Concentra Announces First Telemedicine Expansion for 2020
Concentra Telemed Is Now Available in Washington, D.C.
Addison, Texas (May 4, 2020) ꟷ Concentra®, the nation’s leading occupational medicine provider, has extended access to its telemedicine platform for workers’ compensation, Concentra Telemed®, to workforces in Washington, D.C.
Concentra Telemed is a telemedicine platform designed for the treatment of relatively minor work-related injuries. This proprietary app enables injured employees to access care more efficiently for optimal outcomes. Concentra Telemed clinicians can treat employees shortly after an injury from a mobile device or computer (with internet access). The telemedicine platform utilizes Concentra’s electronic health records (EHR) system for coordinated, patient-centric care.
“As adoption of telemedicine for workplace injuries increases, Concentra Telemed continues to provide high-quality care that is convenient for injured employees,” said Lisa M. Figueroa, MD, FACEP, Concentra vice president of medical operations, national medical director of health information technology, and national medical director of telemedicine. “In addition to high-quality clinical care, documentation in our EHR provides seamless information sharing for continuity of care and communication with employers.”
Concentra has leveraged the popular features of video-chat technology to deliver workplace injury care remotely, allowing employers to facilitate the return-to-work process more efficiently for improvements in patient recovery, work productivity, and medical cost savings.
Concentra is helping to eliminate potential barriers to expedited care by offering Concentra Telemed in 38 states.
