NuPhysicia LLC launches new employee health service by video telemedicine

HOUSTON, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The healthcare benefits industry today gained a new, cost-effective health benefit option for employers. Medicine At Work(TM) by NuPhysicia LLC brings retained physician services to the workplace, using video telemedicine to connect board certified doctors and patients for examinations, diagnosis, medical care and wellness coaching.

Medicine At Work(TM) delivers innovative medical instruments, telecommunications equipment, and, through its retained physicians, professional healthcare services directly to employees at their place of work. Using two-way video, the doctor providing services to Medicine At Work conducts examinations in real-time with the assistance of a specially trained on-site paramedic.

Melody Reid, NuPhysicia's Executive Director for Employee Health Services, said, "Medicine At Work(TM) is a truly innovative workplace solution using proven video telemedicine technology. Industry research shows that on-site care enables employers to control healthcare costs, while giving employees convenient access to medical attention from physicians at work during business hours. Employees visit Medicine At Work(TM) clinics at the worksite for doctor visits, prescriptions when needed, one-on-one wellness coaching, and other healthcare needs, without the time away from work and expense normally associated with seeing a doctor."

Dr. Michael Davis, Senior Vice President of NuPhysicia, stated, "Through the physicians associated with this program, Medicine At Work(TM) offers a full-time medical presence in the workplace, blending high technology telemedicine and high touch. The doctors use innovative tools and equipment and secure electronic medical records (EMRs), and develop an old-fashioned doctor-patient relationship with the focus on improving employee health."

Medicine At Work(TM) also offers employers an enhanced, individualized health risk assessment (HRA) program. Medicine At Work's HRA 2.0(TM) gives employees a high level of interaction with two direct visits with a doctor and paramedic, biometric examinations, and wellness program development and training - all conducted at the employee's place of work. Because of this convenience and ease of access, HRA 2.0(TM) achieves very high rates of completion; at one customer, approximately 97% of employees completed their detailed assessment.

Dr. Davis explained, "Medicine At Work(TM) HRAs are especially effective because the retained physician and paramedic staff are personally involved in verifying patient information. After the patient completes the HRA 2.0(TM) form, the paramedic performs biometric testing and the physician conducts a personal interview with the patient. It is a next-generation health risk assessment, and moves the state of the art to a new level of completeness and effectiveness."

Dr. Davis continued, "Very importantly, this program is not a replacement for a patient's personal physician. It is a program for delivering collaborative medical care in the workplace for employees when and where they need it. After any Medicine At Work(TM) clinic visit, employees can leave with printouts of detailed, specific information to discuss with their regular doctor or a specialist."

A Medicine At Work(TM) clinic is cost-effective and space-efficient to outfit, needing only a minimum of 12 X 12 feet of space, an electrical outlet, Internet connection and a door for privacy at the employer site. Medicine At Work(TM) provides all furnishings, equipment, clinic staff and medical care services for a fixed monthly cost per employee.

Executive Director Reid added, "Companies offer Medicine At Work(TM) to improve the health and productivity of their workforce. There are no co-pay costs or insurance claims to file when seeing a doctor at the Medicine At Work(TM) clinic, making it a great benefit for employees. Employees may be asked to pay for flu vaccines, other adult immunizations, outside lab work and other ancillary costs."

Reid continued, "Medicine At Work(TM) is not an insurance product and is not affiliated with any specific insurance carrier. Also, the Medicine At Work(TM) clinic won't be affected if an employer changes insurance carriers."

"Medicine At Work(TM) is a tremendous step forward for employers who are seeking new health benefits features for their employees," Dr. Davis shared. "With it, all the values and benefits of an on-site clinic are now available to more employers."
