Finding the right physician to treat a work-related injury is a crucial step in ensuring that an employee can return to work in a safe and timely manner. But with hundreds of physicians to choose from, how can you determine who the best doctor to treat a workers' compensation patient is? While there might be many doctors to choose from, not all physicians offer the same quality of care. It is essential to take the time to identify qualified, reputable workers' compensation doctors that meet your needs. By choosing the right healthcare provider, the cost of a claim can be significantly reduced, and the worker can experience a long-term, healthy outcome.
We believe that the right workers' compensation doctor should provide high-value services. This means that the physician produces good outcomes for the patient at a comparatively lower cost overall. For an injured worker, a good outcome generally means effective and compassionate care delivered with minimal discomfort and disruption to their lives. For an employer, the goal is to get the worker back to work promptly, ensuring a long-term healthy outcome to achieve the best productivity results for the company.
While every physician will differ in their approach to care and treatment, a high-value physician should at a minimum do the following:
· Employ 'best practices' in medical treatment, offering appropriate tests, procedures, specialized services, and coordination of care.
· Focus on functional recovery to return the worker to their employment in a way that has a minimal disruption in their life.
· Treat all parties with courtesy and respect.
· Provide consistently positive medical outcomes for the patient.
Evaluation of Services
At Nebula Marketing Solutions, we know how essential it is to choose the right medical provider. Our expert team focuses on several key criteria to find the right workers' compensation doctor for your worker.
We identify qualified physicians in your geographic area who are willing and able to take workers' compensation patients. We consult with state medical societies and other medical groups to find reputable doctors.
Determine Basic Suitability
Once we have identified suitable candidates, we ensure that the workers' compensation doctor will be able to meet the needs of the worker. This includes an assessment of whether the worker can access the doctor's office in reasonable driving time, and whether the physician can treat the injured worker on a walk-in or same-day basis. In addition to an assessment of the doctor's credentials, we aim to identify doctors who are familiar with the laws around work-related injuries. We determine whether the physician has experience treating injuries from a particular industry or work setting.
Learn About the Physician's Practice Style and Outcomes
We look for physicians who provide a barrier-free office setting and offer reasonable wait times. Courteous communication from both the doctor and the staff is also essential. If possible, we look for workers' compensation doctors who are willing to document their own performance and outcomes. This allows us to evaluate the doctor's measure of success in treating workers' compensation patients.
