Rehabilitation management system - Integrated and effective system

Why is this important?

An effective rehabilitation management system requires integration into broader workplace management systems. Aligning health, injury prevention and management with corporate risk management enables rehabilitation to be given due priority in management decision making and resource allocation.

Better performing organisations have integrated systems to monitor corporate health indications and respond to warning signs of injury or illness and to identify employees who may be vulnerable. A number of different sources of organisation health data and information can be used such as information gained through recruitment and selection, results of health checks and medicals, productivity and performance information; absence data and staff satisfaction.

To be effective, an organisation needs to commit adequate resources to provide for effective rehabilitation and ensure that there are clear rehabilitation procedures. Part of these procedures must include a commitment to offering suitable duties.
