Workers’ Comp Summit: Aug 25-27, 2019 – Samoset Resort, Rockport, ME


Workshop B: Leveraging Modern Telemedicine

Monday, August 26th, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Enhance Your Workers’ Compensation Processes

What’s it all about? Telemedicine embraces modern technology to offer anywhere, anytime access to medical care. It eliminates barriers, such as travel time and location. Not only does telemedicine have the potential to remove logistical hurdles; there is a growing interest in virtual health technology by all ages. Many employers offer telemedicine as an employee health plan option. However, adopting digital health for workers’ compensation is still a foreign concept in the average workplace. Companies not using telemedicine to streamline workers’ compensation processes are missing an opportunity to reduce work-related injury claims costs and improve employee health outcomes. Dr. Latha Brubaker and Mark Faenza from Concentra, lead this informative presentation, providing insight on an effective telemedicine/workers’ compensation strategy and implementation.
