Renewed Interest in Onsite and Near-site Clinics Podcast

Bending the cost curve

Paladina Health Vice President of National Business Development, Karen Hjerleid, explains why employers and benefit advisers are increasingly looking at onsite and near-site clinics as a means of bending the trend of rising healthcare costs and poor outcomes. 


Hjerleid explores some of the root causes of our healthcare cost crisis and the impact—or non-impact—of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on reversing this trend. She explains how rising costs have led to a renewed interest in employer-sponsored health clinics and how these clinics themselves are evolving from an initial focus on occupational health to the current Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model.

Plan advisers can learn about what types of organizations are most likely to benefit from onsite and near-site clinics, how empowering primary care providers has been proven to reduce costs and how improved data access and sharing can lead to innovations in clinical treatment and disease management.


  • How the fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement model has negatively impacted primary care delivery, healthcare spending and overall health outcomes
  • How the role of onsite clinics is changing
  • The importance of including dependents in onsite/near-site plan design
  • How the PCMH model impacts cost and care quality
  • What size organization can benefit from onsite or near-site clinics
  • The benefits of robust data sharing between clinics and carriers
