Early diagnosis and treatment of industrial injuries and illnesses are critical to returning a worker to their job as soon as possible. At SportsMED, we strive to reduce both medical costs and time away from work, all while providing excellent medical care to the injured worker. We control costs by taking a conservative approach when evaluating the need for ancillary services and testing procedures.
