Air Transport Services Group Partners With OurHealth, Reopens Its Onsite Primary Care Clinic For Employees

The aircraft leasing and transportation services provider is the latest company to offer onsite and near-site primary care services to employees

CINCINNATI (January 2, 2020) – Through a partnership with Indianapolis-based OurHealth, Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has reopened an onsite primary care clinic at their Wilmington Air Park facility. Nearly 1,000 employees and their family members will have access to the renovated health center as well as four other locations throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.

Named OurHealth @ Wilmington Air Park, the onsite clinic begins operations today and will provide comprehensive primary and immediate care medical services to covered ATSG employees and their families.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing this important benefit back,” said Joe Hete, Chief Executive Officer at ATSG. “We’ve experienced first-hand the impact that accessible, convenient and high-quality care has on people’s wellbeing and overall quality of life. We believe that taking care of our employees is the right thing to do and lowers their out of pocket healthcare cost—so it’s a win-win all around.”

OurHealth @ Wilmington Air Park

Joe Hete, ATSG Chief Executive Officer cuts the ribbon to signify the grand opening of OurHealth @ Wilmington Air Park, an onsite primary care clinic for covered ATSG employees and their families.

OurHealth entered the Cincinnati market in early 2019 with the launch of its industry-leading system of near-site primary care clinics, called the MyClinic network, which includes locations in Springdale, Kings Mills, Green Township and at Fourth and Main Streets in downtown Cincinnati. In addition to their onsite clinic at Wilmington Air Park, covered ATSG employees and their families will have access to all four Cincinnati MyClinic locations.

ATSG is the latest addition to OurHealth’s growing presence in Southwest Ohio. Last month OurHealth announced a partnership with Delhi Township, Ohio. Other Cincinnati area clients include First Financial Bank, Rumpke and Hamilton County, Ohio.

“We’re excited to be partnering with ATSG to provide care for their employees and their families,” said Ben Evans, OurHealth Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder. “We’re confident they’ll love the experience, and we can’t wait to build relationships that will have a lasting impact on their health, and of course their bottom line.”

Employers are attracted to OurHealth’s model for three key reasons — improved access to care for their employees and their dependents, independence from any hospital system or network allowing for unbiased referrals and robust reporting capabilities that allow business owners to easily understand their return on investment.

OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs. The company is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $180 million. In 2019 alone OurHealth produced a total of $39 million in employer savings.

The company takes a patient-focused approach to care, including waiting room times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 to 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98 percent. OurHealth clients include a wide range of employers of all sizes and industries, including Anthem, Harris Teeter, CNO Financial Group and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

OurHealth Opens New Location at Green Township, Adds Delhi Township to Its Growing Roster of Clients

Near-site primary care clinics provide convenient, affordable healthcare to members via their employer-sponsored health plans

CINCINNATI (December 11, 2019) – OurHealth, the industry-leading near-site healthcare clinic network for employers, today announces the opening of its fourth Cincinnati location in Green Township as well as a new partnership with Delhi Township, Ohio.

The healthcare provider will offer a full suite of primary care services for Delhi Township’s nearly 100 plan-eligible employees and their covered spouses and dependents, including wellness screens, physicals, sick care and health coaching.

OurHealth entered the Cincinnati market in early 2019 with the launch of its Cincinnati MyClinic network, which includes locations at Springdale Town Center, The Shoppes at Kings Mills, and downtown Cincinnati at Fourth and Main Streets. The fourth location – MyClinic @ Green Township – is now open on the westside of Cincinnati.

OurHealth MyClinic @ Green Township

In addition to its expanding network of clinic locations, OurHealth is growing its roster of Cincinnati-based clients with the addition of Delhi Township. OurHealth already has several established partnerships with local employers, including First Financial Bank, Rumpke and Hamilton County, Ohio.

“The MyClinic model made the most sense for our employees. Now with a west side location to complement their multiple clinic locations around Cincinnati, our people have the option to choose what’s most convenient for them,” said Melanie K. Hermes, Delhi Township HR Director.  “We believe that removing the barriers to healthcare will truly create healthier outcomes.”

