offering industry leading turn-around times on quality assured independent assessment services.

Independent Medical Assessments (IME)

IMEs are third party health exams for injured or ill employees or plan members.  The reports the employer/insurer get as a result of an IME are an invaluable tool to help benefit managers, case managers and employers make informed decisions about short/long term disability management and help them optimize return to work strategies.  

 

Functional Ability Evaluations (FAE) / Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)

These assessments measure a person’s physical capacity and/or limitations to perform various physical tasks and duties.  A functional abilities evaluation can measure a person’s abilities against the demands of their own job, or a more general set of demands as needed in any job

We have many facilities available for one, two and even three day testing programs with highly qualified Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists.

Physical Demands Analysis (PDA)

A PDA is generally conducted to assess whether or not someone can return to their former duties following an illness or accident.  Testing is conducted based on a job description provided by the employer and used by an Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist, who can measure abilities and limits based on job requirements. Another use of a PDA is to assess whether a potential employee can perform the required physical demands during the job screening process.

Workplace Assessments and Solutions

CompreMed provides both ergonomic and psycho-vocational assessments in the workplace to improve a person’s working experience.  In this type of assessment, the assessor is able to make a detailed analysis of the demands of an individual’s particular job and can identify any safety, health or other occupational hazards.  A workplace assessment tests both the ergonomic and physical influences on a person’s ability to do their job safely and effectively.  Recommendations can be made to modify working environment or on the job itself to reduce any risk of injury or work related stress.
