EFA-STM Program: A Comprehensive Bookend Solution
Workers' compensation law holds employers liable for bringing an injured employee back to pre-injury condition. Emerge’s EFA-STM Program provides a comprehensive and objective bookend solution to ensure employers are protected against claims of discrimination as well as disability, while complying with all ADAAA and EEOC regulations.
Our EFA-STM Program measures current and new employees before and after workplace incidents to help you determine if a reported injury arises out of the course and scope of employment (AOECOE). By comparing pre- and post-injury data, the EFA-STM Program is a recommended best practice to provide better care for work related incidents .
Emerge’s EFA Test Is Proven in Court and Has Changed Case Law
The EFA Test objectively diagnoses and precisely identifies the location, extent, nature and age of soft tissue injuries, providing information that MRIs, X-rays, and CT scans cannot. Our EFA test has successfully passed several legal challenges, including acceptance in Federal court under the Daubert standards for admissibility in court.
“This newly discovered evidence [the EFA Test] is unique and directly relevant to the crucial issue of causation. It is substantially probably that this medical report, created almost a year before the litigation was filed, would have caused the jury to evaluate all of the evidence at trial differently. The outcome at trial could well have been different if this evidence had been available.”
Jack B. Weinstein, Senior Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York
His Honor overturned a $5.3 million product liability verdict based on the EFA Test.
The EFA-STM Program Substantially Reduces Costs and Improves Outcomes
The EFA-STM Program can positively impact your current direct and indirect costs, as well as potential future costs created by CMS Mandatory Reporting. The objective information provided by our EFA Test to physicians prevents costly misdiagnoses, unnecessary or inappropriate surgeries and treatments, prolonged recovery periods, and fraudulent claims.
