Premise Health is a leading worksite health company. Its worksite health model is designed to achieve better patient engagement through the delivery of quality healthcare and wellness programs that sustainably improve health outcomes of worksite and distributed workforces. Premise Health operates over 500 onsite health centers, pharmacies, and fitness centers in 46 states and two U.S. territories.
21stMD is a virtual platform for health advocacy, wellness consulting and telemedicine patient care.
Combining her roles at Premise Health with her love of technology, Dr. Griffith is currently exploring the use of telemedicine as a tool to expand delivery of integrative primary care. The occupational setting is a natural access point to reach a large percentage of working Americans. Nearly 30% of companies with more than 5,000 employees have onsite or near site clinics offering some type of primary care.
“The confluence of integrative medicine, large employer on-site clinics, and telemedicine is a natural one,” Dr. Griffith explains. She believes the synergistic potential for increased access, improved outcomes and cost savings is substantial.
