Bardavon Health Innovation, Planned Administrators, Inc., to Launch Integrated Commercial Health and Workers’ Comp Product
Bardavon Health Innovations and Planned Administrators, Inc. (PAI), a third party administrator for property and casualty, announced an integrated commercial health and workers’ compensation product for large employers nationwide.
Employers who participate in this program will be able to enhance workforce productivity and population health outcomes through integration of relevant clinical, cost and quality information among commercial health insurers, wellness programs and workers’ compensation programs.
The effort is uniquely valuable to large employers nationwide who continue to grapple with rising health care costs and lost employee productivity, due in large part to musculoskeletal injuries and disabilities. (It is well-established that musculoskeletal injuries drive 16 to 18 percent of total U.S. health care spending.)
The program combines and streamlines the often-siloed components that service a workers’ compensation claim into one process.
This integrated service provides near real-time information and establishes an employer-directed set of customized quality metrics that can be tracked and measured consistently at an individual patient and provider level throughout the continuum of care.
