Importance of Medical Assessment in Occupational Safety and Health

Medical Assessments are done in the workplace to evaluate the medical and physical fitness of the employees. Such assessments are done to assess the experience of an individual for a particular job role, for example, professions that are exhausting and demand more strength, flexibility, dexterity or other physical characteristics.

A look at the facts surrounding some disasters:

  • In March 2015 GermaWings plane crash event has caused 264 deaths due to pilot’s mental ill health.
  • In April 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig had an explosion killing 11 workers and injuring 16 others.

Real world challenges in Medical Assessment

It is very important for the regulatory authorities to get the medical assessments done in an organized and monitored framework if not may lead to disasters.

The common challenges faced here are:

  • Lack of consistency in adherence to regulations when processing and managing health information (such as medical assessments and history).
  • Non-availability of complete information and details for the responsible medical practitioner to make accurate decisions.
  • Lack of real-time information on assessment status and progress.

Solution Framework

The Solution Framework embraces ‘open system’ philosophy. This simply means the solution can be integrated with any system integrators/centralized EMRs by applying latest technology innovations.

  • Configurable Workflow:—Customized process flows for different users.
  • Online Application Submission:—Paperless and highly accurate data capturing.
  • Reports and Dashboard:— Assists regulatory bodies and policymakers for process optimization.
  • Highly Secure:—2F authentication protecting the sensitive healthcare data.

Business Benefits

The solution is simple to identify—move out of the paper-based environment into digital, with a secure electronic medical record (EMR) purpose-built for use in sectors driven by regulations.

  • Automates and enforces consistency in health information and medical history management.
  • More efficient processes and more productive clinicians/physicians and even administrators.
  • Faster turnaround times on medical evaluations, assessments, and approvals.
  • Fewer errors and detailed information of health records to view and track application.
