What is lost time? How does it affect your business? Lost time occurs when an employee suffers an injury or illness during the course of employment and requires time off work for recovery; in other words, innocent absenteeism, which can be brief or indefinite. Businesses in turn suffer at the operational and financial level from reduced productivity, increased administration, scheduling conflicts, as well as inflated workers’ compensation costs, which all affect their bottom line. Simply put, lost time costs everyone.
Fortunately, there’s a trusted industry- leading solution ready to deliver the care employees deserve, and the peace of mind that employers need. TeksMed offers a unique claims management solution that’s proven to mitigate lost time and its effects with a focus on employee health and ability – the WorkAbility program has benefited employers across Canada for over 20 years – make up for lost time and inquire today! TeksMed saves businesses time and money, which helps employers focus on what’s really important: growing the business!
An important component of a strong injury management plan is being able to measure its success. Operational and financial reports should be developed and analyzed on a regular basis; this information paves the way for internal discussion and positive change with respect to health and safety programs and initiatives. TeksMed can provide a wide range of custom reports developed specifically for your organization to assist with monitoring incident and injury trends, costs and overall performance.
Research has repeatedly indicated that wait times for medically necessary treatment are not benign inconveniences. Wait times can, and do, have serious consequences such as increased pain, suffering, and mental anguish. In certain instances, they can also result in poorer medical outcomes — transforming potentially reversible illnesses or injuries into chronic, irreversible conditions, or even permanent disabilities.
