LONG-TERM CASE MANAGEMENT
Axiom Medical’s long-term 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 to aid in the recovery progression. When you choose Axiom as a strategic partner for your long-term injury case management process, your company can substantially reduce your workers’ comp and disability claims.
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.

What is Long-Term Case Management?
Injury case management is an occupational-health administrative service designed for managing workplace injury and controlling costs while improving the quality and delivery of healthcare services for the workforce. Long-term care case management is a service expansion of the traditional workplace occupational health service that focuses on claims management and assists injured or ill employees requiring extended long-term care before their return to work.
What Does a Long-Term Case Manager Do?
A long-term case manager oversees the provision of ongoing care services to individual employees needing extended medical attention after an injury or illness. The case manager will maintain the day-to-day operations, employee medication reviews, and act as a communicator between the employer and the medical provider while ensuring quality care is delivered.
