Workers' Compensation

The situation

An employee is injured on the job. What happens next is critical to the final outcome. The execution of a well organized Action Plan which includes all necessary parties, tends to bring about the best result for the injured worker and hence the employer. At the center of the plan is the injured employee.
Once an injury triggers the action plan, someone, in your organization, needs to be employee's advocate. This will result in the employee regaining the functional ability to perform at the workplace in the shortest time possible while avoiding many of the hidden costs of workers’ compensation. If an employee requires medical treatment beyond first aid, it is important for effective medical management to have close communication between the treating provider, insurance company, and the organization’s workers' compensation representative.

Injury Treatment & Follow-Up

Our medical center is equipped with x-ray, minor surgical and orthopedic facilities to care for the less serious injuries. Generally, if a person can be transported by an automobile, the injuries can be treated at IMA.
Physician will attempt to work closely with employer and employee to safely return the injured employee back to work as quickly as possible. Consideration of modified work will be made, if appropriate.

The IMA Advantage: We are the Specialists/Partners

Industrial Medical Associates has over twenty years experience as problem solvers in this arena. Choosing the right medical partner is critical to reducing costs. Our caring occupational health team of providers, nurses, technicians and medical management team ensures timely, aggressive treatment and keeps your employees on the job or safely returns them to full duty or modified duty as soon as possible. The knowledge that our team has of your workplace environments, perhaps even the injured employee from a pre placement exam helps to achieve the safe return to duty. Our medical team is always available to discuss cases with the company’s compensation representative. If a medical referral is needed, IMA has a preferred panel of specialists who are sensitive to the objective of the Action Plan.
For injury care after IMA's business hours, IMA has established relationships with emergency room departments so your employee does not get lost in the system. Thereafter, the employee may receive follow up care during our normal business hours.
