More and more employers who are frustrated by the rising costs of healthcare look to on-site clinics as a creative solution for their organizations. Understanding the differences between various models of on-site clinics can help interested employers focus their research on the type of clinic that makes sense for their organization’s unique needs.
All is not well in healthcare today. The American medical sector dwarfs most other sectors of the economy. Hundreds of million of dollars are spent on research. Little progress is made. Costs continue to rise, and Americans are sicker than ever before. Where does this leave employers?
Here's a look at three of the most common on-site clinic models available today.1. Full-Service Primary Care Clinic (Vera Whole Health)
2. Basic Primary Care Clinic
3. Occupational Health
Beyond deciding on a type of clinic, employers considering on-site solutions need to consider whether to partner with a vendor like Vera, or to develop the clinic on their own. Working with a vendor offers employers a head start on their clinic because it’s being built and operated by someone with proven experience in the healthcare industry, but it may not provide the level of customization or control that some employers are looking for.
On the flip side, approaching a clinic from a DIY approach may be too much to handle for employers who aren’t ready to handle the demands of a clinic launch or its day-to-day operations, including staffing and training.
