Axiom Medical Injury Case Management Services
Delayed injury reporting leads to costly outcomes for employers and employees alike. A delay of treatment by even a day, can result in extended recovery and increases the risk of an OSHA recordable outcome by 60%. Indirect costs include productivity loss, replacement worker training, and even overtime pay.
24/7 Nurse Triage
As a part of Injury Case Management, Axiom provides 24/7 nurse triage to support the injury outcome. Upon reporting the injury to Axiom’s 24/7 injury reporting hotline, the employee’s injury will be immediately assessed. Following review of the employee’s medical history, an employee treatment plan will be given.
Long-Term Case Management:
Axiom Medical’s long-term disability case management services are designed to assist those employees requiring extended-term care. Our case managers work closely with the employee, treating physician, and employer to develop an appropriate care plan that will aid in the recovery progression.
DART stands for “days away, restricted or transferred,” which is a safety metric for employers to determine employee absenteeism because of workplace injuries and illnesses. By utilizing our Total Employee Health Approach, Axiom Medical can help employers reduce their DART ratings from pre-employment through post-employment.
OSHA Impact (Reportability):
While not all injuries can be prevented, the way how they are managed matters. Unnecessary recordable outcomes due to overtreatment with prescription doses of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications or inappropriate physical therapy recommendations should be avoided. Paired with early injury reporting and immediate intervention, Axiom Medical significantly impacts the number of OSHA recordable outcomes.

They Said It!
I believe with confidence that we are reaching all of our expected goals by bringing Axiom on as an outsourced case management solution.
Axiom has helped us closely monitor the injured employee’s progress through the medical treatment process. Early treatment has kept our employees at work when in the past they would have likely taken time off or been placed off by a physician.
I recommend Axiom because their Nurse Case Management Team is their biggest asset. They are accessible, give great reports and are responsive to our needs.
