Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) February 19, 2006
WorkersCompensation.com has announced the opening of a new Clinical Case Management Forum to be moderated by Richard S. Kaplan, M.D. Dr. Kaplan is a Mayo Clinic-trained specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation with over 15 years experience managing workers compensation injuries and performing related case reviews and consulting services.
In moderating this Forum, Dr. Kaplan will be available to answer questions and provide tips regarding basic or complex clinical case management questions. The Forum is a good opportunity to get tips on red flags to send a case for utilization/peer review, how to critique or rebut an IME report, how to read between the lines in medical records, how to assess the medical necessity of new technology, how you can offer litigation support services when your cases go to court, and much more. This forum should be of particular interest to clinical case managers, HR professionals, and others involved in processing workers' compensation, medical, and disability claims.
WorkersCompensation.com has had an extremely active threaded Discussion Area for several years, but the Clinical Case Management Forum is the first moderated board offered by the company. Robert Wilson, president of WorkersCompensation.com, says "we are pleased to have Dr. Kaplan participating as a moderator for this service. He offers an important knowledge base that will be of great value to our website visitors. This new service brings an entirely new dynamic to our Discussion Forum area".
The Forum may be found at http://www.workerscompensation.com/forums/casemanager.
