Manchester, NH (PRWEB) April 22, 2011
Windham Group, provider of Return to Work Solutions to the healthcare industry and employers today announced the publication of a case study demonstrating Job Fit Analysis success in return to work claims.
The Windham Group Job Fit Analysis (JFA) is a claims response tool that modifies the work environment for someone who remains out of work, with or without a work release or someone who is working but in pain and is not recovering.
The case study describes a debilitating shoulder injury, hospital treatment and recurrence, which would have led to additional surgery and painful rehabilitation. A Job Fit Analysis was performed prior to the second round of surgery. Subsequent modifications to the workplace through Windham Groups proprietary JFA protocol completely resolved the issues and the patient was pain-free after only three days. The planned surgery was cancelled and the patient is back to work without any residual symptoms.
“The Windham Group JFA reduces risk of re-injury, minimizes future claims from being filed by other employees and establishes a greater support to return to work by that employer.” said Drew Rice, Director of Ergonomic Services, Windham Group.
“The JFA is a cost-efficient way to prevent costly and debilitating injuries. The workplace modifications are based on ergonomic science and our long experience in the field.”
The modifications are usually not costly or particularly complicated when based on a proper Job Fit Analysis. Windham Group JFA evaluators are experts in overcoming employer objections, identifying risk factors and implementing no/low cost, high impact modifications that will benefit both insurer and insured.
“Windham Group has demonstrated through years of experience, that soft tissue pain complaints have created an opportunity for cost-effective, positive change in work environments that increase productivity and reduce injuries over a broad range of work environments” said Sebastian Grasso, President and CEO of Windham Group.
“This case study is a good example of how a Job Fit Analysis can have a huge impact on even the toughest cases”
