One of our primary goals is to enhance patient recovery and reduce employer costs through our Work Transition Program. Referred to in the insurance industry by such names as “Transitional Work”, “Early Return to Work”, and “Rehabilitation at Work”, our innovative approach utilizes a modified duty schedule to return an injured employee to work much earlier than traditional programs allow. In addition to the cost savings for the employer, the patient's recovery is enhanced by the positive engagement in the rehabilitation process:

  • 85% of patients successfully return to work.
  • Disability days are decreased.
  • The “sick role” mentality is eliminated.
  • Actual work, in the patient's own familiar work setting, becomes the rehabilitation medium.
  • A positive focus is placed on the patient's abilities.
  • Experienced staff members will not remain off the job for long periods of time.
  • The patient remains connected and in the routine of working.
  • Some level of productivity is maintained for both the patient and the employer.
  • The program's term is usually a short 60 days.
  • Safe work methods are promoted and proper body mechanics are reinforced to the patient while working.
  • Patients are encouraged to obtain meaningful, positive work assignments.
  • Consistent treatment of patients is promoted.
  • The program allows our attending physician to give frequent updates to the employer on the patient's progress.
  • Patients receive progressively expanded work assignments, in conjunction with their recovery, until they have reached their pre-injury capacity.
