San Jose, CA – Reed Group® MDGuidelines are featured in DataCare’s latest whitepaper “Calculating Hard-Dollar Returns on Return-to-Work Case Management”. In today’s competitive business climate, a managed care company must provide empirical data that supports its ability to control costs, increase efficiency, and increase the quality of care. The key metrics that the company can focus on are Return-to-Work (RTW) savings and related hard and soft savings. The latest whitepaper shows how to calculate net savings and RTW ROI.
Reed Group’s evidence-based recommendations provide a predicted disability duration (PDD) benchmark for each injured worker based on the injury, demographics, and co-morbidities. “Having quality evidence-based recommendations that inform the case manager of predicated disability durations is essential. We are committed to bringing our clients the most advanced tools that help them provide injured workers with timely and effective treatment,” said Jon Seymour, MD, Reed Group President.
According to Dr. Paulo Franca, President and Chief Technology Officer of DataCare Corporation, “DataCare’s integration with Reed Group is part of a growing trend to put easy-to-use predictive modeling tools in the hands of nurses and physicians. This will enable them to employ return-to-work guidelines that are more closely tailored for each patient based on factors such as age, job class, and the presence of additional (co-morbid) health conditions.”
