Part of my responsibility to our clients is to share any existing treatment modalities or data that can accelerate the healing process for the IW. That certainly makes sense from a cost containment perspective. MKCM recognizes that risk & claims managers as well as the adjusters have so much on their plate that anything we can provide to assist in the RTW MMI objective will not only positively affect the bottom line but will also mitigate legal and unnecessary referrals to specialists, medication, etc.
Example: Bone Growth Stimulators accelerate the healing process by 6 weeks. Yep. That’s right…Six Weeks. Or GAME READY devices can preset parameters of coolness so the IW can utilize as they sleep to once again accelerate the healing process. My degree in Public Health Education keeps me focused on medical trends and developments, for we all share one thing in common: we care about our Injured Workers!
