We Believe There is a Solution

With the catalyst of California legislation allowing for the development of Health Care Organizations (HCO) in 1994, and the additional Medical Provider Network (MPN) legislation in 2004, the concept to develop customized networks to assist employers and payers in controlling medical treatment and costs, was established. We quickly saw the value of a "cradle to grave" medical control solution and realized the potential of networks that could be created by nomination and invitation with the right providers, who know and understand the workers' compensation environment.

While other networks were putting an MPN label on their PPO and keeping the concept of penetration and discounts intact, we chose to build networks from the ground up with only those providers that could deliver results. We believe, when we bring to the table the right physicians, including those who are board-certified occupational health specialists, primary care and specialist who know and understand workers' compensation, and have a track record of providing the right treatment and sustained Return to Work (RTW) results, you have a quality network with greater impact in controlling medical and indemnity costs. We also believe the savings on medical and indemnity would far exceed the perceived savings of deep discounts.

With our proven formula and success of building custom networks in California, we launched nationwide.

To ensure success, we also built processes with strong medical management tools and a "common sense" approach that incorporated a model of "Best Practices." With the "Plus Factor" component of triaging every single case on a "real time" basis with Utilization Review (UR) and embedded UR components, Nurse Case Management, Telephonic and Field, and our Medical Director and panel of Physician Advisors and Peers, greater savings were achieved.
