Nursing Analyst Program

Various health trends are driving the severity and costs of Workers’ Compensation claims, including the impact of “comorbidity” conditions in a society that is increasingly becoming unhealthier. Comorbidities include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, depression and anxiety, etc., and they play a significant role in the longer treatment times and increased costs seen in work-related injuries or illnesses.

 

Our Nurse Analyst program is designed to help claims adjusters who typically don’t have a medical background with the medical portion of the claims process. A Nurse Analyst is skilled at identifying comorbidities and other conditions that can impact the injured employee’s recovery, and help adjusters with the following:

Opioid Abuse Program

Studies show that long-term use of high doses of opioids usually isn’t the best treatment for chronic pain, unless the patient is terminal. Using these drugs long term can actually increase a patient’s sensitivity to pain, requiring higher doses for the same level of pain relief. This escalating dosage pattern can contribute to opioid addiction, which can impact workplace safety and increase Workers’ Compensation costs. When injured workers are prescribed opioids, their total claim costs can be four to eight times those of similar claims where no opioids were prescribed, according to studies published by the NCCI. Using these medications can also delay return-to-work due to safety issues and drowsiness, which results in higher wage-loss benefits.


Our Nurse Analyst reviews all opioid prescriptions and works with treating physicians to limit the use before addiction becomes a problem.
