Understanding the Nuances of Occupational Medicine Can Help Your Providers Perform Better and Grow Your Occupational Medicine Practice

If you’re ready to expand your urgent care practice, use the new OccDocOne platform to give your providers easy access to occupational medicine treatment guidelines.

Our QuickCheck tool has over 270 guidelines and 400 videos available at their fingertips for reference while seeing patients.

Employers have certain expectations for how they want their workers to be treated when an injury arises. These nuances and practices are not taught during medical or nurse practitioner training or in PA school, instead these are usually skills that need to be developed and learned over time. This is where OccDocOne can help.

There are many nuances to treating work-related injuries that most providers may not be aware of.   OccDocOne highlights each and every nuance in our visit by visit guidelines. Your providers can “stay out of trouble” while providing great care for their patients. Far too many good occ med clients have been lost because of a medical provider’s lack in understanding of the nuances of occupational medicine.
