Advances in bio-technology and the Internet of Things are dramatically changing the way occupational medicine practitioners and employers prevent and manage costly sprains and strains. In this podcast, Anthony Harris, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., WorkCare’s Vice President of Onsite Clinical Operations and Associate Medical Director, describes how wearable body sensors are used to perform workplace Bio-Ergonomic Surveillance based on clinical algorithms. Findings from these replicable assessments provide insights for the development of individual preventive interventions and enterprise-wide risk management solutions. Participating employees benefit from better health outcomes, while their employers reduce medical and indemnity costs, create healthier and safer workplaces, and improve employees’ quality of life.
