Sedgwick has tapped into the expertise of healthcare concierge service Accolade to launch a new whole health solution designed to ensure the physical, emotional, and financial health of clients’ employees and their family members as they navigate workers’ compensation, disability, leave of absence, job accommodations, and health benefits.
With the whole health solution, each member of an employer’s health plan is assigned a dedicated health assistant, who works with Sedgwick’s claims management and clinical experts. That assistant guides the employee through the entire process, supporting them in receiving high-quality care and preparing them for returning to work following an absence.
“Sedgwick offers an extensive portfolio of services in the risk and benefits space, and our partnership…aligns care management with the highly regulated benefits process to simplify the experience for employees and their families,” said Accolade President Rob Cavanaugh. “Our partnership gives employers an important integrated benefit that strengthens their programs, drives employee satisfaction up, and is proven to drive costs and complexities down.”
“The integration of health and productivity solutions in our whole health model gives our clients’ employees a streamlined and consistent way to access the assistance and care afforded by their benefits,” said Sedgwick President and CEO Dave North.
Accolade, a McKesson Ventures portfolio company, is an on-demand healthcare concierge for employers, health plans, and health systems.
Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc., is a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk and benefits solutions.
