Return-to-Health: an immediate solution to get employees well and back to work

Give employees the skills and confidence to rehabilitate and integrate back into the workforce. 

Remove delays to employee recovery

Shorten duration of leave and return to the workforce faster

Reduce risk for claims that have both physical and mental health diagnoses

Lower wait times to evidence-based support when they need it most

Reduce costs per claim with effective, cost-efficient digital support

Improve case manager-claimants rapport with progress reports to help with adherence

How it works

1. Mental health disability

Our Return-to-Health program personalizes an employee’s support and training to build the skills they need to successfully integrate back into the workforce with confidence and resilience. This leads to lower disability costs, faster return-to-work dates, and better organizational outcomes.

2. Physical disability

Our Return-to-Health program for physical injury delivers personalized support and training to help employees better understand their own mental health and how to use scientifically-proven strategies to build up their resilience to stress, anxiety, and depression. The goal is to ensure a mental health issue does not arise as a secondary illness.