The MyClinic network significantly lowers the barrier to entry by allowing employers to gain immediate access to a network of primary care clinics that are conveniently located within a 10-minute drive of the employee’s home or office.

Employers are attracted to OurHealth’s model for three key reasons — improved access to care for their employees and their dependents, independence from any hospital system or network allowing for unbiased, cost-effective referrals and robust reporting capabilities so business owners can easily understand their return on investment.

OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs.

“We’re excited to welcome Delhi Township to the Cincinnati MyClinic network,” said Ben Evans, OurHealth CEO and Co-founder. “We’re confident they’ll love the experience, and we can’t wait to make an immediate impact on their employees’ health, and of course their bottom line.”

OurHealth is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $180 million. The company takes a patient-focused approach to care, including same and next-day appointments, waiting room times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 to 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98 percent.

In 2018, OurHealth patients lost a combined 40,000 pounds and 32,000 points of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. OurHealth clients include a wide range of employers of all sizes and industries, including Anthem, Harris Teeter, CNO Financial Group and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

OurHealth Patient Success: Michael’s Story

Michael Griswold of Charlotte struggled with obesity for most of his adult life. Years of unhealthy eating and a lack of regular exercise took its toll and Michael eventually reached upwards of 300 pounds. He knew his lifestyle put him at risk for diabetes, but he rarely sought medical care unless he was sick.

Michael could access OurHealth’s Charlotte MyClinic network as an employee benefit through his job with Mecklenburg County in North Carolina. The County incentivizes employees who complete an annual biometric screening, so he scheduled an appointment. The results ultimately confirmed his fear—Michael had Type 2 diabetes.

His hemoglobin A1c measured 7.6 percent. A hemoglobin A1c test correlates to a patient’s blood sugar over the previous 90 days. A reading above 6.5 percent indicates diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association.

“There was initial shock,” Michael says. “It was a realization that, ‘Okay, so it’s real now and I have to put together a plan to address it.’”

Michael was prescribed diabetes medication to help control his blood sugar and during a follow-up appointment, OurHealth physician Dr. Lloyd Bridges suggested he try health coaching. That’s where he first met Nate Littlefield, a health coach at OurHealth.

“From the outset, I wanted to set some phase goals that were realistic and attainable,” he says. “The first one was, ‘Let’s get to 10 pounds,’ and then that happened really quick. It just melted off.”

Nate helped Michael establish a regular workout routine, coached him on healthy meal planning and taught him how to count calories using an app on his phone. Michael was determined to get his health back on track and took Nate’s advice to heart.

“Nate has been really great,” Michael says. “He was willing to listen to what had happened or the challenges or successes that I’d run into since we last talked and then offer some strategic feedback on how to either overcome those challenges or offer that pat on the back for the successes.”

Michael says his regular meetings with Nate helped him stay accountable to his goals. Since starting health coaching, Michael has lost over 70 pounds, he’s shed 10 inches off his waist, his A1c has returned to a normal level and he no longer takes diabetes medication. He essentially reversed his diabetes through healthy lifestyle changes.

Michael is fully committed to his new lifestyle and has even signed up for a couple of 5k races in the near future. He credits his success to his own determination to make healthy changes, and the personalized, one-on-one support he received from Nate.

OurHealth relocates headquarters to downtown Indianapolis amidst rapid business growth

Employer-sponsored clinic provider moves its headquarters operations to Indianapolis’ Market Tower building 

INDIANAPOLIS – Building on more than a decade of operations in Marion County, OurHealth today announces the relocation of its corporate headquarters from the city’s northside to Market Tower in the heart of downtown Indianapolis’ business district. The company is hiring for dozens of open positions, including finance, member relations, IT and engineering roles at its headquarters. 

Founded in 2009, OurHealth’s system of industry-leading near-site clinics, called the MyClinic network, significantly lowers the barrier to entry by allowing employers to gain immediate access to a network of primary care clinics. The company operates primary care clinics in six states, including Indiana where it has been headquartered since its inception. OurHealth was formerly headquartered in OneAmerica Tower in downtown Indianapolis but it has been on the city’s northside since 2017.  

