Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features ForeSight Medical’s announcement of the launch of their Encompass Specialty Surgical Network, a specialized orthopedic, spine and pain management surgical network for workers’ compensation payers.
ForeSight noted that it used its experience and surgical data and analytics platform to develop a narrow network of providers, physician groups and the ambulatory surgical centers that are customized for their surgical techniques. Encompass will manage surgery from the initial surgical consultation through discharge, aiming to streamline authorization, reserve-setting, scheduling, patient relations, billing, and payment processing. ForeSight noted that focus will be on quality of surgical outcomes, lower surgical revision rates and off-label utilization, and post-operative medical expenses that reduce return-to-work rates.
