A near-site clinic has the potential to strategically impact a variety of employee wellness issues including: preventative and sick care, disease management (health coach), prescription (Rx), compliance, improve employee attendance due to illness and reduce overall health care costs. To improve the sustainability of the City’s Health Fund, we need to evaluate opportunities to decrease overall health care costs. Providing an integrated employee health program strategically addresses the gaps and limitations of a standard health insurance model. By implementing a Near-site Employee Clinic, the City will have a strategic opportunity to address our gaps in care, under-utilization of health-services, prescription medication compliance and disease management needs by leveraging an external health provider who focuses 100% on our employee population. Once implemented the clinic can deliver a variety of scalable services catering to the City’s employees, their dependents and potentially offer services to local retirees. This model has been successfully implemented in other local cities and has provided a return on investment by effective managing and reducing health care costs. The initial operating expense of $727,950 includes $150,000 of startup costs (non-recurring).
