The Nurse Triage process provides medical expertise at the onset of claims


How Nurse Triage Works

Injury Occurs - The injury is reported to the employer and a workers’ comp claim is filed.

Nurse Intervention - The new claim is immediately escalated to a trained nurse case manager to expedite the processing of claim.

Clinical Evaluation - A thorough medical assessment is completed in alignment with the Official Disability Guidelines, and a recommended action plan is developed.

Four-Point Contact - Nurse facilitates communication with all involved parties to ensure accountability and efficient management of claim.
