WorkCare’s Executive Chairman and Chief Medical Officer Peter P. Greaney, M.D., explains why returning injured employees to work is critical to their recovery – both physically and mentally. He also describes how prompt reporting and immediate care guidance provided by a trusted clinician helps injured employees remain productive. This approach, which focuses on the value of work, has been shown to improve employee health outcomes while reducing associated medical, workers’ compensation and lost-time costs.
