Getting Back to Work: Workers' Comp and the Social Determinants of Health

Getting Back to Work: Workers' Comp and the Social Determinants of Health

Quick Overview

Failure to address the SDOH after a workers' compensation injury or in any medical management setting can negatively impact healing, increase healthcare costs, and delay return to work. After reviewing the SDOH, we will evaluate a case study to see how an injury that ended with the post-injury death of a worker could have been prevented with an adequate process to determine the worker's other medical, emotional, and physical needs. Join us as Nancy Germond helps us to understand that there is more to an injury than just physical healing.

Early intervention on SDOH factors post-injury can be a game changer in workers' compensation injuries. By evaluating and acting to reduce barriers to post-injury recovery, employers and claims professionals can lower medical spend, prevent rehospitalizations, and speed return to work. After this session, attendees should be able to

  • Review the factors known as SDOH, which can delay recovery and drive medical spend.
  • Understand the connection between non-injury health and human factors to better understand the injury management cycle
  • Review the importance and types of interventions that can support effective SDOH management post-injury
  • Review the factors of SDOH that will impede return to work
