Summary or Abstract : Managed care initiatives are becoming increasingly popular as cost control strategies for managing work-related injuries in the workers' compensation system. A comprehensive "managed" occupational health program was implemented at a large hospital in an effort to reduce workers' compensation costs. The present study compared a "managed care" treatment approach to "traditional care" for workplace injuries and illnesses among healthcare workers. Significant differences in claim costs, lost-time frequency, and total lost-time days were observed. The "managed" occupational health treatment approach substantially reduced medical and indemnity costs of workplace injuries and illnesses. The average claim cost for the "traditional care" group was $4,580 compared to $664 for the "managed care" group. The "traditional care" group was 15 times more likely to result in a lost-time injury claim and averaged 4.13 days per lost-time claim compared to the "managed" care group with 1.21 days. Additionally, claim costs and lost-time frequency comparisons were made to other hospitals within the state as well as national affiliates. The hospital utilizing the "managed care" model demonstrated substantial savings in overall claim costs and fewer incidences of lost-time injuries. A patient satisfaction survey was also mailed to participants in the managed care group. Results of the patient satisfaction survey found that participants were generally satisfied with the quality of care. It was concluded that significant cost savings are achievable without compromising patient satisfaction when a "managed" occupational health program is implemented in the workers' compensation system for healthcare workers.
