MedRisk Launches Program to Reduce Long-Term Workers’ Comp Cases

November 19, 2014

Pa.-based MedRisk, a provider of physical rehabilitation and diagnostic imaging solutions for the workers’ compensation industry, has launched the Restore program.

Restore is a program designed to reduce delayed recovery cases by integrating MedRisk’s physical medicine solution with a recognized approach incorporating psychosocial barrier identification and resolution.

Historically, solutions for delayed recovery cases have focused on eliminating or reducing pain symptoms. However, current research now shows that psychosocial barriers to recovery account for more than three times the variance in the magnitude of disability. By addressing psychosocial barriers, the program—in combination with physical rehabilitation—promotes reintegration into life-role activities, increases quality of life for patients and facilitates return to work.
