IEOM is an independent clinic, which
combines our old dedication and commitment to being
the "best" at industry medicine with innovative
strategies for improvment management and communication--all
in a clinic conveniently close to you. There are certain
special aspects of our program that I want to point
out for your consideration, in the hope that you might
want to visit our clinic and learn more about how
we can help you improve control and thereby reduce
your workers' compensation cost.
First, we have a staff that is in agreement
on the philosophy of looking out for the employer's
best interests while taking good care of the employee's
health and medical needs. There is an art to doing
this manner which satisfies the needs of both parties,
and our practitioners are well experienced in both
the art and the science of occupational medicine.
Besides providing all the standard services
offered by top industrial clinics, we have developed
certain additional programs which are unique to IEOM.
Our "physician-direction team case management
is generating much enthusiasm among both companies
and insurers. This is because it allows our physician
to continue to "manage" the case all the
way through, thus exerting much tighter control and
remaining the primary communication resource for both.
While this may not come into importance in most cases,
for those 10-15% "problem" cases that wind
up producing most of the workers' comp cost, this
extra involvement by our physician can be extremely
valuable. It is especially effective for us in that
we work with selected independent providers who have
committed to this philosophy and protocol. (And all
our providers are, in fact, independent, including
physical therapy, so we are not tempted to mis-use
or over-use such referrals.)
