Employee health and wellness is important! So, how do you help your employees when:
– Patients have to wait an average of 20.6 days to see a primary care physician in-person. (Merrit Hawkins)
– Americans drive an average of 34 minutes to reach their doctor’s office. (Altarum)
– The average in-office wait time before seeing a physician is 20 minutes. (Vitals Index)
For a business, all of this means more time that employees have to spend away from the office for care that may or may not meet their needs. With direct primary care, many health problems that previously took your employees away from work to see a doctor can be effectively addressed with a phone call, text or email. With DPC, the days of waiting to see a doctor are over.
