WAYNE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When a catastrophic event occurs in the workplace, it is essential to have reliable resources to care for those with physical injuries as well as those who witnessed the traumatic event.
That’s why Genex’s catastrophic injury management and crisis response programs are essential to meeting the physical and mental needs of affected employees. The program combines the best of two industry-leading catastrophic care programs, Coventry and Genex, under their parent brand, Enlyte, to enable immediate response when critical events occur in the workplace.

In addition, the Crisis Response program is an excellent complement to our disaster program.
When a serious work accident occurs, Genex is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to receive calls and deploy a disaster triage team to perform an onsite assessment and assign the appropriate disaster case managers onsite. Genex has helped manage the care of those affected by catastrophic incidents, including helicopter crashes, train derailments, serious automobile accidents and natural disasters.
When an incident occurs, Genex’s catastrophic case managers come to hours and coordinate with employers or other designated oversight agencies to assist with the emergency response plan.

This is not only the right thing to do, but can also mitigate productivity losses at the individual and organizational level.
