SRA International Inc. in
SRA’s Nurse Advocacy Program launched more than 10 years ago—with one nurse—as a modest cost-containment strategy, helping employees manage complex medical situations. Today, the information technology services company has three RNs and an off-site medical director who provide routine and minor care for employees, as well as follow-up and preventive guidance.
Health staff salaries comprise the lion’s share of the program’s cost, says Kay Curling, director of work/life solutions. Incidental expenses, including liability insurance and equipment, add up to less than $175,000 a year.
The company recoups that—and more—in health care cost and productivity savings, not to mention employees’ appreciation.
