Disability Absence Management
When your employees are out of work for three or more days due to a personal injury, Axiom’s Employee Absence Management services offer around the clock care to ensure a safe and quick return to work. Our nurses act as a guide for the injured employee throughout the entire recovery journey while also keeping the employer updated of his/her return status. In addition to evaluating an employee’s current disability and establishing appropriate treatment plans, Axiom also manages all the necessary documentation such as FMLA forms. Other EAM services include:
- Return to Work – Our team of registered nurses will determine when your employees are safe to return to work with a Fit For Duty Exam (FFD). The FFD enables them to return to the job safely while maximizing productivity.
- Medication Reviews – Appropriate medication management is instrumental in the safety and productivity of an employee when they return to their job. Axiom’s registered nurses will gauge the safety of your employees by reviewing a medication’s effectiveness, dosage and potential side effects that could impact their ability to safely perform their working duties. HIPAA compliant medication reviews cut down on medical claim costs, lowers your short-term disability costs, and provides a quick and safe return to work.
- Functional Capacity Evaluations – Do your employees have what it physically takes to do their job? Axiom offers Functional Capacity Exams (FEC), which can be used during the pre-hire process to correctly determine if the employee hired is capable of doing the work activities of their job. Choose between a modified (most common) FCE or a full FCE. The Functional Capacity Exam is more comprehensive than the DOT or non-DOT physical, and assesses every employee’s job function based on specific testing tailored for that role.
