Care for your employees?
Reduce the cost of sick leaves and improve accessibility to medical assistance! MinuDoc has created contemporary on-demand doctor services for companies and their employees. They are designed to bring modern medical care to the office or home with just a few clicks and when the concerns are the greatest.
Indeed, we do have our family physicians, but their working hours and availability is limited. MinuDoc is there for you on weekends and after hours, on public holidays and on business trips. In addition, we speak Russian, English, French, and Finnish and every consultation derives from your personal electronic medical history.
Which employer problems would MinuDoc address?
Opening sick leaves every day, also on weekends and public holidays
Our GP-s are available each day until 22. During video visit the doctor will assess client’s health and if necessary, will issue a sick leave up to 3 days
Limiting cost from sick leaves and work delays
Prompt reaction on health problems will help to avoid subsequent more complicated health problems. Lower number of sick days lowers employer costs related to compensating these leaves and/or finding alternative workforce.
As per MinuDoc experience, proper intervention helps to reduce number of sick days by 30%. As in Estonia, there is on average 13 sick days per employee annually, 30% decrease in those numbers would save 1600 hours of work for a company with 50 employees. As an example, for a software development company that would equal to 100,000 EUR in sales revenues.
Improving access to multilanguage medical assistance
MinuDoc doctors can speak in addition to Estonian in Russian, English, Finnish, French. By that, they are able to offer assistance in native language to a number of foreign employees who otherwise would struggle getting doctor appointments.
Employee taking sick leave on the behalf of children
An employee can contact either our GP or pediatrician to consult on the health of his/her children. Prompt intervention will avoid potentially lengthy stays at home with sick children.
What are the advantages of Minudoc video consultation compared to a regular visit to a doctor?
Our doctors are accessible every day until 10PM, including weekends and public holidays.
At least 60% of primary care health problems can be solved remotely. An employee can consult from home or work on-demand when the problem occurs. An employee can access the service also when travelling, which is relevant for frequent travellers.
There’s no need to waste precious time on commuting to doctor and waiting in line.
Video visits are less expensive that physical visits to private clinic.
Private health coverage is becoming as common as other benefits offered by a company. Needless to say, access to public healthcare will become more and more challenging, and employers who react on this trend and offer alternatives to their employees are also more competitive in finding ones.
When can I get help from virtual doctor?
At least 60% of visits to family physician does not call for a physical check-up to diagnose the problem. These are the cases (for instance, cough, sneezing, feeling sick, fever, rashes etc) when doctor can help remotely. These are however the most common symptoms that occupy doctors. As an employer you can meet your employees half way and offer contemporary and convenient service, which will address the vast majority of health needs of your employees.
In addition to consultation, MinuDoc physicians can:
Open sick leaves (up to 3 days)
Issue or renew prescriptions
If deems necessary, issue referral letter
In case the information is not sufficient, doctor can guide to pass additional analyses and will contact employee with further consultation after those analyses are presented.
