The Rise of Telemedicine in Workers’ Compensation Claim

During the COVID-19 pandemic, seeing a doctor has been tricky. For work-related injuries, you must seek medical attention as soon as possible so that you can file your workers' compensation claim. However, with only few doctors actively seeing patients, seeking medical attention can be difficult. Telemedicine is one of the best ways to solve this problem.

Telemedicine Basics

Telemedicine is a convenient way to receive the treatment you need when you need it. It uses a secure connection to connect you with your primary doctor so that a virtual evaluation can be performed. When dealing with a work-related injury, a Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME) performs the exam.

Benefits of Telemedicine When It Comes to Workers’ Compensation Cases

Telemedicine offers many benefits that helps speed up the workers’ compensation claim process. With telemedicine, you can schedule your appointment whenever is most convenient. You can also video call the QME from the comfort and security of your own home. For a person who has received a work-related injury, telemedicine is the fastest and most effective way to receive treatment for your injuries.

Different Ways Telemedicine Can Be Used

Telemedicine can be used in several different ways. Not only can your doctor give you a thorough medical examination, but he can also share his findings with the workers’ compensation attorney who are working on your claim. The doctor can invite specialists to participate in the examination, providing you with the most accurate diagnosis.

Can a QME Use Telemedicine to Perform a Medical Exam?

Telemedicine makes it easy for a QME to perform thorough medical examinations required for a workers’ compensation case. By performing the medical exam over a secure connection, it is easily recorded so that it can be reviewed and used when needed throughout the case. A telemedicine appointment makes it possible for the doctor to examine the injuries within a few hours of the accident.

If you received a work-related injury and have not been able to seek treatment due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consider asking for a telemedicine appointment. You can expect to be examined within just a few hours instead of several days. The attorneys at Gaylord & Nantais can then expedite the Workers’ Compensation claims process so that you can get the treatment you need.
