Peabody, MA – Energi recently unveiled its new Worker’s Compensation Triage program, Company Nurse®. This new injury-reporting program seeks to provide injured workers with immediate medical triage and medical advice over the phone with a Registered Nurse. Injured workers and employers have easy, 24/7 access to Company Nurse® through Energi’s Claims Hotline.
Energi’s new triage program provides an incredibly innovative and proactive approach to Workers Compensation claims reporting. The Company Nurse® program is presently being rolled out to all of Energi’s nationwide policyholders.
Energi has implemented Company Nurse® in order to:
- Reduce costly and unnecessary ER visits;
- Provide employees with instant telephonic first aid advice from a Registered Nurse, 24/7, through Energi’s Claims Hotline (1.888.CLAIM.50);
- Send injured employees to an appropriate workers comp treatment site or urgent care site if needed; and
- Effectively manage and expedite the worker’s compensation claims intake and reporting process.
“We are excited to begin offering Company Nurse® to our insured and their injured employees,” said Robert Woods, Sr. Vice President of Claims for Energi. “The new Energi Triage program is designed to provide a proactive approach to claims reporting, encouraging best practices around prompt reporting, and providing injured works with immediate access to care.”
Energi previously encouraged employers to send workers, even those with minor, non-serious injuries, to the ER. Company Nurse® provides access for initial care for minor work injuries where an ER visit is not necessary.
“We believe Company Nurse® will prevent unneeded and costly Emergency Room visits, adding great cost benefit for our policyholders,” said Robert Woods, Sr. Vice President of Claims for Energi.
Energi emphasized that the Company Nurse® program is not a replacement for immediate medical care in the event of a serious worker injury. In the event of a serious injury, employee and employer should always dial 911 and report the injury after the employee is stabilized.
