According to the Ministry of Labour – Prevention Council, musculoskeletal disorders and stress for employees account for the majority of work-related lost-time claims. This cost workplaces hundreds of millions of dollars from absenteeism and lost productivity. An employee’s family physician alone is not a reliable source of providing employers with an objective diagnosis of his/her patient’s health or an accurate prognosis for recovery.
An Independent Medical Evaluation is an objective, physical or mental health assessment conducted by a physician or allied professional. The purpose of the assessment is to determine the nature and extent of an injury. The findings of the examination are documented in a formal written report that addresses specific questions associated with the diagnosis and treatment.
Winsor Health’s administrative staff will also make arrangements for your employee or claimant’s transportation and interpretation services as required. Our mandate is to complete each assessment with the highest level of convenience and professionalism.
