Fitness For Duty (FFD) assessments address the relevant issues relating to an individual’s non-compensable medical conditions and their effect on the individual’s capacity to perform their normal job role safely and efficiently. Practical advice is given regarding the management of the relevant influences and – in the case of an absence from work – the individual’s return-to-work capability in either their normal or alternative duties.
A Workplace Assessment can be conducted as part of the IME process to have the opportunity to thoroughly understand the demands and dynamics of the workplace. This enables us to provide a well-informed, tailored and balanced opinion on the cause of a claimed workplace injury and the individual’s capacity to return to work under a safe and suitable duties plan.
We provide expert independent medical opinions in the form of Medico-legal assessments and reports. These may relate to Medical Negligence claims, CTP insurance claims or TPD insurance claims, and are structured like an Independent Medical Examination (IME) report.
Our Occupational Physicians are experts in addressing the unique requirements of an IME report, providing these to Workers’ Compensation insurers, legal companies, insurers and other relevant parties. One such type of an IME report is a Rehabilitation Assessment.
We offer state-specific Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP) IMEs, with our commitment to quality review ensuring that all Permanent Impairment calculations are accurate and defendable.
When conducting a File Review, a medical specialist is provided with relevant medical reports and information which is used to deliver a report without physically examining the patient. These are often conducted when a patient is unable or unwilling to attend the appointment, and is a cost-effective alternative when you need specific answers to issues such as the analysis of medical/healthcare conclusions, evaluation of medical versus non-medical data or evaluation of medical reports and patient records of patients unable to travel or who are deceased.
