When an employee is injured on the job, unique and difficult questions often arise: is emergency care necessary? If not, where do they go for treatment? How does the injury affect their ability to work? At what point have they fully recovered, or when is it safe for them to return to work? What can be done to prevent future injuries from occurring when performing this same task?
In order to better address these concerns, healthcare providers and employers are forming partnerships, which allow for more direct and efficient communication, reduced costs, as well as better care and a safer work environment for employees. JTECH Medical had the opportunity to talk with both sides of this partnership to gain insight into the process and learn about some of the benefits each side gains.
