The most critical component of any occupational medicine program is the primary physician. This physician should be objective, but compassionate when dealing with the injured employee. Their first concern is in providing the highest quality health care available to the injured employee, while maintaining costs. Dr. Kevin Blackwell, Board Certified in Family Practice, has over ten years experience with occupational injuries. Dr. Blackwell will work closely with your company's safety program in returning injured employees back to work as quickly as medically possible.
Controlling Workers Compensation Costs
Workers Compensation costs have risen dramatically over the past 15 years, creating a new challenge to business and industry. While revenues and inflation have risen slightly, workers comp costs have doubled and tripled. OccuMed Health Center has the answer with our Workers Compensation program. The Workers Compensation program at OccuMed combines excellent health care with cost-containment services to help maintain your bottom-line when dealing with an injured employee.
A frequent problem encountered in workers' compensation is lack of communication between involved parties. Often the employer is left with the tedious task of getting the information from the health care provider. OccuMed Health Center will assist you in reviewing the injury status and plan of action by providing the following services:
- Free nurse case management. A nurse will contact the employer immediately after each employee visit to review the treatment plan and return-to-work status.
- A three-part injury treatment form will be sent to you.
- A computerized patient tracking report, including an injury summary sheet will be sent to you.
