WESTMINSTER, Colo., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Navy has awarded Reed Group a contract to provide 2,000 end-user licenses for MDA Internet and 300 end-user licenses for MDA for Windows. Based on The Medical Disability Advisor: Workplace Guidelines for Disability Duration, Fifth Edition by Presley Reed, MD, MDA Internet and MDA for Windows will provide return-to-work guidelines for both military and civilian employees of the U.S. Navy.
The MDA guidelines provide evidence-based, objective expectancy figures for normal recovery from medical conditions, injuries and procedures in its renowned duration tables. Only the MDA guidelines are based on observed normative case data from more than five million case records. The Fifth Edition provides information on more than 10,000 medical codes representing the most common injuries and illnesses of working people.
Use of The Medical Disability Advisor does not replace the need for consulting medical opinion and treatment by a physician for every case, but can assist in establishing a framework for dialogue among all involved parties (employee, employer, provider, payer, etc.) to help ensure consistent and fair treatment for all injured and ill workers.
The Medical Disability Advisor is the world's most widely used information resource for disability duration information. By providing proprietary evidence-based disability duration data, along with comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation information developed by Reed Group's Medical Advisory Board, users are assured of the most current and complete fact-based information for healthy and timely return-to-work outcomes.
