MidAmerica’s Orthopaedic Immediate Care is an integral part of our Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Medicine programs.
Why? Orthopaedic Immediate Care means that your employees are seen by our orthopedic specialists right from the beginning when an injury occurs.
Definitive care is provided from the onset, whether that individual needs physical or occupational therapy, fracture care, laceration repair, or surgery. Surgical procedures can be performed on an urgent basis at our Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgery Center if necessary.
No longer do your employees need to utilize costly emergency room services or traditional occupational medicine clinics only to then be triaged to a specialist afterwards. Definitive care by our Orthopaedic Specialists means that your injured workers are receiving more cost effective and timely care.
This will not only serve to improve their morale following their injury but will also inevitably return them to restricted duty and to the workplace much quicker.
We are all aware that disability payments represent over 50% of the cost of a workers’ compensation claim and that the longer an employee is off work and not at the workplace reduces the percentages that they will ever return to full duty work.
As an employer you have many aspects to your business. You must provide for the health and safety of your employees, reduce the ancillary costs of conducting business through aggressive risk management while maintaining growth and profitability.
Reducing the costs of your workers’ compensation claims is an important component of your risk management program. MidAmerica’s Orthopaedic Immediate Care will allow you to obtain the maximum value for your workers’ compensation dollars and the highest quality of medical care for your employees.
