MedRisk Adds Telerehabilitation to its Managed Physical Medicine Offering for Workers’ Compensation
Pennsylvania-based MedRisk is integrating telerehabilitation into its Platinum Grade Program for managed physical medicine services for injured workers. MedRisk’s innovative approach uses telecommunications technologies to enable licensed physical therapists to work with injured workers from their homes or workplaces.
The program uses screening tools and data analytics to identify injured workers who are likely to embrace the technology and benefit from a blend of in-clinic physical therapy and telerehabilitation. HIPPA-compliant video conferencing technology connects a physical therapist on MedRisk’s staff with the injured worker for guided treatment sessions.
The on-staff physical therapist assesses the injured worker and develops a treatment strategy that customizes the most appropriate telerehabilitation solutions for that patient. Solutions include a dynamic library of instructional videos and other store-and-forward materials to support patient education. Emerging technology such as three-dimensional motion tracking demonstrates the correct way to do an exercise and monitors the patient’s performance, providing instant feedback to prompt corrections. This remote patient monitoring technology also captures clinical data on performance, progress and compliance so clinicians can maximize care management.
Mitchell, Bosch Collaborate to Deliver Claims Collision Diagnostic Tool
San Diego-based Mitchell, a provider of technology, connectivity and information products to the property & casualty (P&C) claims and collision repair industries, is collaborating with Bosch Automotive Service Solutions in North America to deliver the Mitchell Diagnostics system, a comprehensive diagnostic system designed specifically for the collision repair and automotive claims markets. The Mitchell Diagnostics system is expected to be available by June 30, 2017.
The new tool will provide an end-to-end diagnostic system that combines appraisal and repair workflow applications with Bosch’s advanced aftermarket scan tools. This should contribute to increased productivity, a smoother repair process and enhanced levels of customer service.
Bosch scan tools offer Electronic Control Unit (ECU) reprogramming, as well as optional accessories that include a target system for recalibrating Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) kit.
The patent-pending Mitchell Diagnostics system validates that the VIN on the scan report matches the VIN on the vehicle from which data is pulled. This scan report can be used to support repair billing, and offers both carriers and repairers a record showing that the vehicle had a clean scan at the completion of the repair process.
The system may be used to add scan reports to any of the industry’s major estimating, repair management and claims processing systems. These scan reports can easily be saved as PDF documents and dropped into a folder used for vehicle damage images by the user of the Mitchell Diagnostics system.
