Justifying the Existence of Your Occupational Health Clinic
In many clinics, occupational health professionals are struggling to justify their daily activities. In the face of ever-shrinking budgets and pressure from various stakeholders, quantifying and proving the impact of occupational health programs is a constant battle, particularly for those saddled with outdated and archaic record systems. This struggle has always been central to the practice of occupational health – how can you justify the cost of your programs in terms that make sense from a financial point of view?
In this webinar, Medgate Occupational Health expert Dr. Mary Anne Alexander discusses the difficulties that many clinics face in their daily practices, and highlights some keys ways that justifying your clinic’s activities can be made easier and more effective.
