Prepping to Hit the Ground Running!


Prepping to Hit the Ground Running!

This coming week is a busy one for us as we’ll be traveling the country to spread the word about the revolutionary technology that is helping injured workers and payers alike. I’ll be in San Antonio for RIMS, while Dr. MaryRose Reaston will be presenting at the Wisconsin Safety & Health Conference & Expo.

It’s as exciting to speak with people who are unfamiliar with us as those who are already benefitting from the latest diagnostic tool. Wherever we are the message is the same: Electrodiagnostic Functional Assessment offers the opportunity to provide injured workers with the best care anywhere.

Mary will be among a distinguished group of thought leaders presenting the session: Eliminating Injuries, Workers’ Comp Costs, and Opioid Dependence in the Workplace. The session focuses on the latest trends in preventing work-related injuries, determining causation of an injury, proven solutions to reduce medical costs pre- and post-injury, and addressing the opioid epidemic through preventive methods.

This session is a great fit for us as Emerge Diagnostics’ solutions speak directly to every one of these issues. The EFA technology, cleared by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, provides a precise, objective diagnosis of soft tissue injuries — one of the biggest cost drivers in the workers’ compensation system. This allows the injured worker to get the specific medical treatment needed, rather than undergoing a trial-and-error approach, including the unnecessary use of opioids. In addition to correctly identifying the source of an injured worker’s pain, the technology is also instrumental in determining whether an injury is work-related or not. 

Joining Mary on the panel are two physicians and an ergonomics expert:

  • Jim Mecham, OTR/L, MSIE, CPE, COO, OccuCare
  • Dr. Raj Khanna, MD, Medical Director, CompCorePro
  • Dr. Benjamin Feinzimer, OD, Medical Director, Occucare

Attorney Dean Kelley of Ogletree Deakins will moderate the session. It takes place Wednesday, April 18 from 1:30 – 3 P.M., at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells.


While Mary is speaking in Wisconsin, I’ll be in San Antonio, Texas, making the rounds at one of the country’s largest gatherings for risk managers. I’ll be meeting with clients and friends along with representatives of a number of organizations that have heard about and become very interested in the EFA technology — and our results.

Explaining the simplicity of the technology typically creates an ‘aha’ moment for people. I tell them that just as an EKG assesses the heart muscle — at rest, with usage, and return to rest, the EFA provides similar information on the musculoskeletal system. The results are immediate and correct.

The technology could not come at a better time, with the increasing trend of mis-or undiagnosed soft tissue injuries and an aging workforce. I look forward to discussing the capabilities and exciting future possibilities of EFA. Please let me know if you will be there and I will be glad to meet with you.

Hope to see you at RIMS!
