1. Embrace a Discovery-Oriented Process

After being introduced to the unique approach of an on-site clinic model, employees will have a lot of questions. For most of them, an on-site clinic is a whole new way to receive healthcare. Your vendor should work closely with you to provide all the answers your employees need.

2. Focus on Information Dissemination & Over Communicate

Use multiple channels like flyers, email, and workshops to communicate information, but don’t make messages overly complicated. Make sure communications also come from different sources, especially department heads and members of your leadership team.

The main key here: never assume anyone is thinking about something the same way. Get things on the table and make sure everyone understands the facts in the same way.
