About Kura MD
Founded in 2013 based in Roseville, CA, Kura MD is the industry leader offering telehealth for workers’ compensation cases. Our primary focus is providing telehealth services to employers for injured workers. Kura MD’s physicians provide the full continuum of care including injury triage, full treatment plan coordination, determination of maximum medical improvement, and impairment ratings, when needed. Kura MD also provides general health telehealth physician consultations for non-work related illness or injury. The Kura MD Virtual Medical Clinic is accessible by phone or online using a smartphone, tablet, or computer and is OPEN 24/7/365.
“According to the AMA more than 70% of injury claims do not require clinical intervention and could be treated using telemedicine.”
What We Do
Kura MD brings the doctor to the patient with our virtual medical clinic and helps our clients with the complexity of filing workers’ compensation case reports for work related injuries. Using Kura MD’s cloud-based telehealth technology platform, electronic medical records, WC report filing system, and Kura MD physicians we provide the treatment injured workers need to get back to full function quickly and efficiently. We accomplish this using our integrated telehealth platform that connects all key stakeholders including the injured worker, physician, employer, claims administrator, and nurse case managers. Tele-video capabilities add improved diagnostic capabilities to standard telephonic communication and allows the physician to more effectively employ compassionate care and empathic communication skills when treating injured workers resulting in improved outcomes. Our physicians strive to provide caring and evidenced-based treatment plans to all our patients, and Kura MD provides its physicians the technology tools needed to improve patient outcomes within the workers’ compensation system.
Kura MD also deploys Bluetooth enabled vitals monitoring devices to capture a patient’s vitals remotely, for example tracking their blood pressure. Using Kura MD’s medical devices and phone app, data from a vitals monitoring device is automatically uploaded and transmitted into the patient’s telehealth portal.
