A Patient Centered Approach: The Value of Early Intervention
Redesigning the workers’ compensation claims process to be more patient-focused and supportive of injured employees can have a positive effect on employee health outcomes and employer spending. A well-trained, multidisciplinary team offering immediate assistance and patient advocacy allows injured employees to get quality care and compassion when they need it. In addition to reducing costs for employers by improving outcomes and minimizing indemnity claims, it improves morale by letting employees know they are more than a number on a ledger. Modern technologies, such as the web and mobile devices are key to facilitating the communication and coordination this patient-centered model requires.
