As a provider of workers’ compensation telehealth services directly to employers, Kura MD is now making its workers’ compensation platform commercially available nationwide, the company announces.

Using Kura MD’s Telehealth Platform, a doctor can see the injured worker at the point of injury and schedule routine follow-up visits whether the injured worker is at work, home, or even traveling.

“Occupational Medicine clinics are limited geographically in their reach, and the biggest non-medical expense to employers for non-emergency workplace injuries is time spent traveling to the ER or clinic and time away from work,” says Doug Sumaraga, architect of the platform and recently promoted Kura MD CEO, in a media release from the Roseville, Calif-headquartered company.

“The workers’ compensation platform was built to replicate the in-office visit from initial check-in to the end of the visit and includes efficiencies not found in the brick-and-mortar clinic. All required state-specific workers’ compensation forms and reports are built-in to the Kura MD Platform and are auto-generated and distributed to all stakeholders at the end of the visit. At the Platform’s core is an EHR designed for workers’ comp with integrated UR, RFA generation, e-billing, claims tracking to MMI, and much more,” he adds.

Keith Woodard, newly appointed VP of Sales states, “The mission is to empower the U.S. workforce with ‘Click-and-Mortar’ clinics in every state and to enable physicians to operate their own Virtual Medical Clinic at their location of choice.”

According to Dianne Vass, SVP of Marketing and Client Relations, “Over the next few years, industry analysts predict as many injured workers will see a doctor online for the initial injury and follow-up visits as are seen in the ER or clinic. Kura MD is at the forefront driving this change.”

With Kura MD’s quick start onboarding process, providers can begin seeing injured workers online in less than 30 days, the company notes in the release.
