Would it surprise you to know that a delay in treatment by even one day can increase the risk of an incident having a recordable outcome by 60%?
For example, consider a back strain injury that occurs on Friday. Left untreated, stiffness will continue to develop over the weekend. By Monday, the employee may require a clinic visit where they are prescribed prescription medication. Had the injury been immediately reported using Axiom’s 24/7 Injury Reporting Hotline, the employee could have been given first aid measures, including over the counter medications. The Nurse Case Manager would follow up with the employee over the weekend with symptoms resolved within several days.
By utilizing Axiom Incident Case Management (ICM), recordable injury outcomes are significantly decreased, impacting both TRIR and DART ratings.
