Open Source Wellness offers Virtual or In-Person services for your clinical, educational, employee, housing, student, or community population
We partner with hospital systems, clinics, payers, housing developers, universities, employers, and other communities to deliver the OSW model to their constituents. We offer groups customized to specific populations, and we have funding solutions to help make this work affordable and even revenue-positive.
All OSW programs are currently being delivered virtually, and we are growing rapidly. Please contact us to explore virtual solutions for your community in the time of COVID-19.
We Partner in Three Ways:
1. Contract with
Open Source Wellness to fully staff and deliver programming
2. License and deliver the OSW model: receive training, technical assistance, and ongoing support to operate the model with your own staff
3. Receive consulting and training customized for your organization's needs and resources. Focus areas may include:
1) Delivering outstanding Virtual Group Medical Visits
2) Making your wellness/health behaviors program experiential
3) Designing a new integrative program
Funding Open Source Wellness in the clinical healthcare context
This model works best when combined with a Virtual or In-person Group Medical Visit (GMV). This supports clinical care integration, while making the implementation revenue-positive for your clinic.
Our team of health coaches and peer leaders facilitate the weekly experiential OSW group, via Zoom or in-person. A clinic provider participates in the weekly program and pulls patients aside for individual check-ins. This provider then bills insurance for each patient, for an individual visit in the context of a Group Medical Visit.
For virtual Group Medical Visits, the Open Source Wellness team can provide the Zoom platform and facilitation (leveraging breakout rooms to support individual visits with your medical provider), or can join your existing virtual visits platform.
The Open Source Wellness model radically amplifies (often doubles) the clinical productivity of a single provider, generating more revenue than is needed to fund the OSW program.
Financial example, given an FQHC in California (costs unique to your location may vary based on reimbursement rates, capitation structures, etc.):
Average visits per 4-hour clinical session (one provider, individual visits):
Patients scheduled: 10
Patients seen (due to no-shows): 7.5 average
Average visits billed during Open Source Wellness Group Medical Visit (one provider, Group Medical Visit): 16.2
16.2 OSW GMV patient average
– 7.5 Individual patient average
8.7 additional billed visits
Given a reimbursement rate of ~$250/visit:
8.7 X $250/visit = $2,175 per week
$2,175 X 50 weeks/year (given holidays) = $108,750 per year
The cost of operating Open Source Wellness in the clinical setting for one year is $70-90k.
This enables a clinic or hospital system to implement Open Source Wellness and improve clinical outcomes, reduce ED visits, and improve patient satisfaction – all while generating extra revenue.
