Golden Opportunity: Harbor Health Systems Networks Receive Approvals for Telemedicine

The Golden State is welcoming Harbor Health Systems, a One Call Care Management company.

The organization has just announced that it is one of the first companies to receive approval from the California Department of Workers’ Compensation to offer telemedicine through its medical provider networks (MPNs).

“This approval is a positive step forward in improving access to high quality care for injured workers,” said Linda Lane, president of Harbor Health Systems. “We can now offer the capability to patients and to payers to search the Harborsys MPN provider directory and find high performing physicians who offer telemedicine, or to be directed to these physicians by our Medical Access Assistant staff. The telemedicine capability and the ability to find physicians who offer this service is especially important in rural areas, as well as to make care immediately accessible twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.”

Through the video teleconferencing capabilities enabled by Harbor’s telemedicine partners, injured workers gain immediate access to treatment, eliminating unnecessary costs and delays.

Harbor’s MPN networks cover approximately 2 million employees in the state of California and Harbor plans to roll out the new telemedicine product across its book of business.
