We provide fast and efficient turnaround times and access to health care and qualified providers specializing in all areas of medicine.
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a scientifically developed, objective process to measure a worker's physical capabilities and tolerances following an on the job injury.
The FCE is an important tool used to assist employers, physicians, insurance companies, attorneys, case managers and vocational consultants to determine safe, functional levels for an individual to either return to work or to establish functional ability.
Certified case managers facilitate timely and appropriate medical care by navigating the complex medical health system by removing barriers to medical care through productive, proactive and responsive care coordination ensuring timely access for a safe and timely recovery.
Banner Occupational Health is available to care for workers who have been exposed to hazardous body fluids that may be infected with life-threatening diseases such as HIV and hepatitis. A medical provider is on call 24-hours a day to talk through the exposure and determine if preventive drug therapy is necessary.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that a prescription be started within a 2-hour time frame to reduce the chance of contracting HIV. Banner Health and Walgreen's 24-hour drug stores have teamed up to provide prompt service. Your employee will be directed to the nearest Walgreen's pharmacy where their prescription will be waiting.
Follow-up care provides counseling, testing and immunizations; all very important in providing peace of mind for your employee.
