Briotix Health Solution

After evaluating the types of injuries most commonly suffered by employees, the company determined that a comprehensive musculoskeletal injury prevention program would best fit their needs. They selected Briotix Health’s Industrial Sports Medicine™ solution with an emphasis on early discomfort screenings, health and wellness consultations, and ergonomic education to cut claims cost.

  • EARLY DISCOMFORT SCREENINGS
    Using best-practice early discomfort management, a Briotix Health provider
    delivered one-on-one personalized screenings to employees to address
    discomfort early in the injury cycle, significantly reducing the likelihood the
    discomfort would escalate to a claim.

  • HEALTH AND WELLNESS CONSULTATIONS
    Individual and group health and wellness consultations were offered including the development of a customized fitness and flexibility program designed to prepare the body for and help recover from the physical strain of daily tasks.

  • ERGONOMICS AND EDUCATION
    Biomechanics training, ergonomic assessments, and task analysis were conducted to reduce the risk of work-related injury and educate employees on the safest way to complete job tasks.

Results

Of those employees engaged by a Briotix Health provider, 93% of discomforts were resolved without converting to a claim. Of those that did result in a claim, the average cost was $5,257 lower.
