The most cost-effective solution on the market

OnCare is priced significantly less than traditional office visits and is one of the most competitively priced employer solutions in the Upper Midwest market today. You pay a low per employee, per month (PEPM) fee to provide unlimited use of the OnCare platform to covered members. Medical visits are provided at no cost to members and no claims are filed. Care utilization is shifted from urgent care and primary care, resulting in a direct savings to your organization.

Adherence to nationally established clinical guidelines

OnCare only treats patients when it is medically safe and meets Fairview’s high clinical quality standards. OnCare is staffed by active Fairview urgent and primary care providers who deliver consistently high-quality care that use the same nationally established clinical guidelines that would be followed in a brick-and-mortar clinic. To support the continuity of care, OnCare creates an electronic medical record, regardless of if the employee was a previous Fairview patient.

A strategy with direct impact to your bottom line

We will collaborate with you to create a program that best meets your employees’ needs while optimizing your organization’s OnCare investment.

How it works

Your employees log in to your custom website from any computer or smartphone and share their symptoms by answering a series of questions. Input takes just minutes. They receive a treatment plan within an hour from a trusted Fairview provider. If a prescription is needed, it is sent to the pharmacy of their choice. Convenient and cost-effective OnCare is available 24-hours-a-day, every day, including holidays.

Most common conditions treated

We’ve been careful to select only health conditions that can be safely diagnosed and treated online. Protocols have been diligently established to follow accepted, evidence-based standards of care. Here are some of the most commonly treated:

  • Acne
  • Burns (minor)
  • Cold, sinus infection, or sore throat
  • Constipation and/or diarrhea (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Eczema or dermatitis
