#18:The Comorbidity Calculator™: Target and tailor best practice return-to-work date to the individual and benchmark claims data with pinpoint accuracy
Stop looking for Waldo.
He is right where he's supposed to be.
After a work injury left him with serious but stable injuries to the head and chest. He's older now, with multiple confounding factors including diabetes and hypertension, thus target date for RTW and modified duty duration are set a bit longer than otherwise.
If the ODG targets are not met, however, interventions are set to trigger using both best practice and claim profile data from from the Comorbidity Calculator.
In summary, RTW intelligence has never been better. No need to worry or wonder how comorbid conditions, demographics, and age interact to influence recovery time and projected disability duration.
Just ping the Comorbidity Calculator.
Use the export function in ODG, or find it in the Toolbox dropdown in the Navigator Toolbar. Better yet, automate it from your claims system with a little tinkering from IT under guidance from ODG.
