Through the use of targeted strategies, in-depth analyses, and clinical tools including health risk appraisals, predictive modeling, population risk analysis, and disease management, our clinical team can help address health issues across your employee population — from the seemingly healthy to those with chronic conditions:
Behavioral health management: Buck's clinical team can provide an objective assessment of the mental health services that you are currently offering to your employees, and assist you in developing cost-effective programs that comply with the Federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and maximize savings in your total health care spend. Take a moment to learn how Buck conducted a thorough review and audit of a manufacturing company’s Employee Assistance Program’s clinical processes, capabilities, and outcomes.
Data analytics and interventions: Data analysis allows organizations to identify opportunities unique to their employee population and develop actionable steps that correspond to their culture and financial landscape. Buck starts with statistical data and a comprehensive understanding of a company's culture and its members' tolerance for risk, and then applies clinical measures, utilization metrics, adherence or compliance evidence, and operational, humanistic, and financial factors to develop a systematic approach to interventions and the creation of an accountable culture of health that ensures effective outcomes.
On-site clinic strategies and analyses: On-site clinics and health care services at the workplace are a proven approach to positively impacting population health and delivering cost-effective solutions in the right circumstances. They require careful modeling, vendor evaluation, and ongoing management, and sometimes the creation of an oversight team that represents the needs and interests of multiple plan sponsors.
Buck can perform feasibility studies to determine whether an on-site clinic is right for your employee population and support the business case for developing an on-site clinic. We can also assist in vendor selection, contracting, implementation, and ongoing management, assure compliance with local, state, and federal laws, advise on appropriate services, staffing, hours of operations, etc., incorporate wellness, health management, and pharmacy with the on-site clinic to ensure the best possible outcomes and provide clinical expertise to help evaluate cost-effective programs.
Pharmacy benefits consulting: When used wisely and administered efficiently, prescription drugs can reduce absenteeism, improve productivity, and control overall plan costs. If not managed well, they can drain financial resources and undermine the return on investment of an entire benefits program. Buck can help you navigate the dynamic and complex pharmacy benefit marketplace by negotiating competitive pharmacy rates and best-in-class provisions for your contract, benchmarking your plan's performance against best-practice standards, and providing you with clinical expertise to help evaluate high quality, cost-effective programs.
