One Call Physical Therapy experts share the latest on predictive analytics, injury prevention and wearable technology at the Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference
How to use the latest technologies and programs to prevent injuries, heal and keep employees healthy was the topic of “Managing Risk: Prepare, Predict and Prosper,” presented August 7 at the Workers’ Compensation Institute’s 72nd annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference in Orlando.
“The proliferation of smart technology and predictive analytics is revolutionizing the way injured employees receive treatment, which is leading to a healthier workforce,” said Michelle Despres, vice president and national product leader for One Call Physical Therapy, a division of One Call Care Management (One Call).
Highlights of the presentation included:
The return on investment of these options can be substantial. For example, Despres noted that a single hire who is not physically capable of doing the job is not only at risk for injury, but can cost an employer $50,000 or more in lost productivity and other expenses.
“Being continuously proactive on workers’ compensation claims is a tremendous challenge,” concluded Despres. “However, the outcomes are so dramatically better and less costly that it makes sense for employers to make it a priority.”
One Call will also be participating in the conference’s Health Fair running through August 9.
