The ScanSource Wellness Clinic will be open four days a week with a nurse
practitioner on staff. The Clinic will mimic a typical doctor’s office,
providing acute, chronic and preventative care; disease management programs;
health risk assessments; a flu clinic; consultation; basic laboratory
services; vaccine programs; urgent care, as well as patient advocacy and
education pertaining to health care claims from other providers.

“We are continuously looking for options that can lower healthcare costs for
our employees, as well as for ScanSource. The creation of this Wellness Clinic
will enable us to deliver convenient access to healthcare for our employees
and their spouses, while also helping ScanSource to better control rising
healthcare costs,” said Baur. “This Clinic is a direct result of our enhanced
focus on health and wellness, and we are very excited to offer this service to
our employees.”

“On-site employer clinics are an effective way to improve access to care and
the overall health of a company,” said GHS’ Riordan. “GHS’ Business Health
works with employers using claims data, health risk assessments and biometric
screenings to address their rising healthcare costs.We are looking forward to
further developing our partnership with ScanSource.”

GHS works with more than 30 companies, municipalities and universities in the
region on wellness plans customized to their own needs. Typically, 70 percent
of each company’s employees are diagnosed with one or more preventable health
problems – most often, pre-diabetes, diabetes and high blood pressure -- that
can then be addressed through targeted education and interventional programs.
The end result is dramatically improved clinical outcomes and lowered
absenteeism for the employee, as well as lowered healthcare costs and more
productivity for the company.

All services will be strictly confidential and abide by all HIPAA Privacy
Rules. For more information about ScanSource, Inc., please visit
