Mecklenburg County selects OurHealth for near-site clinic network

Indianapolis-based primary care clinic provider adds to growing Charlotte MyClinic Network

CHARLOTTE (October 16, 2018) – Mecklenburg County today announced an expanded partnership with Indianapolis-based OurHealth, the nation’s largest near-site healthcare clinic network for employers. The County joins Belk and the City of Charlotte.

OurHealth will provide a full suite of primary care services, including wellness screens, physicals, acute care and health coaching for the more than 10,000 employees, non-Medicare retirees and their dependents covered on the County’s medical plan. Mecklenburg is North Carolina’s most populous county with more than 1 million residents.

The partnership adds to OurHealth’s growing presence in the Charlotte metropolitan area and to its roster of strong municipal clients, which today includes the City of Charlotte, the City of Indianapolis and the City of Fishers (Indiana). The company’s MyClinic network includes five clinic locations in Charlotte, seven in Indianapolis and three opening in Cincinnati in January 2019.

OurHealth is on a mission to save employers $1 billion in healthcare costs, and to date has saved its clients more than $140 million. The company is celebrated for its consistent approach to patient care, including bright and open clinics, waiting times of less than five minutes, appointments that average 20 – 40 minutes and a patient satisfaction score of 98%.

“Working in a state that understands the burden employers are under with rising healthcare costs and that values the delivery of quality care, transparency and affordability is a perfect match for our mission,” said co-founder and CEO Ben Evans. “The Charlotte MyClinic network began in 2016 with the City of Charlotte, and adding Mecklenburg County employees is a natural fit with our ability to provide excellent primary care services to the area’s government workers.”

OurHealth drives value for clients through customized primary care solutions, leveraging technology and data to learn each organization’s challenges and tailor programming to optimize results. Healthcare providers and clinical staff are empowered to spend quality time with each patient with a goal of creating individualized treatment plans to achieve greater patient success.

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

Last year, OurHealth patients lost a combined 33,000 pounds, 76,000 points of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and 2,000 points on hemoglobin A1C levels, which is the leading indicator for diabetes. Clients realized an average annual savings of 17 percent on healthcare costs, mostly in the form of reduced emergency room visits, savings on specialty referrals and reduced lab and medication costs.

OurHealth was founded in 2009 to solve three problems in the healthcare system: lack of access, poor health outcomes and unaffordable cost escalation for employees and employers.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, OurHealth expanded into North Carolina in 2016. In 2018, OurHealth announced the opening of its newest MyClinic network in Cincinnati. Its growing roster of clients includes the City of Charlotte, the City of Indianapolis, the City of Fishers, OneAmerica, CNO Financial Group and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

INDIANAPOLIS (July 30, 2018) – OurHealth, the nation’s largest near-site healthcare clinic network for employers, announced today it will open multiple clinics in Cincinnati to satisfy growing demand in the area.

OurHealth Data Team Uncovers more than $150 million in Potential Medicaid Savings; Wins Indiana Medicaid Data Challenge

October 25, 2017 – INDIANAPOLIS –  OurHealth, a leading provider of employer-based clinic solutions, leveraged its data analysis expertise to uncover more than $150 million in potential Medicaid savings in the form of avoidable emergency department visits as part of the Indiana Chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s first-ever Indiana Medicaid Data Challenge. The analysis earned OurHealth’s team First Place in the one-day hackathon.

The Indiana Medicaid Data Challenge was designed to foster ubiquitous awareness and ongoing conversation about healthcare data and technology across a wide audience.

“At OurHealth we focus on improving the health and wellness of the populations we serve through our primary care services blended with technology,” said OurHealth Vice President of Data and Analytics, Brian Norris, who led the hackathon team. “If you think of the typical Emergency Department experience, a person can spend hours going through the process. This leads to a ton of lost productivity and a much higher cost of care.”

As part of its winning entry, the OurHealth data team utilized Emergency Department data sets containing over $500 million worth of emergency spend over the previous 5 years. Seeking the answer to the question of how much of this spend was potentially avoidable, the team utilized the NYU probabilistic decision tree algorithm, the AHRQ Clinical Classification System, and more than two dozen data sets.

The team’s analysis – presented in an interactive infographic via Tableau – revealed that more than $150 million over the 5 years’ worth of potential ED visits which would have been better served by primary care and another potential $100 million or more of those by non-emergent acute care. The OurHealth data team’s First Place prize carries a $1,000 prize which will be donated to Second Helpings, an Indianapolis-based food charity.

“The team decided to donate our winnings to Second Helpings because good health starts with a good meal,” Norris said.
