Social Determinants of Health Drive Outcomes & Costs for Injured Workers

Recent studies show that 80 percent of health outcomes are determined by non-clinical factors. Given that, it only makes sense to examine the social determinants of health and their impact on recovery and return-to-work.

White Paper Summary

In the last five years terms such as advocacy, engagement, coaching, and even “whole-person approach” have been much talked about within workers’ compensation — for good reason.

The discussion around a whole-person approach generates a number of important questions. For one, how do we support the whole person by offering one comprehensive solution? And what part do digital health programs play in meeting the needs of injured workers and improving outcomes as demonstrated by reduced disability durations and optimal recovery? Further, how do we deliver a personalized experience and meet injured workers where they are in their journey to recovery?
