Agile now offers telemedicine consultations for ill and injured workers, providing access to exceptional medical advice and care coordination.
Agile, a trusted provider of occupational health services, offers a new telemedicine and case management solution for non-life-threatening, work-related illnesses, and injuries as an alternative to a traditional, in-office consultation. Rather than relying solely on local healthcare infrastructure, telemedicine offers top-notch virtual care to injured or ill workers to save costs and improve patient outcomes.
Employees who are injured on the job often experience difficulty in getting to and from medical appointments. With this program, an Agile primary treating physician provides an on-demand connection with a board-certified doctor from the convenience of an injured employee’s work or home. Agile’s secure communications technology improves access to care as well as patient outcomes while also helping control health care costs.
For injuries that need an in-person visit, they will have continued contact with our doctors as their primary treating physician throughout the case, and Agile’s team will coordinate the in-person visits with a convenient local clinic. All aspects of care will be tracked by Agile’s clinical team, so ongoing care, work status, and prescriptions can continue to be managed through a telemedicine platform rather than having to return to a clinic for routine follow-up.
Agile doctors are active participants in many MPNs and are able to move cases along more quickly by providing a consistent and qualified partner who can manage authorizations and scheduling seamlessly.
