The WorkCare Approach to Workers’ Compensation
WorkCare believes that effective control of workers’ compensation expenses requires the participation of the medical provider, the employer, the employer’s workers compensation carrier, and the patient. Since even a seemingly minor work-related injury can become complicated, having a treatment structure and plan in place is essential.
WorkCare serves as the initial medical provider for many employers. Our medical staff provide expert medical care and we actively communicate our findings with the employer. Our approach helps minimize instances where the care provider issues an order for excessive lost worktime. Our approach emphasizes staying on the job and remaining productive.
We stress the importance of employers to report all work-related injuries to their compensation carrier. This alert allows the carrier to apply case management on an early intervention basis.
WorkCare is your occupational healthcare resource
Since substantial reductions in lost worktime can be realized by utilizing light or modified duty, the WorkCare approach emphasizes the importance for employers to return employees to duty in whatever capacity possible. WorkCare provides modified duty recommendations which are realistic and allow the employee to work without worsening their injury or delaying their recovery.
