OHS's computerized injury tracking system can closely monitor appropriate treatment of each individual's progress. Case management and employer communication begins at the time of injury.

Key components of this process include: verbal and written communication between all parties involved, work status reports to the employer, early "return to work" directives, appropriate referral networks, daily and monthly computerized reports, preferential care for injured workers, job assessments, and impairment ratings. In the area of rehabilitation services, we provide physical therapy and functional capacity examinations.
