How Does Axiom Medical’s FirstCall Telehealth Work?
Axiom Medical’s FirstCall Telehealth offers three levels of service to best meet the employee health needs of your organization.
Tier-1: 24/7 Nurse Triage
The Tier-1 Nurse Triage provides 24/7, nationwide access to licensed medical professionals. Upon reporting the employee injury or incidents, our licensed medical professionals perform full medical assessments to include a review of medical history and medications, to determine an appropriate treatment plan. Such treatment may include self-care first aid measures with the use of over-the-counter medications or referral to a treatment facility for further evaluation.
Tier-2: – FirstCall Triage: Limited Follow-up:
FirstCall Telehealth, Tier 2, includes 24/7 Nurse Triage, medical assessment by a licensed medical professional to include medical history and current medications, and treatment recommendation of either self-care with first aid measures or referral to a medical facility for further evaluation and patient care. The licensed medical professional will follow up with the employee to verify an appropriate health path toward recovery.
Tier-3: – FirstCall Triage: Return to Work/Workers Comp
The top FirstCall Telehealth tier is the most popular level of service due to the all-inclusive, comprehensive approach. In addition to all benefits of Tier 1 and Tier 2, Tier 3 provides full-scale deployment of immediate intervention with continued medical management and monitoring with transfer to your TPA or workers’ compensation carrier, if applicable.
Upgrade service options include: long-term case management, return to work exams, functional capacity evaluations, drug/alcohol testing, and medication reviews.

What’s the Difference Between Telehealth and Telemedicine?
Telehealth and Telemedicine are two different care options in the remote healthcare field. While Telehealth is relevant to remote monitoring, virtual evaluations, and non-clinical services, Telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services. Both have their benefits in delivering appropriate health care and offering tangible benefits for employees and employers.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the healthcare field that connects patients to virtual health care services. Like a traditional office visit, remote Telehealth includes a medical assessment of the employee’s condition, including review of medical history and current medications, with development of an appropriate treatment plan.
Advantages of Telehealth:
- Offers easy access to licensed medical professionals
- Improves employee/patient engagement with active communication and remote monitoring
- Available 24/7, nationwide
- Improves injury/health outcomes with immediate intervention to assist with recovery
- Reduces overall costs
How Can Axiom Medical Help?
They Said It!
Axiom has been a great asset to Sunland & Affiliates in reducing our overall OSHA Medical Treatment cases and continues to provide excellent medical care for our employees.
In the past, we sent employees to an ER, but now they have professional medical treatment at their fingertips 24 hours / 7 days a week.
We benefit most from the knowledge the Nurse Case Managers have regarding emergency triage and continued follow up throughout the employee’s treatment.
