Diet and mental health are so closely connected that the gut is often called our “second brain.” Addressing the importance of food choices, especially during recovery, can help to optimize the mental wellbeing and resilience of injured employees.
Regardless of whether mental health is compensable in a state, a panel of experts at this year’s National Comp will explain why it pays to ensure that injured workers feel supported in their recovery journeys.
The rise of Big Data has allowed for the early identification of at-risk workers comp claims, but siloed data has long been an obstacle. Effective data sharing is now allowing workers comp professionals and providers to leverage data as a fundamental driving force to transform the injured workers experience – claims scoring is part of that transformation.
Taking action immediately after an on-the-job injury can return employees to work faster and limit the chances that an isolated injury will lead to further claims. Implementing intelligent case management is the first step.
