West Palm Beach, FL, November 09, 2014 --(PR.com)-- On-site clinics are quickly becoming the solution that many organizations are turning to in order to reduce healthcare claims and direct costs, while increasing the productivity, health, retention and healthcare accountability of their employees. Now more than ever, employers are focusing on implementing these cost-saving initiatives in the workplace.

According to the According to the “Worksite Medical Clinics 2012 Survey Report” from health and human resources consultant Mercer, 15 percent of employers with 500 – 4,999 employees have onsite clinics, with 11 percent more planning to add a clinic before the end of 2014. Also, 37 percent of employers with 5,000 or more employees implemented an on-site clinic with 15 percent more planning to add one before the end of 2014.

Many have asked the Corporate Health & Wellness Association (CHWA) to take the lead in bringing together employers to collaborate on solutions for getting employees high-quality preventative and primary healthcare that is convenient and affordable. To fulfill this request, the CHWA hosted the First Annual On-site Clinics in the Workplace Forum on September 22, as part of the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress (EHBC).

The invitation only event gathered Employers, Chief Medical Directors, Wellness Managers and Benefits Directors to network and discuss the challenges facing on-site health clinics.

“Onsite clinics can be a very useful tool for employers working on improving the health of their employees,” said Renée-Marie Stephano, President of the Corporate Health & Wellness Association. “On-site clinics can help employers insure their employees have access to quality healthcare, boost employee productivity, control healthcare costs and improve employee retention. These benefits can only be achieved with an efficient clinic however. The CHWA wanted to bring stakeholder together to ensure employees remain happy, while employers are not wasting time and money on a clinic that is not working.”
