Medical Management

Our medical management team is ready to serve as your company’s single source for employee health services administration and coordination.

We have a long-standing history of experience and success in the prevention, treatment, and management of occupational and non-occupational injuries and illnesses.

We can help improve the overall health of your workforce, identify workplace safety issues, assist with compliance and regulatory requirements, minimize absence durations related to any kind of disability, and manage disability claims to closure.

As your medical management provider, we offer:

  • Medically driven methods. Our medical managers work collaboratively with treating physicians to streamline communications and provide expert guidance on clinical decisions and return-to-work strategies.

    When escalation is required, our nurse case managers can call upon one of our medical directors, who have treated injured employees in clinical settings, hold board specialty certifications as well as advanced degrees, and are considered subject matter experts in disability.

  • Focus on wellness and employment. Our case managers excel in identifying the potential for injury in the workplace as well as opportunities to improve your workforce’s overall health and wellness.

  • Proactive and compassionate management of disabled employees. Our case managers take pride in the fact that they are nurses, first and foremost. They provide a compassionate and holistic approach in their efforts to restore employees to productive employment.

  • Identifying and managing restrictions. Our medical managers collaborate with treating providers to clearly identify situations that support an early, safe return to work as well as those that may require a limited amount of lost time.

  • Effective communication.

  • Meaningful performance measures. We can provide a total program review, data analytics for injury and claim trends, isolation of cost drivers, and consultation on policy development.

  • Extensive experience in highly regulated industries. We have extensive knowledge in a variety of industries and understand the nuances and requirements placed upon them by federal, state and other regulatory agencies.

  • Access to industry-leading research, technology, and resources. As a division of UPMC, we have the ability to quickly access information about medical advances, cutting-edge technology, and ground-breaking research that may better serve our clients.