“We’re thrilled to be back in the heart of the city’s business district,” said CEO, Ben Evans. “Downtown Indy is flourishing more than ever, which is a perfect match for OurHealth’s thriving culture. We’re excited about our growing business and this move represents an opportunity to attract top talent whose energy and passion for improving patient lives and saving employers money matches ours.”  

OurHealth, the nation’s largest near-site healthcare clinic network, has recently undergone rapid growth, highlighted by its expansion into Cincinnati, Ohio, earlier this year.  

In addition to expanding its clinic footprint, OurHealth has grown its client roster across all markets. Harris Teeter, a supermarket chain in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Hamilton County, Ohio, in Cincinnati both recently joined OurHealth’s networks. Other clients include the City of Indianapolis and Marion County, City of Charlotte, Anthem, First Financial Bank and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.  

OurHealth is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $160 million. The company takes a patient-focused approach to care, including waiting times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 – 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98 percent.  

 In 2018, OurHealth patients lost a combined 40,000 pounds and 32,000 points of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs.

OurHealth Patient Success: Lisa’s Story

Athletics have always been a big part of Lisa Herron’s life. She’s a former aerobics instructor, kickboxer and runner. In 2012 alone, Lisa completed six half-marathons.

But her genetics ultimately caught up with her. Over the last few years, Lisa underwent a foot surgery, followed by two cervical spine surgeries. She says it made it difficult to stay physically active.

In early 2019, Lisa started a job at OneAmerica Financial Partners in Indianapolis. She was due for her annual physical and could access OurClinic @ The Tower as a part of her employer benefits, so she scheduled a biometric screening. The results were a stark wake-up call.

“They didn’t come back favorably,” she says.

Lisa’s A1c measured 8 percent and her triglycerides measured over 500 mg/dl. An A1c reading above 6.5 percent indicates diabetes, while a triglyceride reading of 500 mg/dl falls in the “very high” range, according to the Mayo clinic.

Lisa had no idea she was at risk of diabetes. There’s a family history, but she says the thought never crossed her mind.

“It scared the daylights out of me,” she says. “But I wanted to live. In the past few months, I’ve lost four friends because of heart attacks and strokes, so it fueled me to be healthier.”

Lisa joined a diabetes support group and her benefits manager at OneAmerica encouraged her to try health coaching. That’s where she first met Debbie Richardson, a health coach with OurHealth.

Lisa was determined to change her lifestyle and get healthy. She began meeting regularly with Debbie and together they charted a healthy path forward that focused on lifestyle changes, not medication. She also joined a gym and started exercising several times per week.

Lisa says changing her diet was the hardest part.

“I love to cook, so I’ve had to reinvent the wheel of having healthier options,” she says. “Debbie’s guidance was that 90 percent of what goes on my plate needs to be vegetables with a clean protein.”

Lisa committed to eating only 1,600 calories per day and stuck with it. To help hold her accountable, Debbie helped her sync an app on her phone with her Fitbit so she could monitor her daily calorie intake.

Within three months of starting health coaching, Lisa’s A1c and triglycerides both dropped to a healthy measure (without the use of medication) and as an added bonus, she lost 30 pounds.

Lisa credits her success to the accountability and guidance she received from Debbie, and the support of her employer and the OurHealth clinic staff.

“She’s embraced the entire journey for me,” Lisa says. “The whole clinic and my employer more than wrapped themselves around me. It’s nice having the accessibility to have it done right here at our office building.”

Today, Lisa says she feels great and is full of energy. In May, she logged 100 miles on the treadmill. And her positive attitude has influenced friends and family to also make healthy lifestyle changes. Lisa’s mother recently lost 15 pounds while her boyfriend dropped 30 pounds.

“I’m trying to be a kick-ass 50-year-old,” she says, adding that she’s already signed up for the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon in 2020.

“This isn’t just a quick fix for me,” she says. “I have to own this destiny. That’s been my biggest takeaway from Debbie. This isn’t going to be three months and ‘Oh, look at what I did.’ Because of genetics and my age, this will be my lifestyle moving forward.”

Harris Teeter Selects OurHealth for Near-Site Clinic Solution

Supermarket chain is latest employer to join the Charlotte MyClinic network

CHARLOTTE (May 21, 2019) – OurHealth, the nation’s leading provider of near-site primary care clinics for employers, today announced a partnership with supermarket chain Harris Teeter.

