Track: Management and Administration in OEM
Bruce W. Sherman, MD, FACOEM*, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co, Akron, OH
Worksite clinics are gaining in popularity as one means to address continuing increases in healthcare costs. However, data regarding measurement of the return on investment (ROI) for worksite clinics is scant. A survey regarding ROI measurement of worksite clinics was recently jointly distributed through a number of channels, including ACOEM's Corporate Medicine Section, to employers with worksite clinics to better understand how ROI is being calculated for these services. The results are intriguing, and illustrate the variability in approach to ROI measurement that exists in the employer setting. This session will review the findings of the survey, and discuss the implications for OEM clinicians. Session attendees will leave with a better understanding of the issues related to quantifying worksite clinic ROI, and how to more effectively quantify the value of the provided services. This session is sponsored by the Corporate Medicine Special Interest Section.
