Long-Term Senior Care Provider Cuts Injuries and Cost with POET

Benchmark Period

Feb. 2012 – Jan. 2013 (12 months)

Program Overview

A national provider of senior long-term care was experiencing a high rate of new hire musculoskeletal injuries, including sprain/strains, overexertion, and cumulative trauma in the three year period prior to implementing BTE’s POET solution. BTE was retained to develop a validated POET program on a pilot basis to screen incoming front-line care providers.
