ODG will be used for implementation and automation of evidence-based decision support for return-to-work, medical treatment, and risk assessment for Nominal Insurer workers’ compensation claims in the state.
icare Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Chris Colquhoun said: “We selected ODG as a partner because of their strong track record, evidence-based methodology, and unique customer experience. We conducted ample due diligence, and engaged other insurers and jurisdictions, who reported favorable experiences.
“The ODG will allow icare to ensure quality evidence-based care is delivered quickly, with auto-authorization and minimal friction to ensure injured workers receive the treatment they need as soon as possible. Furthermore, ODG is being customized with de-identified NSW claims specific data and Australian health-related codes to ensure all recommendations are aligned for the Australian context”, Dr. Colquhoun said.
