closing the gap: medical technology benefitting insurance

09/06/2018

Unfortunately accidents do happen, but wouldn’t it be valuable if you could be in contact with a trained medical professional immediately after injury? With telemedicine, this can be a reality.

Telemedicine provides injured workers for your insured’s business to be in contact with medical staff in real time over the phone. Which could save injury severity, time and money for all parties.

According to the American Medical Association (AMA), 70 percent of all work injuries are appropriate for telemedicine indicating there is a market for this technology. Join Chris as he chats with Jim Bowers, Claims Process Leader to discuss telemedicine and the value it adds to your agency and customers.
