FastTrack Technology Helps Enhance Return to Work Programs and Improve Outcomes for Injured Workers

BEDMINSTER, NJ – Assurant Employee Benefits today announced it will implement FastTrack Return-to-Work Solutions to improve its claim triage and Return-to-Work programs. Available through GettingHired, LLC, FastTrack assists insurance companies in the short-term disability, long-term disability and workers compensation sectors.

FastTrack is designed with a robust set of Section 508 compliant features to provide motivational support and career services tools for the claimant. Additionally, FastTrack’s proprietary RightMatch™ technology is used to match a claimant’s experience, education and abilities to a large database of open jobs while a specialized tracking module provides caseworkers with the ability to manage, monitor and encourage/coach the claimant.

“At a time when our customers’ employees feel the most vulnerable, we feel it is important to provide them with the best customer service possible,” said Thomas Vargo, Assurant Employee Benefits’ Vice President – Disability and Life Claims Support. “Implementing this technology will allow us to improve the effectiveness of our return to work program and help those contending with a disability or illness rejoin the workforce faster.” As an example, Vargo noted, that FastTrack’s Career Services Tools Module provides a substantial number of features to help people with new limitations return to productive lives more quickly and successfully.

Sean Rutherford, GettingHired’s Vice President for Return-to-Work Products stated, “We are very excited to be able to provide FastTrack to Assurant Employee Benefits, one of the largest marketers of employee benefits in the United States.
