JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One Call Care Management (One Call), the nation’s leading provider of workers’ compensation care management services, and Broadspire, a division of Crawford & Company and leading global third-party administrator, today announced a partnership to develop a customized patient-centric amputee program.
The amputee program will not only benefit existing amputees requiring a replacement prosthetic, but also injured workers with recent amputations requiring a holistic review process and access to best-in-care providers.
“Across every aspect of our program, we strive to provide a seamless and consultative approach to care management,” said Dr. Marcos Iglesias, chief medical officer of Broadspire. “We have chosen to partner with One Call because we believe their program, integrated with Broadspire’s clinical team, will deliver optimal results for the amputees we serve.”
Claims adjustors will also benefit from non-biased clinical expertise provided through an American Board Certified Prosthetist who will assist in validating recommendations to support providers and injured workers with selecting the most suitable prosthetic based on each individual’s level of function.
“As artificial limb technology advances and claims costs continue to rise, it is essential to have clinical programs that are at the forefront of innovation,” said Will Smith, chief product officer at One Call. “One Call’s 360 degree review process for injured workers – from discharge through recovery, to establishing return to work goals and functional independent outcomes – in combination with our premier network of rehabilitation hospitals, provides healthier outcomes for our injured workers and savings for our payers.”
