Certain workplace necessities just became easier for employees seeking routine screenings and basic health care services thanks to a partnership between CVS MinuteClinic and Alere eScreen Occupational Health Network expanding access via participating locations.
Regular CVS patrons may already know that MinuteClinic, open seven days a week, is staffed by nurse practitioners or physician assistants. With the upgraded services, workers and prospective employee candidates at participating companies can now obtain work-required physicals, screenings, tests and immunizations at their local CVS store.
“MinuteClinic is pleased to partner with Alere eScreen to provide workplace health services to employers and their employees at times and locations that are convenient for them,” Sharon Vitti, MinuteClinic’s senior vice president and executive director, said.
All workers need to do is locate the nearest participating clinic — among 1,100 nationwide — online to obtain an “e-passport” for quick identification on-site.
“Alere is excited to be an enabling partner for MinuteClinic in their desire to dramatically improve the accessibility of workplace testing services,” Sanjay Malkani, Alere’s global president of toxicology, said. “With the Alere eScreen system already in place — and access to a broad services menu including biometric screening, DOT physicals, vaccinations and drug testing — MinuteClinic is poised to become a valuable workplace health destination for employers nationwide.”
