Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the announcement from Mitchell that is has invested in Consumer Health Connections, a telehealth and telepresence company that serves the workers’ comp industry.
Consumer Health Connections builds cloud-based technology solutions intended to bring the benefits of telehealth to the millions of workers who are injured annually. The company, founded in March 2015 and based in Waukesha, Wisconsin, markets its own telemedicine solution for virtual access to medical providers for initial and follow-up appointments, tele-rehab services, and virtual claim reviews. Mitchell noted that telehealth is one of the fastest growing segments of the healthcare industry, with the American Medical Association reporting that 70% of all healthcare visits could be done virtually. For workers’ comp, the number is predicted to be even higher, since 75-78% of claims typically involve less complex injuries and illnesses compared to personal health.
