How Does It Work?
In case of an injury, employees can call FIRST CALL, where they will be connected with a highly trained medical professional (RN, EMT or Kinesiologist). The medical professional will provide evidence-based recommendations and directives, using their knowledge and experience to provide the most relevant solutions to an injury while referencing the most current, up-to-date information available. All calls take place via telephone or a HIPPA-compliant telehealth virtual video platform.
FIRST CALL also offers inclusive care, with advice on return to work/short-term modified duties, first aid aftercare instructions, and follow-up calls with workers to ensure timely recovery. Immediate system-generated notifications and reports are available 24/7 for added convenience.
Disability Management Program
In cases of a prolonged injury, FIRST CALL provides a seamless transition to Precede’s Disability Management Program. All relevant information is ready and available for DM nurses to follow up with the file until the worker recovers and returns to work.

Overall, FIRST CALL by Precede is a game-changer for telehealth medical triage programs. With its real-time assessments, customizable reports, and inclusive care, FIRST CALL offers a range of benefits to both employers and employees, ensuring the best care possible in case of an injury.
