NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — DecisionUR (DUR) has announced that its web-based workers’ compensation utilization review software will now include the New York Treatment Guidelines as well as the ACOEM portion of the California MTUS treatment guidelines.
DecisionUR will integrate Reed Group’s MDGuidelines With New York Treatment Guidelines, which contains both proprietary licensed content from ACOEM (American College of Environmental and Occupational Medicine) as well as Reed Group’s proprietary data crosswalks that allow navigation of the New York Guidelines by CPT (medical procedure) and ICD (diagnostic) codes. DUR also will incorporate the ACOEM content of the California MTUS.
Reed Group’s MDGuidelines navigation software is used by the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board and is the only product on the market that is licensed to distribute the ACOEM portion of the New York Treatment Guidelines.
DecisionUR’s software “pre-scrubs” workers’ compensation claims to ensure they qualify with medical treatment guidelines. By automating the application of specific, proven medical protocols, DUR is a highly effective cost-containment tool, offering users flexible pricing by transaction or licensing.
“Integrating MDGuidelines With New York Treatment Guidelines makes DecisionUR the must-have utilization product for anyone working in the New York workers’ comp industry,” says DecisionUR Medical Director Lester Sacks, MD. “Reed Group’s MDGuidelines makes it easy to navigate the New York Treatment Guidelines and ACOEM content for MTUS. We’re very pleased to offer the power of their content and search tools to our customers.”
“DecisionUR is an essential tool for the cost-effective adoption of state guidelines,” says Jon Seymour, MD, president, guidelines, for Reed Group. “We’re excited to offer integration of MDGuidelines with DUR’s excellent software and, thereby, make adoption of state treatment guidelines easier for all workers’ comp stakeholders.”
DecisionUR’s software is used by payors, providers, third-party administrators (TPAs) independent review organizations (IRAs), utilization review organizations (URAs) and other stakeholders throughout the workers’ compensation industry.
