In medical news:

A new survey by Mercer LLC found that worksite health clinics are trending among large employers as a means of reining in health care costs, reducing lost productivity and improving the overall health of their employees. Results show that eighty-five percent of 134 employers that provide general medical services to employees through on-site health clinics confirmed that they have seen some measure of success in meeting certain performance goals. Eighty-seven percent of employers polled said their on-site clinics were “successful” or “very successful” when measured by employee satisfaction, while 73 percent of employers said the same of their clinics when measured by their utilization rates. Employers also reported a reduction in total lost work days, positive changes in modifiable employee health risks, and lower overall medical costs.
