Results’ commitment to clinical excellence carries over to our care for injured workers. Our physical therapists are not only trained in the most advanced orthopedic evaluation skills and treatments, but also in how to deal with the nuances of a workers’ compensation claim.
Results Physiotherapy Works Program utilizes Result’s Clinical Excellence to drive optimal outcomes in Workers’ Compensation cases.
To achieve the most optimal outcomes, Physical Therapists must be trained at the highest level of orthopedic evaluation to provide an accurate assessment of an injured worker’s impairment. This assessment allows Result’s therapists to design the most specific treatment program for the injured worker, which optimizes functional recovery, decreases utilization and reduces case duration. It also gives the Result’s therapist the advantage when assessing patient compliance, presentation and consistency of effort.
This advantage is demonstrated in Result’s superior outcomes as measured by a third party outcomes measure (FOTO), where Results is in the 90th Percentile for treatment effectiveness. These outcomes result in reducing workers’ compensation costs and facilitate faster case closure, on average by eight days per claim.
Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs) provide a detailed assessment of an individual’s functional ability in the context of physical demands for employment. Result’s Physiotherapy uses a proprietary FCE product in order to provide consistency through internal training, mentoring and auditing. Our FCEs provide accurate interpretation to ensure validity and consistency of effort.
The Result’s FCE report provides return to work recommendations based on the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) work classification system and provides state specific measurements that can be utilized for impairment ratings.
Injured workers will be scheduled in a timely manner and reporting is received within 48 hours. In addition, our FCEs are always performed by a licensed Physical Therapist, never a Physical Therapist Assistant or Athletic Trainer.
Results Physiotherapy’s Work Conditioning Program is an intensive work specific conditioning program designed to restore an injured worker’s neurological, musculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary function. The program is designed to functionally progress the injured worker back to the ability to perform their essential functions of their occupation. Each session lasts between 2 and 8 hours, up to 5 days a week and addresses the injured worker’s physical needs, ergonomic concerns and work performance.
Results Physiotherapy can design, implement and perform Post Offer Employment Tests (POETs) that are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The tests are based on the determination of the position’s Essential Job Functions and ensure employers they are hiring candidates that match the physical demands of each position.
The POETs can also be utilized for establishing baseline performance in the event an employee is injured in the future.
Results Physiotherapy can assist employers in the prevention of work related musculoskeletal disorders through several early intervention programs.
Result’s Musculoskeletal Triage program, either on-site or in a Results Clinic, can assist with early identification of musculoskeletal disorders or avert potentially more serious worker’s comp claims. Result’s can also provide Job Site Analyses, Hazard Risk Analyses and ergonomic educational programs, assisting employers in creating a safer work environment.
