"This project would not have been possible without the services of Traekos. Dr. Matos provided content knowledge expertise to facilitate an academic-Department of Defense information exchange. He provided real-world insight on how Tricare beneficiaries interact with the health care system that resulted in the clinically coded data received and analyzed as part of the project."
Independent Medical Examinations / Medical Reviews / Utilization Review
Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs) are evaluations performed by a physician not involved in the care of the patient, these evaluations provide an unbiased medical opinion for clarifying clinical diagnosis and treatment issues. IMEs are an important component of workers' compensation systems and are also used to clarify disability or liability associated cases. IMEs often include impairment evaluations; these evaluations are often used to provide an objective understanding of the impact of an injury or illness.
Medical Reviews and Utilization Reviews utilize a physician reviewer not involved in the care of the patient to review a request for medical treatment. The purpose of the review is to compare requests for medical services to evidence based treatment guidelines that are deemed appropriate for such services and includes a recommendation based on that comparison. The goal of these reviews is to minimize costs and determine if the recommended treatment is appropriate.
Tactical Fitness and Wellness
The Tactical Fitness and Wellness program was developed with the unique physical and environmental challenges of firefighters and law enforcement professionals in mind. These careers present a variety of unique physical challenges and environmental exposures which can cause serious — sometimes career-ending — physical as well as mental injury and illness. The goal of this health and wellness program is to evaluate and help prevent injuries and exposure related health concerns. Dr. Matos's experience with the International Association of Firefighters as well as his extensive experience with preventing, diagnosing and treating chemical, biological and environmental exposures during his time in the military allowed us to develop a cost-effective and comprehensive examination that helps monitor for the potential changes and disease processes that can occur due to these occupational exposures. We believe in a comprehensive approach to personal health and wellbeing which considers the spectrum of risk factors across varying levels: individual, relationship, community, genetic and societal, all of which can impact the long-term health of emergency responders. The most effective approach to an individual’s health should address each of these areas. Our process is holistic in its handling of the employee’s situations (e.g., addressing medical, physical, emotional, financial, psychosocial, behavioral, and other needs), as well as that of their support systems. The goal of this process is first and foremost focused on assessing the employee’s needs and assisting them in the development of their personal health and wellness care plan. Often when it comes to personal health and mental health conditions, employees are hesitant to open up and share information about their mental health and physical health for fear of losing their jobs. Our team has experience with entering situations where there is low trust and high anxiety dynamics between employers and employees. We have placed an importance on relationship building and transparency with the first responder in these situations, which has been a key to the success of our Police and Fire Tactical Programs. We also acknowledge that the first responder and their family/support and the employer are all our customers. We place great importance on the overall satisfaction of the stakeholders with the care and services they receive from our entire care team. Our program has been endorsed by the International Association of Fire Fighters and local Police unions. Our partners include the Harvard School of Public Health and Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program that has a grant to study firefighter health.
Below is a list of resources we utilize for mental health, sleep quality, diet and physical health.
