22 Jan FetchMD Addresses Employee Absenteeism with On-Demand Urgent Care
With flu and cedar pollen allergies at their peak, all the sneezing, coughing and germ spreading can put a serious dent in employee productivity. Employers recognize the need for a better, more affordable healthcare experience that increases productivity and decreases absenteeism. On-demand healthcare services like FetchMD is a growing trend that’s addressing this billion-dollar problem.
