Paladin Managed Care Services Introduces New Field Case Management Program
Santa Ana - July 25, 2011
Paladin Managed Care Services announced today the nationwide launch of its new Field Case Management service, to be offered to self-insured employers, public entities, insurance companies, group health, and third-party administrators. Available directly from Paladin Managed Care Services, the new Field Case Management service monitors and guides an injured worker's medical treatment to improve the effectiveness of rehabilitation efforts and maximize prospects for a timely and complete return to work. This benefits the injured worker by providing a faster and more complete recovery, while delivering bottom line medical and indemnity cost savings to Paladin's clients, and better control of premium costs for those that purchase insurance.
This new service offering is the latest achievement in the company's ongoing efforts to broaden its comprehensive suite of managed care services, and is built upon the same physician-centric approach that has made Paladin's other products highly successful in achieving superior results for its clients. Paladin's expert medical doctors regularly review and monitor large and complex cases to assure that prescribed rehabilitation services are the most appropriate and effective available for the injury and that progress made meets or exceeds generally accepted industry standards and established return to work goals. Paladin's physicians also consult as needed, with field case managers, giving ready access to advanced medical expertise and facilitating better outcomes.
Jeffrey Miller, COO of Paladin, said: "Our new Field Case Management capability is an exciting enhancement to our care management product suite, building upon the proven services Paladin provides nationwide. Purchased separately or with our Professional Bill Review, Clinical Bill Review, or Utilization Review services, this new offering further leverages our physician-driven service model. Field Case Management has been shown to improve injured employee return to work, and will further strengthen Paladin's ability to help our clients achieve superior results."
