Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
Atlanta – February 26, 2013 – Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Cypress Care, ScripNet and Procura Management, today announced that the company has been named as a finalist in two categories for the fourth annual Case In Point Platinum Awards sponsored by Dorland Health. The company’s Transitional Employment Program was recognized as a finalist in the workers’ compensation case management category and Healthcare Solutions’ Patricia Angus, RN, BSN, MS, CRC, was recognized as a finalist in the workers’ compensation case manager category.
Healthcare Solutions’ Transitional Employment Program works to reduce workers’ compensation costs and expedite the injured employee’s return to work. The program places employees released to modified or light duty to work as temporary volunteers at local non-profit organizations until they can return to their pre-injury positions. Transitional employment empowers the injured worker to remain active in the workforce and learn new skills by providing them with meaningful work. It allows the employer to help their injured worker while keeping costs down and provides area non-profits in need with a regular volunteer.
“Healthcare Solutions’ Transitional Employment Program continues to grow through reaching new injured workers, new employer groups and new nonprofit entities looking for help,” said Tina Downey, senior vice president of managed care services for Healthcare Solutions. “Healthcare Solutions has placed over 540 injured workers nationwide in the program who devote approximately six weeks of their time to non-profits before returning to full work capacity.”
Patricia Angus has been in case management for 14 years and is an integral part of Healthcare Solutions’ case management team. Angus draws on her in-depth experience in workers’ compensation disability and medical case management and takes a proactive approach to care coordination, patient advocacy and cost containment.
The Case In Point Platinum Awards finalists were selected based on a number of criteria, including: innovation, leadership, behavioral change, patient education and empowerment, improvement in effectiveness and efficiency, and cost containment. The Awards recognize the most successful and innovative programs and individuals working to improve healthcare across the care continuum.
“This is the company’s third consecutive year being recognized by Dorland Health.” said David A. George, chief executive officer for Healthcare Solutions. “Healthcare Solutions’ case management team continues to deliver high quality health care services focused on the support of each injured worker’s return-to-work and maximum medical improvement goals.”
To honor the finalists of the Platinum Awards Program, Dorland Health will host an awards luncheon on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.
