California Changes Guideline on Workplace Injury Treatments Effective December 1st

Written by on 12/4/2017 1:18 AM in , . It has 1 Comments.

As the healthcare industry makes changes and modifications regarding standards of injury treatment, state regulatory agencies work to keep pace with current developments. One such update took place with California's Department of Industrial Relations on December 1.

Updating Workplace Injury Treatment Guidelines

The California DIR's Division of Workers' Compensation publishes a Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule, also known as MTUS, which mandates workplace injury treatment guidelines. MTUS covers specific injuries as well as chronic pain and post-surgery therapies.

Changes to be incorporated affect 16 sections of MTUS. Topics include injuries to the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist and knees along with stress and lung diseases, chronic pain, and opioid treatment.

These modifications are based on current standards from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. ACOEM is a society composed of more than 4,500 physicians and healthcare specialists with a mission to "promote optimal health and safety of workers, workplaces and environments."

Maintaining "Evidence-Based Standards of Care"

George Parisotto, administrative director of the Division of Workers' Compensation, officially signed off on the changes November 1. In a notice issued to announce the modifications, the division stated that they were implemented to conform with "current evidence-based standards of care."

According to the notice, MTUS has seen few changes since it was created in 2007, despite numerous medical and scientific developments during the succeeding years. It also noted the need for MTUS to keep pace with the "evolving nature of scientific evidence."
