Case Studies

Automotive Manufacturer

Premise Health gives a top auto manufacturer healthier employees and lower costs.

Premise Health revitalized clinic operations for a major U.S. auto manufacturer. When the company wanted to give employees more services while reducing the increasingly high costs of healthcare, Premise Health implemented its successful model to exceed those goals.

The results were overwhelmingly positive. Over the next five years, Premise Health:

  • Reduced workers’ compensation costs by $15M
  • Reduced the amount required to be reserved for claims payouts by $14.6M

The manufacturer also won the Teddy Roosevelt Award in the For-Profit category for its outstanding accomplishments in the areas of workers’ compensation, employee safety and medical management.

Premise Health helped the manufacturer by:

  • Holding regular meetings with the ESIS, Premise Health providers, PT and client medical management to discuss claims reviews and strategy.
  • Starting an Early Symptom Intervention program led by our ESI coordinator that included fully certified athletic training staff intervening early in cases of musculoskeletal discomfort.
  • Implementing Proactive Premise Health RN case management (site, telephonic and field).
  • Placing a dedicated case management staff
  • Training the entire medical staff on ways to keep people well at work
  • Practicing aggressive case management from First Report of Injury (FROI) to Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) using evidence-based medicine (EBM) guidelines.
  • Placing onsite physical therapists who worked closely with clinicians, employees and management.
  • Training Premise Health clinicians in the latest Occupational Health EBM guidelines and practice adjustment.
  • Contacting community providers if there were gaps in documentation and noting those gaps in work abilities with respect to fitness-for-duty exams.
  • Encouraging the auto manufacturer to follow EBM guidelines.
  • Providing scorecard reports to measure performance against EBM guidelines.
