American Well, a telehealth services provider, announced it is entering the workers’ compensation sector through a strategic partnership with CorVel Corporation, a national provider of risk management solutions. Together the companies will deliver on-demand doctor evaluations for employees with a workplace injury.
American Well’s platform allows workers to be seen immediately, 24/7, through the coordinated care of a CorVel advocacy nurse. American Well’s on-demand, nationwide doctors also have access to more information than they would in a traditional office visit, including medical and prescription history, employer information and return-to-work guidelines.
American Well has been delivering healthcare into people’s homes and workplaces for close to a decade. The company’s full-service telehealth platform includes traditional phone, mobile, smartphone and kiosk-based care delivery. In addition to the workers’ compensation industry, American Well serves a growing roster of health plans, hospitals, health systems, employers, retail organizations, and physicians, as well as consumers with its direct-to-consumer offering, Amwell.
