DALLAS, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentra, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., is changing the way employees receive medical care through their employer with the introduction of its new Best-In-Class (BIC) Worksite program. As an evolution of the company's worksite medical model, Concentra's new system delivers a full scale medical experience for employees to receive quality medical care directly at the workplace.
Concentra's new Best-In-Class Worksite system is focused on improving employees' immediate and long-term health by increasing access to coordinated care, and keeping patients and employers engaged in health and well-being strategies. In return, this unified experience delivers a comprehensive approach that moves beyond occupational and acute care services to include primary care, wellness and prevention, care coordination, chronic care management, behavioral health, and lifestyle improvement services. Models have shown that every $1 invested returns $3 in saved healthcare costs i."We are excited to deliver a new approach to population health that improves access for employees as well as addresses their larger health care needs, thereby setting a new standard for employer health services," said Edward Schwartz, M.D., Concentra's National Medical Director for Worksites and Wellness. "In an era of uncertainty surrounding health care access, Concentra's Workforce Health and Well-Being system offers comprehensive coverage through a single access point, allowing physicians to manage employees' long-term health, while bending the cost curve to reduce excessive spending." Based on extensive research from medical leaders and industry analysts, Concentra identified the 12 critical elements that are required to construct a fully successful workforce health program. The company's new Workforce Health and Well-Being system aligns these elements to support the connection between healthcare and a company's workforce, with a focus on employer engagement, appropriate clinical capabilities, participant engagement, and measurable outcomes.
