Concentra Telemedicine Coverage Continues to Grow - Now in 11 States
Expands access to occupational health care in five additional statesADDISON, Texas — May 1, 2018 — Concentra, the nation’s largest provider of occupational medicine, today announces another expansion of its telemedicine solution, Concentra TelemedTM. Employers and their employees in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia can now access expert clinicians via their mobile device or computer for occupational injuries. This is the third phase in Concentra’s rapid expansion and cultivates a broader view of occupational injury care delivery, one that meets injured workers where they are whenever they need medical care.
Recent expansions of Concentra Telemed have yielded positive outcomes. Additionally, unlike standalone telemedicine products, Concentra Telemed seamlessly integrates with Concentra’s many medical centers for follow-up treatment, specialist care, or physical therapy if required.
“We continue to make steady progress, meeting our expansion goals and demonstrating our continued commitment to deliver virtual visits that drive high levels of patient satisfaction,” said Ann Schnure, vice president of Concentra Telemed operations. “Convenient access to injury care is vitally important, and our innovative approach meets that need and helps improve the health of America’s workforce. We couldn’t be more excited about our progress to date and our ability to move quickly into the next phase of our expansion.”
Concentra Telemed is built on the company’s strong foundation of 39 years in occupational medicine and workplace health to bring simple, trusted medical care directly to employees via a video connection on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Concentra’s experienced clinicians provide care to injured workers so they receive a timely diagnosis and immediate treatment, eliminating the need for transportation to a medical center. These virtual visits deliver high patient satisfaction and improved productivity, while limiting costs to the employer.
