One Call announces the debut of Pain Pathway, a unique injury-focused approach to pain management designed to help lead to better patient outcomes.
Pain Pathway is the third offering within Jacksonville, Fla-based One Call’s CarePaths platform, which was established to holistically view a patient and coordinate individualized care based on the injury with qualified independent providers.
According to One Call in a media release, Pain Pathway is designed to interrupt the pain cycle by incorporating a functional restoration program (FRP), performed by a qualified inpatient Center of Excellence, into the patient treatment plan.
FRPs are inter-disciplinary programs that assist injured workers in the reduction and self-management of chronic pain, explains One Call, a provider of specialized healthcare solutions for the workers’ compensation industry.
Customized for each individual and overseen by a physician, FRPs often include gradually detoxing an injured worker from opioid consumption and improving overall well-being.
“Chronic pain is a battle many injured workers face,” says Will Smith, chief product officer at One Call.
“We want those who feel helpless to know they have options. Our Pain Pathway solution is a multi-pronged approach that includes coordinating various types of therapies, technology, education, and counseling in conjunction with narcotic reduction. Our ultimate goal is always the same – coordinate the care necessary to restore an injured worker’s quality of life and get them back to work.”
One Call refers patients for FRPs to one of three independent inpatient Centers for Excellence within the US – located in Dallas, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Jacksonville, Fla. Patients can expect to complete the program within 4 to 6 weeks, with 6 to 8 hours of daily participation, depending on diagnosis.
CarePaths also includes two other offerings – Wound Pathway and Amputation Pathway – that provide individualized, injury-specific care for injured workers, per the release.
