A Strategic Guide to Planning and Launching an On-Site Clinic
The path to launching an on-site clinic demands hard work, dedication, and a strong commitment to establishing an effective partnership with your on-site clinic vendor.
We hope that this guide will serve to answer any questions you have about the planning and launching process, and prepare you for the transformation an on-site clinic should drive within your organization.
Keys to Promotion & Launch
1. Embrace a Discovery-Oriented Process
After being introduced to the unique approach of an on-site clinic model, employees will have a lot of questions. For most of them, an on-site clinic is a whole new way to receive healthcare. Your vendor should work closely with you to provide all the answers your employees need.
*Avoid information overload: successful communication is a balancing act. Build employee knowledge slowly and they’ll retain everything better.
2. Focus on Information Dissemination & Over Communicate
Use multiple channels like flyers, email, and workshops to communicate information, but don’t make messages overly complicated. Make sure communications also come from different sources, especially department heads and members of your leadership team.
The main key here: never assume anyone is thinking about something the same way. Get things on the table and make sure everyone understands the facts in the same way.
3. Start Talking About Incentives Early
Make sure employees understand what their incentives are worth, how they work, and why they’re important.
4. Regular Meetings Matter
Workshops and face-to-face meetings with clinic staff offer a chance for
employees to get to know their new clinic staff.
Simple and straightforward works best. Communicate the benefits of the clinic to employees and implement the ideas we’ve shared in this eBook. Before you know it, your clinic will be full. Once your clinic launches, regular, patient- focused materials will keep employees excited and informed all year long.
