As the world has adjusted to changes during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, employers are handling workers’ compensation claims differently. Rather than risking exposure through a doctor’s office visit, employees want to connect with health care professionals from the privacy of their own homes.
Church Mutual is pleased to partner with Concentra Telemed®1 in bringing you the first telemedicine product designed specifically for workers’ compensation injuries. Employees can use their computers, tablets or smartphones to connect with providers via video conferencing for diagnosis and treatment of relatively minor injuries. The program gives them immediate access to occupational health specialists without forcing them to sit in a waiting room crowded with other patients.
Employees can use telemedicine to seek treatment for the following injuries:
Grade I/II upper/lower extremity strains/sprains
Minor neck and back strains/sprains
They can also undergo virtual physical therapy to treat sprains and strains and repetitive use injuries.
If a telemedicine patient requires in-person care, they can continue treatment at a nearby Concentra medical facility with minimal delay. They receive the benefit of telemedicine without giving up the option of hands-on care. In this age of COVID-19 return-to-work evaluations, employees also have the convenience of resuming their normal activities without needing to wait in a long line.
