Lakewood Ranch, FL – WorkCompCollege.com, a division of Workers’ Compensation Educational Services, LLC and an #Edutech Company, has announced a Bronze Associate Partnership with Integrix. The mission of WorkCompCollege.com closely aligns with the founding principles of Integrix of Improving Outcomes and Changing Lives. Partners whose corporate values match are always more effective.
“Nurse case managers are uniquely positioned to positively affect the outcomes for employees who are injured at work, while assisting employers and carriers achieve significant cost savings” says Alecia Roy, Integrix’s founder and president. “Nurses bridge the gap between medicine and the business of workers’ compensation. As we continue to grow along the Gulf Coast and the U.S. we are excited to partner with WorkCompCollege to help broaden our understanding of the specific statutes governing each state and jurisdictions in which we practice.”
Mark Pew, Provost of WorkCompCollege, says, “A comment by Alecia in our initial discussion resonated deeply: Our industry is long overdue in centering professional development on the noble purpose of workers’ compensation. Our premise is that individuals who understand the big picture will make better choices. We cannot be more pleased to have Integrix join our mission of driving better outcomes to result in better communities and a better world.”
Leaders in the workers’ compensation industry have long been calling for better ways to maintain engagement of injured while managing claims. Different names and phrases have been used to define this idea – workers’ recovery, advocacy-based claims management, bio-psychosocial adoption, whole-person care – but all center around the same critical realization: Treating & caring for the entire person. The key to this approach is developing an understanding of the injured employee’s psychology and thought process, and employing clear, concise, and consistent communication methods. This process is regarded as a better way to improve clinical outcomes while reducing friction and cost and restoring humanity to the process.
WorkCompCollege.com is a community-driven effort designed to address those needs and will help continue the trend toward lower costs and improved results through education, information exchange, and mentorship.
