CINCINNATI, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- OurHealth, the nation's leading provider of near-site primary care clinics,
OurHealth announced its planned expansion to the Cincinnati market in July 2018 and has since partnered with four area employers – First Financial Bank, Rumpke, ADVICS and Carestar – to provide primary care, occupational health and wellness services to their team members and covered dependents.
"We're thrilled to debut our services to thousands of Cincinnati area employees and their families," said co-founder and CEO, Ben Evans. "Today is a celebration of our partnership with several innovative, thought-leading employers in Cincinnati to improve the health and well-being of their workforce while also creating significant cost savings."
OurHealth's system of industry-leading near-site clinics, called the MyClinic network, significantly lowers the barrier to entry by allowing employers to gain immediate access to a network of primary care clinics. The Cincinnati expansion adds to OurHealth's growing MyClinic networks in Charlotte and Indianapolis.
The Cincinnati MyClinic network includes clinics strategically located around the Greater Cincinnati area, making it easy for patients to access care close to work and home. Clinic locations include Springdale Town Center and The Shoppes at Kings Mills. A third location at Fourth and Main Streets in downtown Cincinnati will open later this spring.
Employers are attracted to the company's model for three key reasons — improved access to care for their employees, independence from any hospital system or network allowing for unbiased referrals, and robust reporting capabilities that allow business owners to easily understand their return on investment.
OurHealth is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $140 million. The company takes a patient-focused approach to care, including waiting times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 – 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98 percent. On average, OurHealth patients save $100 on every specialty care referral made through the company's specialized referral team.
The company currently operates clinics in Indiana, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. OurHealth clients include a wide range of employers of all sizes, including the City of Indianapolis, the City of Charlotte, CNO Financial Group, Ice Miller and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
In 2018, OurHealth patients lost a combined 40,000 pounds and 32,000 points of LDL ("bad") cholesterol. OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs.
