How Onsite Clinics Work
Onsite clinics are an excellent vehicle for delivering primary care services. They centralize healthcare for patients, and provide the majority of consultation, treatment, and follow-up they need at one location from one dedicated primary care team.
What are onsite clinics?
Onsite or near-site clinics are the most effective way to provide high-quality primary care that’s truly accessible, so patients actually use it and get healthier.
At an onsite clinic, patients meet with a dedicated provider, nurse, or health coach who has time to spend with them and isn’t pressured to see as many patients as possible
They have time to form strong relationships, gain insight into any underlying issues, and provide the necessary treatment and guidance to empower patients to achieve better health.
How do onsite clinics work for patients?
At an onsite clinic, patients get the care they need, when they need it, so they can improve or maintain their health, stay productive, and live longer, happier lives.
- Clinics act as a medical home — Rather than enduring a constant parade of specialists and bouncing between different facilities, patients receive the majority of their healthcare needs at a single location by a dedicated primary care team.
- Scheduling made easy and affordable — No more waiting weeks to see your primary care provider. At an onsite clinic, scheduling is easy. Patients can normally be seen on the same or next day, with short wait times and little to no copay.
- Onsite facilities for faster results — With lab facilities and dispensaries onsite, patients enjoy greater convenience for point-of-care testing and prescription refills.
- Care coordination simplified — When specialist treatment is necessary, a patient’s dedicated care team coordinates everything. From follow-up care to integration of any new directives or prescriptions, care plans are designed to ensure there are no gaps in care or communication.
- Integrated Health Coaching — Health coaches partner with providers and patients to work on goal setting as part of a dedicated care plan. With guidance from their health coach, patients can change their behavior and drive their own positive health outcomes.
