WorkLife AssistantA WorkLife Concierge Can Help

Imagine a physician who an hour before going into a lengthy surgery discovers her after-school nanny has the flu. She can’t reach any friends or family members who can step in. Who is going to pick her child up from school?

When this happened to a surgeon in Minneapolis, her supervisor suggested she use WorkLife Concierge (formerly known as Physician Concierge), a time-savings virtual concierge service provided as a benefit of their Physician Wellness Resources program. WorkLife Concierge helps with daily living tasks such as this situation.

She spoke to a WorkLife Concierge representative who suggested a bonded licensed babysitter who could pick the child up, bring her home and stay there until her mother was out of surgery. The WorkLife Concierge coordinated to pick up keys and consent forms for delivery to the school and babysitter. The child was picked up, cared for and the surgery went forward as scheduled.

Physicians and providers have a lot on their plates and very little time to deal with life's daily challenges. Much can be delegated to a WorkLife Concierge to help minimize distractions and allow them to focus on patient care. This service can also help  physicians and providers tend to the really important personal tasks only they can handle - like spending quality time with family or recharging their own "batteries" to develop greater resiliency.

This is just one example how a WorkLife Concierge helped.
