FastTrack Technology Helps Enhance Return to Work Programs and Improves Outcomes for Injured Workers
BEDMINSTER, NJ – Aug. 2, 2011 — Madison National Life Insurance Company, Inc., headquartered in Madison, WI, today announced it will implement FastTrack Return-to-Work Solutions to optimize its Return-to-Work programs from both the employer and claimant perspectives and improve its claim triage through internal operational efficiencies. Available through GettingHired, LLC, FastTrack assists insurance companies in the short/long-term disability and workers’ compensation sectors.
FastTrack Return-to-Work Solutions is the first commercially available technology to automate the entire Return-to-Work life cycle. FastTrack’s Transitional Service Tools Module automates the capture of the Job Analysis and Physical Capabilities Form for an injured worker and provides an online comparison identifying any variations in abilities and makes recommendations regarding job accommodations, temporary work assignments and need for additional medical management or occupational change. FastTrack’s Career Service Tools Module provides claimants, who need to find alternative employment, with a robust means of making connections, building their career-related toolkit and finding a job. The net effect allows companies to more quickly identify and assist injured workers that need temporary work assignments or intensive vocational counseling and job transition services, resulting in shorter claim duration.
“We believe that FastTrack will allow us to present a compelling value proposition to new and existing employer customers where we can exceed their expectations from a Return-to-Work perspective, resulting in new business and higher levels of customer satisfaction for Madison National,” said Robert Stubbe, Madison National Life’s Executive Vice President. “We also look forward to realizing the inherent operational productivity improvements that this technology provides.”
Thomas Capato, GettingHired’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very excited to add Madison National Life to FastTrack Return-to-Work Solution’s growing customer base. This is a great opportunity to achieve excellent outcomes for Madison National Life, its employer customers and their injured workers/claimants. FastTrack offers a unique set of tools to benefit each of these constituencies which positions our customers to more effectively grow their business.”
