FastTrack RTW Services & Solutions Introduces New Service Designed to Improve Employability Assessments During Disability Evaluation Process
The Employability Assessment Verification (EAV) service utilizes innovative automation technology to enhance and standardize the quality of TSA/LMS results while reducing cost and processing time.
BEDMINSTER, N.J., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FastTrack RTW Services & Solutions, a division of Kamine Technology Group, LLC, announced a new service today termed Employability Assessment Verification (EAV). EAV is aimed at Disability, Life and Workers Compensation Insurers, their service providers as well as Self-Insured Self-Administered Employers. The service is already in use at several insurers nationwide.
The EAV service combines the convenience of a Transferable Skill Analysis (TSA) and Labor Market Survey (LMS) into one document. The process begins with the collection of a claimant's Restrictions & Limitations (R&L's) data gathered from the medical provider and/or internal medical reviews. This data is then automatically compared against the policy's contractual language and FastTrack's proprietary Occupational Library, which contains job requirements for all occupational classifications, as defined by the Department of Labor, to determine which occupations, if any, the claimant can perform given their current R&L's. Pre-determined filters are applied to screen for 100% occupational matching against the claimant's gainful wage parameter(s), individual training, education and experience (TE&E), and occupations existing within the claimant's specific local labor market. The result of this automated process allows FastTrack's (or the Insurer's/Employer's) Vocational Rehabilitation Specialists to benefit from examination of as wide an array of occupations as possible before finalizing the report, with their own professional expertise, to derive the best occupational matches for the claimant.
EAV's automated matching process promotes higher quality results and increased productivity, as the Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist is freed from significant expenditures of time researching occupations within the O*Net and DOT databases. EAV also standardizes the TSA/LMA process, cuts overall process time and is highly price competitive with traditional methods.
