A success story from PMR
PMR Healthcare (PMR) consulted with the client and showed the client’s management team that they were not too small for PMR to provide them with a successful, savings-driven clinic solution. Once PMR was selected as the client’s clinic operator, PMR worked diligently to design the clinic solution that this specific client required.
An approximately 924 square foot PMR clinic was opened to all 492 employees and their families for 50 hours a week.The clinic was designed to treat patients for all of their primary care and episodic care effectiveness. PMR also added a prescription dispensation program to the client’s site, allowing patients to receive most medications for free and the client to see Rx savings.
PMR spent the first year focusing on educating the client’s employees about the PMR clinic and its advantages to the employees and their families. Focusing on patient education and interaction was an integral part of overall cost effectiveness.
