Restore Rehabilitation has recently launched a national telephonic case management service for recipients of workers’ compensation benefits.

Via this service, Restore’s telephonic case managers—who are registered nurses—contact injured employees directly, immediately after an injury, to assess their medical status and medical needs, determine the next steps in their treatment, assist in identifying physicians, and schedule appointments.

“On the first call, we tell the injured employee that the employer wants us to help them navigate the work comp system,” states Pam Anthony, RN, BSN, CDMS, CCM, president of Owings Mills, Md-based Restore Rehabilitation, in a media release. “Knowing your employer cares goes a long way.”

Other case manager services include following up on appointments, obtaining test results and medical records, and coordinating ancillary services. Back-to-work services include obtaining job descriptions; guiding return-to-work plans; monitoring psychosocial issues; and continually updating adjusters, employers, and other stakeholders, per the release.

“Our case managers are highly trained, credentialed, and extremely experienced in workers’ compensation,” Anthony adds.
