Mending Physical Medicine Failures
Risk Scenarios Live! brings to life the popular feature in Risk & Insurance® to create an engaging experience unlike any other at the conference.
Moderated by Tracy Davanport, director, national managed care, Argonaut Insurance Co., this session with Dr. Robert Goldberg, chief medical officer, Healthesystems, and Dr. Jeffrey Sugar, associate medical director, occupational medicine, Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group, features a multi-media case study to examine an overlooked area of workers’ comp: physical medicine.
Practiced properly, it is a crucial tool in getting an injured worker healthy and back to work. But often, physical medicine approaches fail, needlessly increasing costs. Robert Goldberg and Jeffrey Sugar will dissect a claim that went awry due to poor physical medicine practice, pointing out lessons that will improve injured-worker care.
