The Heart of the Matter: Healthy Hearts for Healthy Claim Outcomes
White Paper Summary
What if you could help prevent chronic health conditions and unhealthy behaviors that contribute to massive employer costs? You can – by getting to the “heart” of the matter.
In examining the trends associated with comorbidities and overall claim costs, one common denominator rises to the surface – heart health. It is central to so many of the recommendations and medical interventions our nurses encourage, particularly for those claims with comorbidities.
Encouraging collaboration with the injured employee for their personal health and workers’ compensation injury can have several benefits:
• Assists in mitigating claims costs
• Helps improve the overall health of the injured worker
• Expedites and optimizes claim resolution
The bottom line? By empowering heart health in the injured workers we support, our nurse case managers are helping improve lives far beyond the claims they are managing. They are promoting a lifetime of healthy habits.
