ODG, an MCG Health company, provides unbiased, evidence-based guidelines that unite insurers, administrators and employers in the effort to confidently and effectively return employees to health.
ODG by MCG is comprised of evidence-based and data-driven treatment guidelines, return-to-work guidelines as well as cost modelling. The guidelines and analytics are designed to make it easier for case managers, claims assessors, the HR Community and healthcare providers to tackle the industry’s most important challenges including timely return-to-work, medical management, reserving, risk assessment, and interventional triage. Additional features include the RTW Prescription, which allows for sharing of evidence-based care plans, and a metric called the TAO Index (Treatment Analyser on Outcomes) that measures the correlation of each medical intervention with timely return-to-work, as well as the ODG Job Profiler, a solution which helps insurers, third-party administrators, and employers identify and mitigate the risk of injury by creating a customised Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) for each job function, adjusting disability duration guidelines according to job demands.
HCB is the UK distributor for ODG, and if you would like to find out more and/or purchase the ODG solution, please get in contact with us. The guidelines form one of HCB’s pillars of success in our standard case management activity, and have been helpful in setting and managing return-to-work expectations. We would be happy to share our best practices for using ODG.
