Raja explains how digital health is transforming employees' recovery and overall wellness. He speaks on what makes a good digital health program and how digital health augments care by enabling providers to further support patients in their recovery in between clinic visits. Key components to a successful program include coaching, delivering data and insights, leading to more support, motivation, and faster intervention and recovery.
Digital health programs reduce injury costs and overall cost of the claim, help avoid unnecessary medical treatment, decrease risk of re-injury, reduce missed work days, and provide a good and safe recovery experience. Therefore, goals for all parties are being met while producing better quality outcomes.
