On-site preventative medical care
Give your employees preventative health solutions where and while they work. Workplaces come in many shapes and sizes, let Mobile Medicine customize your medical care to your unique business. When Mobile Medicine is on-site your employees will be proactive in their own health and the health of your company.
There are no upfront costs to have Mobile Medicine establish a temporary clinic within your workspace. Bringing a doctor on-site is quite simple! All that is required by the company is a blocked/reserved time in a confidential space, such as vacant office or conference room. Dr. McMurry brings all of the necessary medical equipment on-site with her during her visit enabling her to perform blood work, specialty testing, physical exams, therapeutic vitamin injections and/or counseling all within the convenience of the office setting. At the conclusion of the blocked time, all of the equipment is removed from the room and it is free for the next business meeting. Prior to her on-site visit, a flyer is sent to your human resource representative detailing the appointments agreed upon during the on-site time, pricing and employee scheduling information. A HIPAA compliant scheduling platform is used to store employee information confidentially.
As a company, you can expect referral reductions, measurable health outcomes, removal of healthcare barriers, and reduced medication costs.
Referral reduction. Dr. McMurry spends extended time with each of her patients to ensure the root cause of their health issues are addressed. As a result patients are less likely to develop chronic health conditions and are less likely to go to the emergency room for acute or general medical care.
Your employees will have increased access to primary care and a reduction of barriers with better preventative healthcare. Dr. McMurry is a Naturopathic doctor, she focuses on treating the whole person. By addressing every aspect of patient health, she can ensure that each patient has the best health outcomes. Naturopathic doctors utilize a variety of therapeutic tools to treat patients according to their unique health needs rather then just prescription medications. When medication is needed Dr. McMurry prescribes the most effective option. Convenient access is a significant contributor to the success of a managed care approach. Having an on-site doctor increases the likelihood that a patient utilizes primary care early and often. This is especially true when care is employer-funded.
