Businesses throughout the Boise, Idaho, area can now offer their employees the benefits of Nice Healthcare, with its comprehensive suite of in-home and virtual care designed to take the hassle out of healthcare.
Nice Healthcare makes it easier for employees of small and medium-sized businesses to access affordable, everyday care in the comfort of their home, on their schedule. The technology-enabled solution simplifies access to care and brings families a modernized version of the traditional house call.
FARE Idaho offers Nice Healthcare to its 200-plus members in recognition of the operational challenges and healthcare concerns faced by many independent restaurants, family farms, and food and beverage businesses.
“We know that attracting and retaining staff during the labor shortage is critical,” says Katie Baker, executive director, FARE Idaho. “As we head into the colder months and a busier healthcare season, we want to make sure that business owners and their staff have access to quality care that is easy and convenient, which results in maximizing the days of operation.”
Idaho workers must often contend with driving long distances to access healthcare, along with the inherent issues of the healthcare system: difficulty in coordinating care, confusion about benefits, where to turn and the fear of how much services will cost. Nice Healthcare was designed for communities like Boise, leading the company to support the local community with its direct care solution.
“Our approach streamlines access to care for busy families and upgrades the house call of the past with the addition of technology-enabled services,” says John Young, senior vice president of growth for Nice Healthcare. Young continues, “We are proud to work with FARE and the Idaho business community to support hard-working families with affordable and accessible care.”
Using the Nice Healthcare app, patients can schedule a same-day chat or video visit with a clinician, allowing them to get answers quickly to immediate questions. They can also schedule an in-home visit with a licensed and certified nurse practitioner or physician assistant, for one person or for multiple family members at the same time. Patients don’t go to a clinic – the clinic comes to them, often the same day.
Nice Healthcare saves the time and hassle of travel and scheduling by offering in-home blood draws, x-rays, and EKGs. The services are provided at a fixed monthly rate. They uniquely cover all household members, including family and non-family living at the address and kids away at college.
