- Types of health screenings (e.g. cholesterol) and method (e.g. finger stick or venipuncture)
- Marketing campaign to promote program to employees
- Customization of informed consent form
- Data to be collected
- Dates and times for clinics
- Transmission of data to third parties
The program manager contacts each client site to schedule a convenient date and time for the clinic. For sites with multiple shifts, the program manager will work to schedule times that will accommodate all shifts. Each client’s site coordinator will receive a confirmation document once the clinic date and forecast is finalized.
After clinic dates and times are established, the program manager educates the client site coordinator about the program, and provides a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document to address employee questions.
The program manager works with the client site coordinator to design the campaign that will be used to promote the clinic to employees.
The program manager provides the client site coordinator with a manual that explains program procedures, logistical and set up requirements, copies of forms to be used at the clinic, and information on the online appointment system.
The program manager monitors quality by contacting the client site coordinator and the Summit Health team leader on the day of the clinic. If any improvement opportunities are identified, the program manager implements the enhancements immediately and incorporates them into future clinics.
The program manager updates the client on the status of each clinic including participation forecasts, and results for completed clinics.
At the end of the clinic, the program manager provides an aggregate and satisfaction survey report.
