PRAXES – Your Health Partner
As illness and injury continue to become major causes of work interruptions, workplace health comes into focus as a business issue – not just an employee benefit issue. Whether your organization is active in an office or in a remote mine site, you face a common challenge – how to keep your workplace healthy and deal with medical emergencies immediately.
PRAXES can help. Our service offerings fall within two main categories: Workplace Health Services and Remote Medical Services. Our mission is to improve health care while simultaneously reducing cost and risk for our clients across Canada, and on the oceans of the world.
Our clients include:
The Canadian Navy and Coast Guard, oil and gas installations, prisons, mines, and fishing fleets. PRAXES is delighted to be the Global Medical Support Partner for the 2015/2016 Clipper Round the World Race with 24/7 global emergency medical support.
What makes the PRAXES remote health care delivery model so effective?
Although some clients look to us for clinical services only, our specialty lies in helping our clients plan their workplace health future so that specific health goals can be identified and achieved. Because we are frequently delivering remote healthcare services, all of our methods and systems are designed for:
- Speed of response – our 24/7 telemedicine services have a global 5 minute response guarantee
- Providing the right advisor at the right time – clinic-based and telemedicine services can supply both emergency physicians and occupational health physicians for consultation at any location
- Sound medical advice – we provide the right medical decision for both the employee and the business
Workplace health: concerns & considerations
PRAXES staff and services excel at helping your organization address important workplace health concerns. You know that:
- Medical incidents can shut down a job site
- Medical compliance violations can stop a work site
- Specialist physicians are hard or impossible to access in remote locations = lost time and cascading losses
- It’s difficult to get a physician who understands your work environment and has the medical knowledge to support it
- Medical incidents can trigger compliance violations, loss of critical employees, WCB increases and large “out of pocket” expenses
