QuadMed Opens New Corporate Health Suite
NEW YORK—QuadMed, a provider of onsite primary care clinics and health care management solutions, announced the opening of a Corporate Health Suite in midtown Manhattan. Created in 1990 as a subsidiary of Quad/Graphics, QuadMed now serves a variety of Fortune 1000 companies.
The Corporate Health Suite is QuadMed’s newest offering and is designed to meet the needs of employers with limited real estate, smaller populations or distributed workforces. In as little as 500 square feet—the size of a large conference room—a dedicated onsite QuadMed nurse works closely with employees to determine their individual health goals and coordinate care. The nurse also coordinates secure telehealth access to other health care professionals, such as physicians and registered dietitians.
“Bottom line, this model of health care can help save downstream health care costs by keeping employees healthy and chronic conditions under control,” said Tim Dickman, president of QuadMed. “We are proud to have a showcase facility in the nation’s largest city.”
QuadMed’s newest Corporate Health Suite is located within Quad/Graphics’ Times Square-area sales and premedia office and serves the company’s 150-plus Manhattan-based employees.
“Our first week of operation was a great success,” said Jill Esser, who manages the new Manhattan QuadMed Corporate Health Suite. “We engaged with more than 80 prospective patients in our open houses, booked over 50 appointments and have received extremely positive feedback on the appearance and range of services. Employees are excited that they don’t have to trek out into the city to have many of their health care needs met.”
Convenience and flexibility are key elements of the Corporate Health Suite model. Patients have access to care at work and on their schedule. “But, most importantly, we reach patients through personal relationships,” Esser added. “Our onsite nurse is in the office full-time and develops wellness programming specific to the population. Background information on the remote health care providers is also readily available to patients.”
