ClaimVantage’s cloud computing disability claims system is now available with Reed Group’s MDGuidelines, a return-to-work (RTW) reference toolset with more than 1,300 topics. MDGuidelines includes evidence-based, physician-reviewed RTW duration guidelines; a powerful predictive modeling tool that enables case managers to tailor guidelines to individual employees; medical monographs suitable for educating employees; and occupational treatment guidelines by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, according to ClaimVantage.

A key product feature of MDGuidelines is identified as the toolset’s two types of RTW durations: idealized durations, the actual time it takes for the injury or illness to heal; and real-world durations based on millions of cases. ClaimVantage says that comparing both types of durations allows case managers to identify psychosocial factors that extend recovery times and apply additional resources as needed to help employees return to their normal productive endeavors.
