Caught taking the long road again? 2020 On-site waits in traffic for your employees, so they can spend more time doing what they love. Employees make sure to get their annual eye exam and your company reduces longterm medical spend. It’s how eye care rolls.
It converts to a pretty simple math problem. Add up time spent at work, commuting, grocery shopping, doing laundry, making dinner, socializing, exercising, spending time with family, catching up on TV shows...the answer is few to no hours free. It is increasingly difficult for employees to find time in their schedules to fit in any kind of doctor’s appointment, much less one with the eye doctor. People recognize that, as one of the five senses, vision is important to daily life, yet it tends to be one of the more neglected basic health issues.
Together with the typical thoughts you might have regarding a traditional doctor’s visit, can lead to years of skipping out.
These thoughts are unsurprising. But there is a new thought emerging – “Is there an easier way to do this that eliminates the hassle?” Mobile health clinics are a modern trend that aim to address this problem of finding time for something that should be high priority but often isn’t – your health. Mobile healthcare removes the travel barrier and significantly cuts back on the time you need to allocate, turning the time spent seeing the doc equivalent to grabbing lunch. On-site clinics add value in three major ways: improved employee health, lowered healthcare expenditures for companies, and improved productivity due to both reduced absences and presenteeism, which occurs when an employee comes to work impaired in some way and is unable to work to his or her full ability.
According to a Forbes article about The Surprising Employer Benefit Millenials Really Want, "The focus on providing health benefits to employees is not a millennial issue, it just happens to coincide with the rise in health care costs, thus making it important to millennials. Since costs have been rising for years, employers began to recognize a need to fill the gap to attract the best talent."
The most common deterrents to getting regular exams are time, cost, and prioritizing the issue. Mobile healthcare addresses these points by making the solution accessible and easy to utilize, focused on working for instead of against populations of busy, working adults. Services provided by on-site clinics have moved beyond traditional occupational health and minor acute care services to now offer a full range of wellness and primary care services, from flu shots to dentistry. In the field of eye care, 2020 On-site offers the following benefits:
