As a value of membership in NAWHC, member organizations are offered opportunities to participate in projects funded by grants from foundations, government, pharma, vendors and others interested in the advancement of worksite clinics and serving the clinic patient population.
Below are the current projects NAWHC members can participate in:
I. Genentech – Flu Treatment Sampling Program
NAWHC has received support from Genentech to offer members an opportunity to obtain education on the 2019-2020 flu season and a limited supply of free samples of XOFLUZA (baloxavir marboxil), a new one-dose treatment for influenza. Members may also receive XOFLUZA coupons for future purchases by eligible patients, where XOFLUZA treatment is appropriate.
II. Conference on Evidenced-based Research to Improve Clinical and Operational Outcomes for Worksite Clinic Conference
NAWHC, in partnership with the Center for Workplace Health, has received a grant from PCORI (the Patient Centered Outcome Research Institute created under the ACA) to expand employers’ knowledge of the research PCORI has funded to improve the clinical and operational outcomes in medical practices that can be applied to worksite clinics. An all-day symposium will be held in spring of 2020 for employers, clinic vendors, consultants and health providers to not only learn about PCORI research but also to recommend new areas for PCORI to examine that will increase the value of worksite health centers. Members are invited to be part of the project committee to identify the topics to be covered from PCORI and other evidenced-based research for the conference, as well as how to best format the program to select new areas of research.
III. Expanding Behavioral Health Services in Worksite Clinics
NAWHC has joined Loyola University, Chicago, IL in a project to develop the following:
Members are needed to in assist in the development of the survey, best practices and training program.
