Strategy for Success

England & Associates recognizes that Vocational Rehabilitation Services and Forensic Evaluation require a Medical Evaluation component. Medical Case Management Services are provided by the Nurse Case Manager, including Medical Records Review, coordination of FCEs and Medical Care Coordination with direct physician contact. Representative Job Descriptions are frequently used to confirm Work Tolerances, obtain Work Releases and insure Placement Plan Objectives are suitable and medically approved. Certain unique case work scenarios may involve concurrent services provided by the Nurse Case Manager and Vocational Case Manager to expedite achievement of desired case outcomes. Vocational Case Management will access clinical Medical Case Management Services when required for successful Rehabilitation. Medical Services will in turn access Vocational Services to initiate return to work (RTW) objectives. We see this interaction between Medical and Vocational Case Managers as an opportunity for 'positive synergy’ that has always expedited case work and insured the most successful Rehabilitation results.

Vocational Evaluation Services include use of computerized Transferable Skills Analysis, Preliminary Labor Market Survey (LMS) Research and review of Medical Records in conjunction with a ‘comprehensive’ Initial Vocational Interview. The Vocational Evaluation may require testing to further evaluate employability, develop placement objectives and determine qualification for on-the-job-training (OJT) or structured vocational training programs. The completion of a thorough Vocational Evaluation has been found ‘essential’ to development of forensic Evaluations. The comprehensive evaluation will insure that subsequent Vocational and Medical Case Management Services are focused, effective and successful.

Labor Market Survey (LMS) Research has been developed as a tool for case documentation, occupational analysis, Placement Goal qualification and development of Placement Resources. Labor Market data obtained from ‘real employers’ about ‘current Job Openings’ provides local documentation that will be case specific. Personal Injury, Dissolution and Workers Compensation case work benefit from LMS Research that will support Expert Testimony. LMS Research results virtually always provide Employment Opportunity for Clients available for Job Search and return to work (RTW). LMS Research provides employer contact data and advance information on Job Openings to prepare Clients for Job Applications and Interviews. Current wage and salary data will be developed from public resources and data banks to provide LMS Research guidelines or projections. We have found our LMS Research of local employers and direct employer contacts provide more detailed Client specific documentation and opportunity.
