||The economic value of automotive occupational health services: Business metrics for performance management
||Feb. 2008, Vol.50, No.2, p.138-145. 18 ref.
||An important automobile manufacturer in the United States investigated the financial impact of the occupational health clinics located within their plants and carried out a comparison of these clinics between plants. This allowed the firm to make business decisions regarding services offered and responsibilities assigned to the clinics. Models were developed to value the services provided by clinics. The estimated utilization and dollar value of occupational health services provided by each clinic were compared and ranked to establish internal benchmarks. The results show a significant assumption of non-clinical but essential duties by health clinic staff, especially by physicians. This information will allow the firm to better manage the occupational health clinics to support business objectives.
