ChronWell is disrupting the broken workers compensation system in America. We are enabling a new path forward for all parties to navigate the ins and outs of a system long-overdue for change. As we candidly confront the challenges of the task, we remain steadfast in our determination to enhance the lives of injured workers with compassion, respect and better care.
We’re bringing empathy back into the health care system and aligning injured workers with patient-centric services to speed recovery and ensure a welcome return to the workplace. Finding a more seamless resolution for worker-related accidents is the aim, not only for workers, but also for employers and insurers.
ChronWell offers a truly innovative solution to better serve the needs of injured workers. We pair skilled flesh-and-blood professionals with powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to bring about more humane and cost-effective outcomes.
ChronWell is here to lead the way for a new workers’ compensation system that is focused on better, more compassionate and more respectful care. ChronWell’s forward-thinking approach features cost-effective services that help injured workers more easily achieve claim resolution, recover and return to work faster — all at a lower cost to the employer.
Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, ChronWell was founded in 2017 by Dr. Joe Rubinsztain, Salomon Sredni and Sam Rubinsztain. The purpose: To disrupt the workers’ compensation system in America with an efficient, technology-driven approach. ChronWell is an innovative concept that enables workers to recover and return to work faster at a lower cost to the employer.
With a mobile platform and hybrid pairing of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with in-the-flesh health care and service professionals, ChronWell directs coordinated-care service from the onset of an injury through the resolution of a claim. By establishing lines of communication, streamlining administrative tasks, and bridging the gap between employee, employer and insurance company, the 21st Century workforce now has a 21st Century solution.
