A success story from PMR
PMR Healthcare (PMR) provided a custom integrated clinic solution for the client. PMR worked closely with the client’s management team to set up, launch, and maintain the clinic and its programs. PMR provided a proprietary matrix of health care management capabilities that ensured a comprehensive, performance-based clinical environment.
An 1850 square foot PMR clinic was opened to employees and their families from 9 AM-6 PM, 5 days a week. It employed 1 physician, a nurse, and 2 medical office staff to treat adults and children for all primary and episodic needs. PMR then helped the client educate its employees about the PMR clinic and its advantages to employees and families, such as convenience and excellent care. PMR also promoted wellness programs, which resulted in a high level of employee participation … an integral part of overall cost effectiveness.

As a self-insured company, the client realized significant benefits from their PMR clinic- primarily increased savings on total health care costs. These savings can be seen in the following numbers:

After the first year, the client integrated an RX prescription program through PMR that is estimated to save another $194,000.00! This level of savings is by a number of factors:
- Reduced use of outside pharmacies
- Increased use of mail order programs
- Onsite dispensation of initial dosing
- Increased use of equivalent generic drugs
