Research reveals that injury, pain and trauma incidents benefit tremendously from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy intervention. Connect your workers’ compensation cases to a network of over 1,500 psychologists and psychiatrists nationwide with program services that are proven to improve recovery.


The correlation between psychosocial attitudes and injury are well-documented. Quickly predict (with 95% accuracy) which cases are at high-risk for delayed recovery and break the Injury-to-Chronic Pain Cycle with the Early Intervention Pain Questionnaire (EIPQ) and FLAG-DR™ scoring algorithm.


Our case study resulted in national employers achieving 50% cost savings in total claim costs due to early identification and intervention with injured workers at risk for delayed recovery. Improve worker quality of life; restore function; settle claims; and maximize your return-to-work results.
