Too often, employers contract with a third party to implement and manage a clinic before first establishing minimum business requirements and thoroughly evaluating each model design choice. Optional design choices may eliminate potential vendor partners who may not be capable of delivering the desired model.

Do you want to replace the community primary care provider? How much do we need to charge if we have an HSA? Should we offer access to members who have waived coverage? How do we solve for high-cost dependents who might not use the clinic? Will the clinic analyze external medical data and proactively engage members? Should we partner with a health system or use an independent management company? How will this be integrated with community providers?

Before you run a procurement process, these and many other questions need to be answered. This workshop will help you determine which on-site health clinic model is right for your organization, as well as help you understand the components of a business case and how to obtain approval within your organization.
