Abstract

As employers seek to mitigate the impact of the cost and duration workers’ compensation cases, companies are increasingly using integrated solutions to improve employee health and productivity. A key component is early intervention by a skilled clinical professional - a professional case manager. Case managers, particularly those who are board certified, have the requisite knowledge, skills, and expertise to act in a care coordination role to ensure access to the right care and treatment at the optimal time, in pursuit of desired outcomes - especially a successful return to work. Case managers also take a holistic approach that looks at the entire person, with communication and collaboration skills that builds consensus among stakeholders and increases buy-in by the injured employee. Through professional case management services, win/win solutions are pursued to meet the needs of the employee and the employer.
