Windham Group Establishes New IME Company Serving Workers’ Comp Industry

N.H.-based The Windham Group has launched Logical IME, a new independent medical examination company serving workers’ compensation payers.

Conducted by physicians who specialize in treating the condition and who have not previously cared for the injured employee, an IME involves a comprehensive medical record review and physical examination. IME reports render objective, expert opinions on diagnosis and treatment and are often used to determine return-to-work capacity and disability ratings, identify treatment options, and help settle claims. Logical IME was created to manage and streamline the process and provide pricing transparency to the industry.

Logical IME simplifies the entire process, from referral to report. The company identifies physician examiners, schedules appointments, arranges transportation and translation services, and manages other details.

IME reports undergo quality assurance review and are formatted and color-coded to provide fast, coherent and concise findings that claims handlers can use immediately. Logical IME is rolling out services regionally, starting with New England and plans to provide services nationally within the next six to 12 months.

Swiss Re Breaks Ground on Company’s Largest Solar Power Installation in the World at U.S. Headquarters

Global reinsurer Swiss Re recently broke ground on the largest solar power installation in Westchester County. When completed in late Spring 2017, the solar plant will occupy 10 acres of space in the Southeast corner of Swiss Re’s U.S. Headquarters campus in Armonk, New York.

More than 7,700 individual solar panels will provide two megawatts of power generation, making it the largest installation of its type permitted in the state of New York. The plant is expected to generate, on average, 60 percent of the power required by the 700 employees that work on-site at Swiss Re’s campus. It will be the latest – and largest – addition to Swiss Re’s global footprint of such installations, which includes solar power plants in Switzerland, Italy, and the U.K.

Swiss Re is a founding member of the RE100 initiative, a global initiative of influential businesses committed to utilizing 100 percent renewable energy sources by 2020. The construction of the solar power plant in Armonk is one of the biggest efforts that Swiss Re will be making globally to meet that commitment.
