Incorporating telemedicine into the workplace does present certain challenges such as language and cultural barriers, privacy and cybersecurity concerns, and regulatory and reimbursement issues. While it will not affect spending on catastrophic claims, telehealth can be an invaluable tool for employers managing, more minor workers’ compensation injuries. When it comes to utilizing telehealth, experts recommend that medical practitioners and claims adjusters strike a balance between telemedicine and in-person care to ensure the best treatment outcome for every injured worker. With the potential to transform the workers’ comp industry, telehealth connects patients, physicians, employers and insurance providers in a way that works for everyone.
