MDGuidelines Return-to-Work Guidelines
Our return-to-work guidelines are based on the world’s deepest database of over two million disability cases and covering over 1,300 medical topics. They are the result of rigorous statistical analysis and the up-to-the-minute clinical expertise of leading physicians.
Reed Group believes that all parties benefit when fair, consistent, and accurate expectations regarding disability duration and return-to-work plans are developed and communicated. The use of return-to-work guidelines facilitates open dialogue among employees, employers, physicians, and case administrators, helping to get everyone working toward the same goal of full recovery and return to work. And, as a health care organization, we understand that getting people back to work is not only good for the employer, it is essential for the long-term mental and physical health of the employee.
MDGuidelines offers a robust data set that helps you achieve optimal employee disability outcomes. Each medical topic includes a succinct clinical description, information on diagnosis and prognosis, treatment and rehabilitation options, recommended disability durations based on severity and job requirements, and back-to-work accommodations. MDGuidelines can be enhanced with other capabilities including our proprietary Predictive Disability Duration Modeling, which provides individualized duration recommendations; ACOEM’s Treatment Guidelines; and the AMA’s CPT® Codes for medical procedures.
Used by the world’s leading TPAs, insurers, and employers, MDGuidelines is an essential tool for anyone who works with disability, workers’ compensation, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or occupational medicine programs.
