Early Return to Work

Northwest Disability Management specializes in pro-active return-to-work services for both occupational and non-occupational injuries or illness. These efforts result in productive light-duty positions developed with careful consideration of medical work guidelines, ongoing business needs of the employer, involvement of the employee and commitment to a successful transitional work program.

Timely communication with all individuals involved in the return-to-work effort is essential to its success. Consider these benefits of a carefully developed return-to-work program:

  • Reduced medical cost: active involvement with medical staff prevents over treatment, improves delivery of appropriate and effective services and encourages doctors to look at ability to work, not just disability:
  • Improved communications by managing employee expectations; team building; integration goals with physicians, workers comp providers and supervisors
  • Loss of productivity: improve the identification of meaningful work, employee satisfaction and loss of valuable management hours to coordinate the adjustment of assignments or hiring temporary help hiring sustained periods of employee absence.
  • Maximize the therapeutic benefit of transitional work in facilitating physical and emotional recovery through supportive, well-organized return-to-work protocols.
