Concentra Health operates 300 health centers in 40 states as well as 250 workplace clinics. While workplace health clinics have traditionally provided work-related and urgent care services, those facilities are expanding their offerings to include primary care, health and wellness programs and coaching, and even initiatives aimed at workers' families. Concentra Health offers e-health records and employee health portal services to clients. The company is working on its next generation of e-health records for the organization and has introduced a new electronic health record for employer worksite health centers. Concentra is also building out a clinical IT roadmap to include a full continuity of care records. By utilizing this technology, Concentra said clients will have the option to give their employees the ability to send health information to their onsite health center prior to a visit, schedule visits, review lab results, answer health-related questionnaires, report work-related injuries and illnesses and communicate directly with health center physicians, all though an online, EHR portal. Medical information documented in the EHR can then be synced to the employee's own portal page, or can be shared with a personal health record, including Google Health, Microsoft HealthVault, or NoMoreClipboard.com. Concentra predicts that clients who utilize the worksite EHR technology will experience a decrease in employee health costs.
