and watch your employee's wellness program engagement soar while your health care spend drops significantly
Many employers invest in components of healthcare management – health risk assessments, disease management, wellness programming, case management, coaching, and so on – only to be disappointed with the results.
Span the care continuum with a worksite health and wellness clinic developed and management by MHI Worksite Health Solutions
In a recent study with one rural manufacturing employer...
baseline emergency department (ED) utilization prior to opening their worksite health and wellness clinic was 74.7/100 employees.
At roughly 700 employees for all three shifts, they were experiencing about 523 visits to the emergency room, many of which were admitted for observation. When you multiply this by the average cost of an adult ED visit ($2900) the annual average spend on emergency visits was approximately $1,516,700. At the end of the first year, utilization was reduced to 42.4/100 for an approximate ED savings of $656,000. Utilization was further reduced to 32.3/100 in year two, for additional savings of $861,000 compared with baseline.
The Emergency Department (ED) is often considered the ‘front door’ to a hospital and is a major center of operations. Rural EDs disproportionately account for patient volumes, expenses, revenues, risk and quality when compared to larger urban and suburban hospitals. At the same time, observation admissions for this employer (at an average cost of $10,000 per admission) were also reduced by about 70%. While this is significant, one should also take into consideration that the costs for admissions are significantly higher in the rural setting.
