At Resurgens Orthopaedics, we provide prompt, high quality medical care to the injured employee and give the employer the information they need to return employees to work quickly and safely. To meet this need, Resurgens Orthopaedics acted by forming an advisory committee consisting of employers, insurance adjusters, case managers and physicians to let us know what information they need when one of their employees becomes injured. Resurgens Orthopaedics responded to their input by developing our WorkLink program.
WorkLink is a comprehensive workers' compensation medical care program that focuses on three elements: timely access, communication and consistency.
Access / Treatment
Of the more than 40,000 workers' compensation injuries in the state of Georgia each year, 40 percent are musculoskeletal in nature. Resurgens physicians will see an injured employee within 24-72 hours after an injury. All Resurgens physicians offer same day appointments in their schedule to provide medical care for the acutely injured employee. Combined with 19 office locations throughout the metro Atlanta area, our network of physicians delivers efficient and effective treatment for all musculoskeletal injuries.
Resurgens Rehabilitation Services offers on-site physical therapy at select locations.
When an employee is injured, the employer needs information fast. Resurgens physicians will complete a detailed WorkLink Physician Report form and will fax the information to the employer, insurance adjuster and case manager each time an injured employee is seen by a Resurgens physician. If an employee is unable to return to normal duties, the WorkLink Physician Report will outline the return-to-work restrictions so an employee can perform modified work while the injury heals.
You can expect to receive the same timely information after each patient's visit regardless of the Resurgens office location where the injured employee is seen. Resurgens Orthopaedics offers dedicated WorkLink contacts in each office location to help answer questions along with a dedicated team of Workers' Compensation Managers whom are responsible for maintaining individual customer relationships. We offer on-line WorkLink Employer Profiles detailing specific return-to-work policies, communication information and individual standards for each employer.
The physicians at Resurgens Orthopaedics are available to meet with employers and tour workplaces to learn more about the type of jobs performed. This enables the physician to better direct an employee's post-injury care.
All of our physicians are committed to delivering the highest level of quality care to every patient at every visit. You can expect each Resurgens Orthopaedics physician and medical team member to meet your high standards for medical excellence.
