Injury Triage and Medical Management
It’s 2 a.m.— an employee has just been injured, and someone needs to decide what to do next. Can the injury be managed with simple first aid? Is watchful waiting indicated? Does the employee need to be sent to urgent care or the emergency department? It’s important to get it right, and that’s why companies rely on WorkSTEPS Injury Triage and Medical Management to help them determine the best course of action for employee injuries or illnesses. Whether your company doesn’t have an onsite medical clinic, or you need injury triage support to supplement your clinic staff when there is no medical professional on site, our team of trained and experienced clinicians can provide 24/7 pre-claim telephonic injury assessment, so you can rest easy knowing injured employees will receive the right level of care. WorkSTEPS Injury Triage and Medical Management will help you:
- Avoid costs associated with care that is more than necessary to address an employee’s injury
- Make sure off-site care referrals are to providers who will provide high quality, appropriate care
- Reduce claims, costs, and litigation due to uninformed decision-making
