Heart Health and Financial Savings for CareHere Crowne LLC’s
Onsite Care Clients
OCOEE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AmericanHeart—Crowne
Consulting Group, benefits experts helping employers save money
through onsite healthcare, is spotlighting patient-focused care in
celebration of American Heart Month this February.
“Onsite care is optimized when coupled with personalized initiatives
including health-risk assessments, incentive programs, and worksite
health coaches to help individuals maintain a healthy lifestyle through
physical activity, nutrition, and disease prevention,” said Ray
Tomlinson, president of Crowne Consulting Group.
The District School Board of Pasco County promotes a healthy culture
with onsite care for over 10,000 plan members. The district has worked
with Crowne’s experts and medical affiliates since 2011 through CareHere
Crowne LLC, which oversees onsite care operations. Onsite
and near-site health centers provide employees, retirees, and
dependents convenient access to no-cost primary and chronic care,
screenings, lab work, X-rays, EKG, generic prescriptions, and wellness
programs including smoking cessation.
“After 25 years of smoking, I succeeded to permanently quit smoking
without any tendency to smoke again,” said Maged Honien, 41, who is an
eighth-grade science teacher working with a certified health coach at
Pasco schools’ onsite health center. “I’ll keep taking care of my health
by staying smoke free and by going to the gym at least twice weekly.”
In addition to success stories and district awards from the American
Heart Association for promoting a healthy workplace, the district has
drastically cut costs. Between 2011 and 2016, Pasco schools reported
over $26 million savings in health and medication expenditures.
Simultaneously, district employees saved over $4 million in co-pays for
office visits and generic medication.
“In addition to lowering expenses, employers with onsite or near-site
care centers are promoting heart health and demonstrating measurable
outcomes in employee care,” added Tomlinson.
