Working Athletes in Action
What does InSite Health provide?
InSite Health is a “PRO” at effectively and efficiently preventing and managing injury or discomfort. Unique to other healthcare professionals, our Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals™ (ISMP) are trained to prevent and provide care for musculoskeletal discomfort and injury; assess and lead the development of effective ergonomic solutions, and conduct onsite training – all to better the health and wellness of our clients and teams. The sooner we see people, the better their outcomes. Our quick and thorough care is critical in making sure Working Athletes™ stay on the job.
How will InSite Health services help my business?
By providing on-site Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals, we are actively engaged with the physical workforce, allowing us to track physical discomforts and deals with them quickly before they turn into injuries. Even small discomforts and simple repetitive motions can lead to injuries that cost time and money. This investment will protect your working athletes and their companies from the domino effect of loss that can be caused by injuries and lost time.
How are the InSite Health on site staff trained?
Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals are led by the InSite Health Leadership Team, with services provided by Nationally Licensed & State Certified Athletic Trainers. Along with Licensure and Certifications, all Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals undergo advanced training through our InSite University.
Besides higher education achievements, each provider is nationally certified and licensed as appropriate within the state(s) they service. With both certification and licensure, providers are required to complete 50 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per 2-year reporting period. Ten of these CEUs must come specifically from Evidence Based Practice. These 50 credits are primarily in the areas of ergonomics, manual therapy, therapeutic modalities, emergency care, body mechanics, therapeutic exercise, strength and conditioning. Many of our team members also have acquired additional certifications in Functional Movement Screening (FMS), ergonomics, manual therapy, teaching, strength and conditioning and worker’s compensation management. As a corporation striving for excellence, InSite Health has developed its own training and mentoring program for all its team members. This begins during the on-boarding process in which each team member is trained on injury management in the industrial setting; relationship development and communication; OSHA definition and policies; the InSite Health Systems (Industrial Sports Medicine, Ergonomics, PRO Learn™ – Education, PRO Fit™ – Physical Conditioning, PRO Moves™ – Body Mechanics, PRO Health™ – Health, Wellness and Prevention). Upon completion of the on-boarding process, all team members undergo regular trainings and mentoring by internal and external experts in the field of study.
What makes InSite Health different from other companies who provide Athletic Trainers on site?
The key to InSite Health’s success is our ability to develop strong connections with our client’s employees, while delivering efficient and effective services. Each encounter we have with a Working Athlete deepens trust and camaraderie within the relationship. Our ISMP’s are visibly active, on the floor, in the field, or on the line; not sitting in an office waiting for a problem. What truly sets us apart is by being fully present and providing coaching in real time, right on the job. We know how to, and love to, build these relationships with The Working Athlete. Our clients learn quickly that they can trust us, and they have confidence in what we say.
How is your program different from traditional occupational health programs?
At InSite Health, we believe that the men and women that perform in the industrial setting are Working Athletes. Our Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals™ (ATCS) relate the same way with these Working Athletes as traditional Athletic Trainers assist pro athletes. Our clients have learned right away the difference between our Industrial Sports Medicine approach of being proactive in care, rather than reactive to an incident. From the introduction of the program rollout, to stretching and warm up programs, to proactive ergonomic assessments and hand-on techniques to assist with discomfort or injury, our program produces results and reduces injury.
How does the program work?
Early intervention is the goal! With prompt identification and proactive management of any discomfort injuries severity level can be reduced and recovery time can be improved. Expertise in utilizing effective ergonomic tools and solutions, both acute and chronic injury occurrences will be positively reduced. By decreasing severity levels, OSHA / LT cases will be diminishing, leading to dramatic financial savings in both work and non-work related medical and insurance costs. The on-site presence of allied health care professional’s aids in supporting the management’s commitment to injury prevention, thus building positive employee relations.
Why do you track and help with non-work-related cases?
Attention to non-work-related injury or discomfort complaints is just as important as work-related injury or discomfort care. At InSite Health, we seek to form a bond with The Working Athletes™, our policy of open door communication will encourage them to utilize their ISMP, and the healthcare within reach. By tracking non-work-related encounters, our providers can address an issue before it turns into a chronic condition, a major musculoskeletal disorder or lost time. None of the information pertaining to a non-work-related discomforts are reported to the client, only a notification of the encounter. This policy provides confident for The Working Athlete™ to address any issues privately with our providers.
