3 Ways Automation Benefits Key Stakeholders in Workers’ Comp Claims
White Paper Summary
In workers’ compensation, speed matters. The faster an injured worker gets connected to care, the sooner healing can begin. Historically, though, health care is riddled with barriers that hamper expediency.
Think about the last time you made a medical appointment.
Did you put off making the call, only to be met with an onerous phone tree when you finally did? Did you have to wait a month for your doctor’s next availability? How long did you wait in the office before you were seen?
These roadblocks become more problematic in the context of the workers’ comp system, which involves many more stakeholders and layers of approval. When done manually, referrals, authorizations and basic communication all represent opportunities for delay, which only impedes recovery.
Fortunately, advances in technology can help the workers’ comp industry minimize or even eliminate these barriers. Automation is helping to reduce stress for injured workers, enable providers to deliver care more efficiently, and free up care coordinators to get injured workers the care they need, when they need it.
