About the Conference

As healthcare spending continues to dramatically increase, employers are taking control in an effort to curtail costs while improving the overall health of their workforce. Also, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the primacy of health and wellbeing has never been more profound. Surveys have indicated that over one third of employers have implemented on-site employee clinics, while many others are in the process of either establishing their own clinics or are interested in creating one. Today, a health center can offer a full array of services spanning primary care and prevention to diagnostic testing, chronic condition management, pharmacy dispensing, physical therapy, lab work, wellness, etc. The overall results have been positive, reflecting improved employee health and productivity, attraction and retention, as well as well being and satisfaction. Human resources, benefits and wellness leaders, as well as medical directors will discuss the value of on-site clinics as a successful strategy in controlling health care costs, enabling easy access to medical services, improving employee health, enhancing engagement in worksite programs—and ultimately increasing employee productivity and loss of absenteeism. You will also learn the benefits associated with expanding the present services of current on-site health clinics, and practical solutions to operate a cost-effective healthcare program while providing quality healthcare and wellness programs.

This is the only conference on On-Site Employee Health Clinics that will equip you and your organization with innovative practices, case studies and tools to succeed with reducing healthcare costs, improving workforce health and productivity, and boosting employee engagement and satisfaction. By attending the 2022 On-Site Employee Health Clinics Congress, you will learn what highly regarded organizations are doing to improve employee population health and productivity.

On-site Health Clinics & Wellness Programs: A Unique and Successful Partnership

The key to optimizing this potent combination is to build synergy while aligning efforts toward common goals. This session will highlight one company’s unique, hands-on approach to cultivating an innovative partnership between its “Health Center” and “LivingWell” Program. The talk will highlight tangible examples that can used to make this partnership a successful driver of employee health and wellbeing.

The Vital Role and Onsite Employee Health Clinic Plays During a Pandemic
Organizations across the world are being fundamentally challenged by the pandemic. Companies need to optimize all existing tools to safeguard business continuity. On-site employee health clinics play a vital role in keeping businesses safely open. They are a frontline defense; and a central hub for detecting, evaluating and managing risks. From helping to set physical distancing guidelines and managing possible exposure, to timely hospital referrals and disease management, these clinics are proving invaluable. This session will examine the advantages of on-site clinics that go beyond government mandated requirements.

11:00am – 11:45am
Legal Implications for the On-Site Clinic as an Employee Benefit Plan
On-site clinics are often treated as a group health plan, subject to the same rules as a company’s medical, dental, and other employee benefit plans. How an on-site clinic is treated will depend a lot on the services provided by the on-site clinic and how those services are priced. This presentation will explore those rules and help you understand what is required under ERISA, COBRA, HIPAA, the tax code, and other employee benefit plan laws.

11:45am – 1:00pm
Lunch

1:00pm – 1:45pm
Recreating the Health Care Experience. From the Consumer Back
Up to now, most healthcare redesign has focused on existing elements. Improve process speed or efficiency with expanded technology. Increase patient satisfaction by making interactions less difficult. This session will discuss enhancing health status by thinking continuum of care rather than episode of care. Reduce cost by moving care upstream or to different locations. Too often, the work doesn’t revolve around, or even require, a deep understanding of the customer. Instead, it can get bogged down in the confounding, overlapping set of technology, regulatory, financial, clinical, integration challenges that can make even small improvements difficult to achieve. The talk will explore another way to view this and could a retail lens vault healthcare innovation forward? See what happens to healthcare redesign when you start with the consumer experience first…..and then work back!

1:45pm – 2:30pm
Integrating Behavioral Health Services into Your On-Site Health Center
Encouraging employees to seek care for mental health can be challenging and aligning it with an on-site clinic must include careful considerations. This session will share insights on how the employer identified their population’s unmet need for mental health services, identified the model for their location, and successfully implemented a thriving program. This discussion will address topics like how to protect patient confidentiality with an on-site model, finding the right level of care, building trust and credibility with a local provider, and lessons learned from a first-time implementation. The talk will explore how, built on a “culture eats wellness for breakfast” model, the employer has embraced employee well-being as a core principle of how they do business.

It is no secret that healthcare in America faces difficult challenges, particularly in rural areas. This session will discuss how an onsite health and wellness center does not just improve employee engagement, as data suggests, a health center also makes financial sense by encouraging preventive health and diverting employees away from costly urgent care centers and emergency rooms. A properly structured onsite medical facility can provide employees with convenient, high-quality, low-cost, and easily accessible healthcare services, which can help improve the physical and mental health of employees, manage costs and outcome efficiency, and increase productivity. The talk will also highlight the biggest benefit for an onsite health center is peace of mind for your employees.

4:45 – 5:30pm
Expanding Virtual Care Services Amid a Pandemic
As utilization of telehealth services to replace in-person consultations grows amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many employers' onsite and near-site health centers have transitioned to expand virtual care services. With employees’ health care needs shifting amid the pandemic, employers are looking for ways to reinvent their on-site employee health clinics. Topics to be discussed will include:

- Offering a myriad of virtual care services, including chronic condition management, behavioral health, care navigation, and physical therapy
- The importance of health information technology as on-site employee health centers move to ensure interoperability between their IT systems and electronic medical records
- The integration between on-site employee health centers and vendor partners
- Finding appropriate providers and the community and coordinating care

The Benefits of Implementing PCMH Principles Within an Employee On-Site Clinic
The growing burden of healthcare costs on employers has motivated increasingly direct corporate involvement in strategies to improve workforce health and seek value in medical expenditures. As a result, many employers are considering or already utilizing work-site health clinics, which are well suited to a primary care medical home model. The purpose of this session is to share lessons learned from the successful transformation of an occupational medicine-focused work-site clinic into a primary care medical home caring for over ten-thousand patients. These lessons include leveraging strengths and overcoming barriers to implementation, establishing a timeline and care team uniquely suited to both corporate and patient needs, and utilizing a pilot program to demonstrate value and return on investment.

Workshop – Friday, January 14, 2022

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 onsite 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 onsite 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.
