Simplify your needs

On average, employers who center their benefits strategy around an on- or near-site clinic reduce their list of vendors by 25%. Clinics reduce vendor count by providing many of the same services those vendors offer, including behavioral and occupational health, and health coaching. Depending on the vendor, an on- or near-site clinic can handle the vast majority of care your employees need.

Reduce management complexity

Reducing the need for vendors also reduces the complications of managing them. The benefits of reduced management complexity are twofold.
  1. Reduced vendor complexity makes it easier to communicate your benefits package to employees. Better understanding leads to better utilization — and improved health and lower costs.
  2. HR staff spend less time managing vendors, so they spend more time working on employee communication strategies. Again, better communication changes the dynamic.

An on- or near-site clinic makes things simpler. Your employees understand their benefits better, and you save time and energy by managing fewer vendors.