OurHealth will provide a full suite of primary care services, including wellness screens, physicals, acute care and health coaching for the company’s more than 2,500 Charlotte-area associates and their covered dependents.

The partnership with Harris Teeter adds to OurHealth’s growing client roster, which includes the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and Belk Department Stores.

The MyClinic network significantly lowers the barrier to entry by allowing employers to gain immediate access to a network of primary care clinics that are conveniently located within a 10-minute drive of the employee’s home or office. OurHealth’s MyClinic network includes seven clinics in Indianapolis and three in Cincinnati.

“Being an incredible place to work and shop starts with having associates who feel their best and provide world class service to our shoppers,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Being healthy is a big part of that equation, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our valued associates primary care through OurHealth.”

Employers are attracted to OurHealth’s model for three key reasons — improved access to care for their employees and their dependents, independence from any hospital system or network allowing for unbiased referrals and robust reporting capabilities that allow business owners to easily understand their return on investment.

“We’re excited to welcome Harris Teeter to our growing Charlotte MyClinic network,” said Ben Evans, OurHealth CEO and co-founder. “Savvy businesses are actively working to make an immediate impact on their health spending, and our model has proven an effective solution for our Charlotte partners.”

OurHealth announced its planned expansion to the Cincinnati market in July 2018 and has since opened clinics at the Springdale Town Center and The Shoppes at Kings Mills. This month’s grand opening of its downtown location at Fourth and Main is the company’s third MyClinic in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area.

State of Indiana Opens Onsite Primary Care Clinic at Government Center

Government Center Clinic by OurHealth brings convenient, affordable onsite healthcare to more than 7,500 state employees.

INDIANAPOLIS — Through a partnership with Indianapolis-based OurHealth, the State of Indiana has opened an onsite clinic at the Indiana Government Center. More than 16,000 state employees and their family members live or work nearby. Government Center Clinic by OurHealth, which begins operations today, provides comprehensive primary and immediate care medical services to covered employees and their families.

“Indiana is making great strides to improve quality of life for Hoosiers – and that includes improving access to healthcare,” Gov. Eric J. Holcomb said. “Offering medical care when and where it is most convenient for employees not only makes for a better workplace, it supports overall wellness.”

Founded in 2009, OurHealth provides employer-sponsored onsite and near-site primary care clinics and wellness programming. The company’s primary care model is designed to address three factors – patient access, quantifiable health improvements and overall cost.

The model leverages technology and data to learn unique organizational challenges and inform custom healthcare solutions addressing the needs of each workforce. Each solution embraces the growing body of research confirming more focused time with patients leads to a higher standard of care, and in turn, predictable savings.

Clinic providers are empowered to spend quality time with each patient, which further enhances individualized treatment plans and results in greater patient success.

“OurHealth provides employees and their families with the healthcare they need, when and where they need it, all while saving them and their employers a lot of money,” said OurHealth co-founder and CEO, Ben Evans. “As an Indiana-based company, we’re thrilled to partner with the State of Indiana to improve the health of thousands of Hoosiers while also generating measurable savings for Indiana taxpayers.”

The company currently operates clinics in Indiana, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

OurHealth clients enjoy an average savings of 17 percent on health plan costs through better management of chronic conditions, ER avoidance and reduced lab and drug costs. The company’s Indiana clients include a wide range of employers, including CNO Financial Group, Ice Miller, the Indianapolis Airport Authority and the City of Indianapolis.

The onsite clinic is one of several enhancements this year that promote a healthy workforce and reduce healthcare costs while supporting the State’s emphasis on engagement through wellness and clinic services. Onsite and online wellness coaches are now available to covered employees and spouses throughout the state, part of a program that rewards employees with reduced premiums and other incentives when they complete best practices for proactively supporting good health. And the State now offers an interactive online platform, also in conjunction with OurHealth, which engages participants in wellness activities and competitions linked to healthy living and overall wellbeing.

In addition to these benefits, the State is continuing a heightened focus on mental health as a critical component of well-being by increasing employee access and options in 2019 for counseling sessions with licensed therapists under its employee assistance program.
