Telephonic Medical Case Management
Our telephonic case management programs are designed as early intervention, short term injury management programs designed specifically to facilitate rapid return to work.
Working in collaborative partnership with the physician, employee, employer, and carrier, our nurse case managers assist in early and appropriate management of medical care and disability for an injured employee.
Immediately upon notification, our expert telephonic case managers work to establish claimant advocacy and ensure that medically appropriate care is provided to claimants while focusing on reducing medical and indemnity costs. All cases are aggressively managed to meet the injured worker’s health needs while promoting quality, cost effective outcomes. Services typically start during the acute phase of the injury and at the beginning of a claim for a period of 30-90 days. Program offerings are customizable to meet our clients industry specific needs and Field Case Manager services may be utilized when on-site intervention is required.
The benefits and cost savings in closing workers’ compensation cases as early as possible are substantial.

- Reduction of cost associated with Medical Case Management

The bottom line to “early intervention” is earlier treatment resulting in better medical and return-to-work outcomes.
