Many workplace injuries can be effectively evaluated and conservatively managed on-site. Through remote access to a team of medical providers skilled at evaluating work-related injuries, workers receive expert, real-time advice regarding optimal management approaches for a given injury.
Based on the provider’s assessment, workers will either be treated conservatively on-site or referred to an appropriate off-site clinic for further evaluation depending on the severity of the injury. If an injury is appropriate for on-site treatment, the case management team works to ensure optimal outcomes by providing detailed, conservative treatment instructions for the patient.
In addition, the team schedules regular follow-up of the injured worker to monitor progress, modify treatment as needed, and allow for the best possible outcomes.
In the event that injuries are more severe or require a more detailed evaluation, the case management team helps guide the worker to the appropriately qualified health care facility for expedited care and specialty consultation as warranted.
Some benefits of a medical case management team for your worksite include:
- Access to qualified industrial medical staffing services providers at any time for remote evaluation of injured workers
- Expert advice from providers skilled in managing injured workers conservatively onsite where it is appropriate
- Targeted and expedited off-site referral for more significant injuries
