WORKSHOP SESSION B
Tuesday, July 18, 2017 ∙ 12:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m.
Strategies for Enhancing and Measuring the Value Proposition of Establishing a New or Expanding an Existing On-Site Employee Health Clinic
As many employers have established on-site employee health clinics and others considering such operations, they want to know how to boost the value proposition of their investment. This workshop will highlight various strategies, based on reported best practices and the workshop leader’s own experiences, for achieving employee health and productivity management goals.
Using data from real on-site clinic case studies, the workshop facilitator will guide workshop participants in (1) assessing the feasibility of adopting best practices in their clinic setting, (2) understanding how best practices can enhance the value proposition of a new or existing employee health clinic, (3) considering several techniques for measuring a value proposition and, (4) gauging how best practices used in their particular clinic compare against published best practices.
Workshop attendees will receive a hard copy of an Effective Practice Guideline (EPG) report that David was invited to write for the Society of Human Resource Management Foundation. The peer-reviewed report describes and illustrates strategies for measuring the financial value of prospective or existing worksite health management programs and facilities.
