NAWHC DUES BILLING
Currently, NAWHC invoices members for dues renewals on the month the member joined the organization. In an effort to streamline the membership process, we will invoice membership renewals 60 days prior to renewal. A member may move their renewal date to accommodate their fiscal year or budget timing. When you receive your invoice, let us know if you want to change the date selected for you. The bundle administrator for the group may also add/delete/change any member listed. This can be done at any time.

Finding the Right Clinic Provider: Interviewing Keys
One of the key factors determining the success or failure of an onsite clinic is the quality, compassion and personality of the physicians and nurses providing the care. An employer-sponsor must be part of the interviewing process to ensure potential clinic providers fit into the culture of the organization, understanding the job tasks, the languages and work environment. This webinar is intended to provide key insights into finding the right people to serve your population.

Measuring the Performance of Health & Wellness Centers
At its September 7th Annual Forum, NAWHC released its new Guidebook on Measuring the Performance of Health and Wellness Centers.” The Guidebook includes definitions, strategies, metrics and case studies on measuring performance of new, mature, small and large worksite health centers. There are sections on utilization, financial, clinical and satisfaction performance sets. The Guidebook is FREE for NAWHC members. Non-members may purchase it for $125.00.
Vendor Landscape Guide
One of the key needs/issues faced by employers is finding the right worksite onsite or near-site clinic partner to contract with to design, hire staff, manage and deliver quality and cost-effective services to their covered populations. A good vendor or provider partner can reduce costs and absenteeism, while improving employee health and productivity. To address this challenge, the National Association of Worksite Health Centers (www.nawhc.org) is partnering with KLAS Research in a project to compile an independent report on the strengths and weaknesses of worksite health vendors that you may work with or may be considering.
NAWHC invites you to confidentially participate by highlighting improvements you would like to see in the industry and to share your feedback on your worksite health vendor(s) at this link. KLAS will then follow-up to briefly discuss your experience. Each employer organization that participates in the study will receive a complimentary copy of the key findings and will have opportunity to join a NAWHC/KLAS webinar discussing the research and learnings.
If you have any questions about the study, please contact KLAS directly:firstname.lastname@example.org.
