Catastrophic (CAT) injuries are life-changing injuries that usually occur suddenly and without warning. They leave a lasting impact on the life of the injured worker and his/her family, and also accompany acute and long term medical cost risks to the employer and insurance carrier.
Orchard nurses complete extensive training in catastrophic care coordination, delivered by our Vice President of Case Management, a Master’s level clinical educator. Our nurses’ caseloads are among the lowest in our industry, giving them the ability to provide focused attention on demanding CAT claims. Throughout this process, our highest priority is to ensure clear communication, prompt service, and focused acute healthcare management and coordination.
With dedicated and responsive medical management by an Orchard CAT nurse case manager, the injured worker is assured the best possible outcome, while the risk of complications and increased costs are mitigated.
