Many employers are taking proactive steps to address the increasing healthcare costs for their employees by establishing worksite/onsite clinics within their facilities. These clinics are not only providing medical services but also dispensing medication to employees, leading to faster recovery, reduced costs, and enhanced loyalty.
One of the key advantages of worksite/onsite clinics is the positive impact on employee productivity. In the United States, a significant percentage (40%) of prescriptions are either not filled or not followed as directed. This non-compliance can prolong treatment, delay recovery, and result in unnecessary medical expenses totaling billions of dollars each year. By implementing in-office dispensing, clinics ensure that prescriptions are filled and treatment plans are discussed directly between the patients and physicians. This improves medication adherence, accelerates recovery, and facilitates a quicker return to work.
In addition to improving employee productivity, worksite/onsite clinics offer cost-saving benefits for employers. By providing physician and medication dispensing services on-site, organizations can reduce their healthcare expenditures. Reports indicate that some employers have achieved savings ranging from 10% to 60% on prescription medication costs. Furthermore, by eliminating intermediaries and offering transparency in medication pricing, employers can better manage and control their healthcare expenses.
By offering convenient point-of-care dispensing, worksite/onsite clinics prioritize the well-being and satisfaction of employees. Instead of employees having to visit a pharmacy and endure waiting times to obtain their prescriptions, they can conveniently receive medications directly from their treating physician. This level of care and convenience reinforces employee loyalty and protects their confidentiality, as they can rely on their trusted doctor for their medication needs.
