How a Worksite Health Center Can Provide Socially Informed Care
Health is more than a collection of genetic and behavioral factors. While healthcare providers are positioned to solve medical problems, long-term health outcomes are heavily dependent on the social, economic, and environmental context of a patient’s life.[i] [ii] Studies show a link between these factors and the risk for chronic conditions like asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and depression.[iii] In other words, health is strongly influenced by what happens outside of the doctor’s office.

At the end of each year, we reflect back on all that we have accomplished. As in years past, our patients and their personal health transformation journeys inspire us. Our clinical ambassadors make it their goal to meet patients where they are in taking steps towards better health. This year, with the support of trusted primary care clinicians across Marathon nation, our patients took the reins of their health to live better lives. Whether they overcame a hurdle, went out of their comfort zone, or learned more about themselves in the process, each patient has a story to tell, and we are there for them each step of the way.

We believe in a radically different philosophy of healthcare. We believe the best path to sustained health improvements occur when the patient is in charge. When you empower people to take control of their health, they develop new health behaviors, make smarter healthcare decisions, improve their health, and lower costs. It’s a simple equation that yields powerful results.
