24 Hour Physician Consulting Services

Years of experience have convinced us that one of the best ways to assure great patient care for injured workers is to get involved early.  Too often patients go to the ER and then are referred to whichever physician is on call that day.  And typically patients are put off work until the local clinic physician, which could take several days or more, sees them.  In addition, neither the ER physician nor the clinic physician tasked with seeing the patient in follow-up has any idea what your business consists of, what the environment and physical demands on the patient are, or whether you can accommodate light duty if needed.  The default position ends up being “Off work until seen by clinic doctor.”

Midwest Occupational Medicine has established a nationwide network of associated clinics that communicate effectively with our physicians too achieve positive outcomes.

Our client companies find that our 24 hour on-call program offers a true win-win. The injured employee benefits from the involvement of a knowledgeable Occupational Medicine physician, who has knowledge of the workplace environment, potential exposures, and the physical demands of the job. The company benefits from the consultation between the Occupational Medicine specialist and the treating provider, ensuring quality care, timely follow-up, and rapid resolution with good outcomes. Additionally, the consulting Occupational Medicine specialist understands the issues of lost time, recordability and reportability.
