Owings Mills, MD – Restore Rehabilitation, a medical and vocational case management company focused on reducing the cost of workers’ compensation claims, recently introduced field case management services into the state of Tennessee. The company has hired four, full-time medical and vocational case managers and a sales representative in the state and anticipates rapid growth.
Restore’s field case managers are registered nurses with advanced credentials and at least 10 years of experience in workers’ compensation. Most often used on complex cases involving multiple body parts, amputations, severe burns, spinal cord damage, and comorbidities, field case managers are also helpful with unwitnessed or questionable injuries.
Ideally, field case managers assess injured employees immediately after an injury to determine medical status and needs. They help identify high quality medical providers and potential return-to-work hurdles, while progressing the file safely and as quickly as possible to reach full return-to-work status or maximum medical improvement.
“Based on our research, Tennessee represents a nice growth trajectory for Restore and I’m excited to welcome a stellar team to our organization,” said Restore Rehabilitation President and CEO Pam Anthony. “We appreciate our field case managers’ ability to demonstrate reduced claim duration and a positive impact on claim financials.”
Case managers facilitate the return-to-work process by setting expectations, obtaining full-duty job descriptions and creating realistic work restrictions with employers and providers.
“We make sure that all paperwork is timely and accurate and continually update all stakeholders to prevent any disruptions to the claim life cycle,” Anthony added.
Restore Rehabilitation, which also provides telephonic case management nationally, now has field case managers in 21 jurisdictions. In addition to Tennessee, these are Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