If we have our own internal medical staff, will InSite Health be able to add to it or possibly consider hiring our providers to provide services if outsourced?
InSite Health partners with our clients and their internal resources to achieve great results. This may be with physicians, nurses, physical therapists or ergonomist that are employed or contracted with the client. If potential clients are considering outsourcing services, we certainly are open to employment screening and the hiring of existing staff if they can meet our standards and philosophies.
You don’t have any locations in my current state/area. Can you staff a facility here?
InSite Health currently serves over 500 locations throughout 24 states, with a goal of 1,000,000 health care encounters per year. We have not only shown exceptional outcomes, but more importantly, made exceptional impact on the lives of those we serve. InSite Health has found its niche in the ability to staff and run programs throughout the U.S., including the Hawaiian Islands. Locations vary in hours from a few hours per month to multiple fulltime positions within a client. At InSite Health, we welcome your partnership and will provide the care and program needed throughout the Nation.
How long does it take to get the program started?
On average, InSite Health can fully implement our programs within a client in approximately 30 days. This will vary based on geographic location and region population density.
Will the process interfere with production?
InSite Health has extensive experience caring for employees who work in environments that require constant operation and feel very confident in successfully providing our services, utilizing set hours within the identified physical locations. Program schedules for employees will be developed for traditionally non-peak hours and to allow for responsible coverage and care during breaks and off-shift time. A scheduling system is utilized to allow for proper backfill. Care will be provided in a separate room, as identified by the client, as well as within the operations area when appropriate.
You don’t have any experience in our industry. Can your program be successful here too?
InSite Health works with many industries, from the most labor intensive to traditional office settings. We have professional experience across a wide spectrum of environments and see our clients as working athletes. As we are in such a varying number of industries, InSite Health has been able to learn, train and adapt to any industry using our internal training systems, effective interviewing and hiring and by taking a “team” approach with our clients. We do not know everything, but believe when we develop a team environment, we can be successful anywhere.
How can you increase engagement in our stretching program?
There are 2 main keys for increasing the use of a physical conditioning programs (Stretching/Strengthening) by employees. The first is to fully explain how the body functions and that it is a machine. As is the case for any machine, we must maintain and improve it on a regular basis to keep it performing at its highest levels. The second key is that employees will only participate in health and safety programs when they thoroughly understand what it is they will be doing and that it is for their personal good. The quote “No one cares how much you know until they know you care” T. Roosevelt, sums this up perfectly.
How do you prevent a Non-Work-Related injury (NWR) from becoming a Potentially Work Related injury (PWR)?
In today’s healthcare market, everyone understands injuries are expensive, but what is the cost of discomfort? It is important to thoroughly understand that “rubbing some dirt on it” does not help and that today’s healthcare systems are impersonal, confusing and extremely expensive. InSite Health provides a personal, relationship based option for the employees to seek advice and care within reach of every day operations. Our proactive and attentive approach, and our desire to be aware of the smallest discomfort encourage our working athletes to communicate all needs or concerns. Even simple repetitive motions or an accident at home, can lead to injuries that cost time and money. We protect working athletes and their companies from the domino effect of loss that can be caused by a non-work-related ache or injury.
What is an ISMP?
An ISMP, is an Industrial Sports Medicine Professional, that is a highly specialized Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) delivering injury prevention and care, ergonomics, education and coaching in an industrial setting for “The Working Athlete™”
How is an ISMP different from an ergonomist?
Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals differ from ergonomists in the fact that they not only have training in the field of ergonomics, they are licensed and nationally certified allied health care providers. With this dual background, our team can not only work on prevention of risks through ergonomic solutions, they are also skilled at managing discomfort and advancing physical conditioning of the workforce. Additionally, Industrial Sports Medicine Professionals encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions. Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA), Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as an allied health care profession.
Won’t having a healthcare provider on-site increase my site’s recordable rate?
On the contrary. InSite Health has a proven track record of significantly reducing OSHA recordable injuries through prevention and early intervention of discomfort. Clients will experience high utilization of our services, while showing a direct correlation in their injury statistics, with an average referral rate to outside health services being less than 4% of all engagements.
