Experts from the School of Public Health at the University of Colorado School of Health Sciences reviewed three years of data assessing the effectiveness of a biopsychosocial model to determine if there is a significant difference in recovery time between the different psychosocial classifications. Analyses were performed separately on six different injuries. Every injury type showed significantly longer recovery times in patient groups that were “distressed” compared to “not distressed.” Significantly longer recovery times in distressed subjects show the need for new treatment plants, mental therapy referrals, and overall, more guidance on working with emotionally distressed patients.
• Go beyond buzzwords and understand the importance of a biopsychosocial model to medical management and delivering quality care to injured workers
• Medicare has moved into a value-based model, soon all aspects of health care will be required to show value. Be able to define what a value-based care model is and why a biopsychosocial model is critical to effectively achieving maximum medical improvement
• Demonstrate how outcomes data supports a biopsychosocial model
