Who needs it?
Healthcare providers in many states are required by the local Department of Health (NYSDOH) to meet certain screening requirements for their employees. People working in hospitals, home care agencies, assisted living facilities, and other patient centered jobs must be given medical clearances in order to be fully compliant under state law. In all cases however, it is the employer’s responsibility to keep up-to-date records of each of their employees’ medical clearances.
Medical clearances must be given to employees both at the start of their employment as well as annually in order for an organization to be in full compliance with NYSDOH regulation. In order to assure themselves that all of their employees are screened in a timely manner, many companies will opt for an on-site medical clearance package from Mobile Health.

What happens during it?
Getting Mobile Health’s on-site medical clearances done at your organization is simple process that begins by submitting an On-site Medical Clearance Request Form. Our account managers can help review your organization’s needs and arrange an on-site visit at the best time for your organization.
Mobile Health providers will arrive at your organization at the date of the event with all of the supplies necessary for on-site medical clearances.
