WCTL’s National Nurse Triage program is the only one of its kind in Canada and adheres to best practice Nurse Triage protocols. Proactive Nurse triage helps reduce the number of medical aid, restricted work and time loss claims while ensuring injured employees are directed to medical care when required. Telephonic Nurse Triage at the point of injury minimizes the probability that seemingly straight forward incidents spiral into complex and costly claims. The program provides employers with a level of accountability that vastly improves the integrity of HSE statistics.
Nurse Triage is most effective when bundled with WCTL’s Disability Claims Management Services. However, the Nurse Triage program can also be offered on a “Standalone” basis for a minimum monthly subscription fee.
