Injury Management and Early Intervention
OccuMED provides early intervention injury management to a number of clients and industries.
OccuMED acts as the primary treating doctor/specialist for injured employees and provides early, proactive treatment/management of an injury to facilitate optimal recovery and early return to work.
The early intervention service provides an avenue for a worker to be treated quickly and effectively without issuance automatically of an initial WorkCover medical certificate or involvement of the workers’ compensation insurer.
As an occupational medicine practice (accredited by the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine), OccuMED’s focus is on effective, timely treatment for early return to work, performing a gatekeeper role for cost effective and optimal treatment of workers’ injuries.
The fees are set by WorkCover WA/AMA Schedule of Rates and medical certificates are issued on the same day.
Consultations can be provided in the clinic or via combination of in-clinic and telehealth modalities.
OccuMED’s doctors are specialist Occupational Physicians and Registrars specifically trained and specialised in the treatment and management of work-related disorders. OccuMED’s biopsychosocial approach is based upon best available research evidence to minimise cost and maximise outcome.
