Medcan’s new All-Employee Offering is designed to personalize the wellness experience for today’s modern workforce. During the last 30 years, we have established an international reputation for client-care services like the Annual Health Assessment (AHA). We’re best known for providing preventive, evidence-based, integrated health services while being outcome-focused. With services like fitness training, nutrition, genetics and psychological counseling, we are proud to say we have saved lives, prevented illness and prolonged lifespans.
As we extend the capabilities enabled by our digital transformation, we’re pursuing an expanded client base with virtual technology. The four additional services we’re introducing are cost-effective and provide a compelling return on investment. Employers can either bundle these services all together or offer a selection to employees à la carte. We intend to work with our corporate partners to assist with talent retention and engagement while managing their healthcare, disability and drug costs.
Employers will have access to more data about the health of their workforce, enabling better design of corporate wellness programs and services.
The new offerings include:
Over the past two years, more clients have been purchasing selected services from Medcan for expanded numbers of employees For example, our virtual-consult technology allows us to provide Year-Round Care to an international corporation with locations scattered around the country. To use the service, employees simply access our virtual environment to check in with Medcan health professionals. The employee uses online tools to book an appointment. Before the arranged time, the physician reviews medical history and any client concerns to make the most of the employee’s time. The actual appointment is a secure one-on-one consultation, with follow up provided by our Centralized Patient Support Centre.
We’re excited about the opportunity to enhance our relationships with our corporate clients through the new All-Employee-Offering. By providing more employees with opportunities to engage with more Medcan health professionals, our partners are able to gather deeper and more meaningful data on how best to care for their workforces. That, in turn, empowers employers to reduce drug costs, enhance employee engagement and improve short- and long-term disability outcomes. Medcan’s modeling estimates that for every dollar spent on our services, employers have the opportunity to reduce by $1.75 the costs associated with disability and prescription drug consumption, as well as employee absence and lost productivity.
