Virtual End-to-End Care in Workers’ Compensation to be Presented at RIMS

CorVel Session Looks at How the Pandemic Pushed Transformation of Care, Next Steps

Irvine, California, UNITED STATES


IRVINE, Calif., April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- David Lupinsky, Vice President of Digital Health and Innovation, CorVel, will be co-presenter of a session exploring the impact of AI and telehealth at RIMS LIVE 2021, the world’s most prestigious risk management and insurance virtual conference.

“Disruption: How Big Data, AI and Telehealth Are Transforming Claims Management,” led by Lupinsky and Stacey Caldwell, Corporate Claims Manager, BBSI, will chronicle the journey that is transforming care for injured workers, producing better outcomes at less cost and improving the patient’s experience. The educational session is scheduled for Monday, April 26 at 4:30PM EDT but will remain available to all attendees for 60 days after the conference.

Although telehealth was already in use for workers’ compensation, the pandemic pushed its evolution forward to quickly and permanently make virtual end-to-end care possible — and even preferable — for rapid, safe recovery.

“We started several years ago by connecting with the injured worker via telehealth so we could immediately determine the best course of care, saving time off work and getting the right level of care for the injury,” said Lupinsky. “Now, we can provide remote physician visits, home pharmacy delivery, in-home tele-rehab, instruction for DME equipment operation, and mental health therapy with the case manager, the medical team and the patient all connected digitally. Patients love this approach. They are more engaged, and we’ve found that it costs less and produces superior outcomes.”

Lupinsky will also address the use of digital monitoring in prevention, as well as applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to proactively identify potential or emerging problems for immediate intervention. Caldwell will present case studies showing the effectiveness of virtual end-to-end care.
