Expert Clinical Case Management
Nurses conduct in-depth clinical case management which begins with our Reverse Triage method. This process, unique to Reed Group, ensures that every disability case is reviewed by a Nurse Case Manager who establishes a care plan with relevant levels of clinical intervention.
Disability cases with Reed Group have an emphasis on Return-to-Work from the onset and are actively managed toward that goal. Reed Group nurses integrate rigorous clinical protocols into all employee guidance, basing recommendations and coaching on medical knowledge, extensive training and experience.
Predictive Modeling Tools For Optimal Durations
Reed Group’s clinical case management expertise begins with MDGuidelines, our proprietary database of physician-reviewed and evidence-based cases. Based on physiological healing time, the MDGuidelines predictive modeling capabilities provide individualized absence duration recommendations for each individual based on their specific circumstances.
Innovative data analytics capabilities identify the potential for absenteeism by examining disability trends, benchmarking your organization’s experience against industry standards and company comparables, then proactively identifying employees with high indicators for future claims. Reed Group works with you to implement strategies that lower incidence and duration and prevent short term disabilities from transitioning to long term disabilities.
We combine deep clinical expertise with the flexibility to integrate with employee health and productivity initiatives, benefit and risk programs, and human resources outsourcing organizations. STD integration options include Workers’ Compensation, disease management, employee assistance programs, behavioral health intervention, and insurance benefits.
Reed Group provides a suite of reports specific to your employee population, providing summary statistics, determinations, absence approval or denial information, trends and analyses. Real time on-line reporting options are available 24/7 and available for customizable searching and downloadable formatting types. Quarterly reporting packages provide you with a snapshot of total absence experience for workforce planning and program adjustment.
Our disability management services are supported by our custom-designed software platform which provides a comprehensive framework for activities and tasks related to disability. Powerful tracking and notification features keep you and your employees informed efficiently and drive our clinically focused case management model.
