Axiom Medical Telephonic Case Management:

 

The key to successful incident and injury case management is providing immediate access to care.  With timely intervention, while also minimizing work comp claims, employees may be given appropriate first aid measure treatment recommendations to aid in their recovery process. With over 65% of cases being managed in-house with first aid measures, most injuries do not require formal medical attention. Some benefits of telephonic case management include:

 

  • Quick access to first aid
  • Early diagnosis of medical condition
  • 24/7 access to medically trained, licensed medical professionals
  • Assistance with referral, should a higher level of care be warranted
  • Custom-tailored recovery plan
  • Return to work facilitation

Is Case Management Required?

Medical treatment accounts for almost 60 percent of workers' compensation costs, so there's plenty of incentive to be proactive here.

Did You Know Psychological Distress Can Trigger Workplace Accidents?

Experts claim that employees dealing with psychological distress have a 34% increased risk of workplace injury. Moderate to high levels of emotional and mental distress can increase the odds of workplace accidents by 40%. When a workplace injury occurs, employers not only deal with increased healthcare costs but can also lose up to 28% of employee productivity due to unsupported mental health challenges. As a result, turnover costs add up and can be an average of $4000 per employee.

Axiom Medical Injury Case Management Services

Injury Reporting

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/TRIR Reduction:

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.
