Absence Management

Problem:

GSG Associates, Inc. offers solutions by reducing the duration of absences and controlling associated skyrocketing costs thus delivering significant savings to our clients.
  • Employee absences cost their employers in both direct and indirect costs. Whether it's a sick call, short or long term disability, FMLA (family-related leave), federal or state mandated leaves, company medical leaves, or workers' compensation lost-time, these absences can become complex and conflicting. Many of these leaves require physician visits and notices for compliance, and that is where GSG can help our clients.
Solution:

At the outset, GSG develops baseline data on current costs. We utilize our state of the art internet based software to trend and track all absences, along with medically managing the absences. Our software is HIPAA compliant, as is our process of management. Physician advisors support our nurse consultants when appropriate and/ or per state regulation. Our nurses work within best practice guidelines and assure progress for the employee with appropriate return to work options.
  • Our program goals include reduction of client's operating costs through reduction of unscheduled absences and the associated cost, both direct and indirect by management of our GSG nurses.
  • This goal can be realized by shortening the duration of disability absences and facilitating the return to work of employees with occupational or non-occupational medical or disability problems. Also in trending and tracking negative trends and taking a pro-active role in reducing/preventing injuries and illness.
Impact:

Real-time accurate information, communication among all parties including providers of care, and early intervention by GSG's nurses creates successful management of lost-time and absence. On line data access for our clients and meaningful reports such as identifying areas for prevention and safety, incidences of absence correlated to specific areas at the client site, disability durations and GSG's impact on the durations, lag time in reporting and others, provide our clients with key information for their successful cost containment.
