A recent survey by the Business Group on Health found that 58 percent of 122 large employers surveyed said they are operating an on-site clinic, according to an article on the Fierce Healthcare article.
Another 3 percent said their first clinic will open next year. Eleven percent said they are considering opening a clinic in 2022 or 2023.
According to the report, on-site clinics are flexible enough to adapt to the current landscape and provide COVID-19 and virtual care.
Nearly a quarter of those surveyed said they're aiming to circumvent some of the traditional delivery system, while 5 percent said they plan to pursue alternative payment and delivery models.
