By | Blog, News, Publications | No Comments

“Nurses often encounter situations that require lifting patients, often using awkward body positions. Hiring nurses with strength suitable for these jobs decreases nurses’ risk for illness and injury and would be expected to result in more appropriate and lower health care, pharmacy, and disability costs.”  To read more from the published article written by Paul Terpeluk, DO, MPH, Bruce Rogen, MD, MPH, and Thomas Gilliam, PhD, please click on the following link.

The data shows a significant difference in the average cost per claim when comparing those who took the IPCS PCE compared to those who did not. The average claim cost was about 3 times greater for those who did not take the IPCS PCE. When comparing the Total Cost for Medical Claims and Reserves the IPCS group accounted for 24% of the injuries but only 10% of the cost.

Clothing Industry-Injury Analysis

By | Case Studies, Distribution | No Comments

The analysis of the injury data clearly demonstrates that the IPCS physical capability evaluation program had a dramatic impact on reducing both the frequency and severity of injury as measured by incident rate, total cost of injuries and average cost per injury in comparison to the Not Tested Group for all injuries and exertion injuries. The combination of reducing the frequency of injury and reducing the average cost per injury resulted in greater savings and return-on-investment for the company with the IPCS program. If the IPCS program had been in place during the 24-month period for the Not Tested Group, the net savings minus the cost of the program would have been $513,548.

The analysis of the injury data clearly demonstrates that the IPCS physical capability evaluation program had a dramatic impact on reducing both the frequency and severity of injury as measured by incident rate, total cost of injuries and average cost per injury in comparison to the Not Tested Group for all injuries and exertion injuries. The combination of reducing the frequency of injury and reducing the average cost per injury resulted in greater savings and return-on-investment for the company with the IPCS program. If the IPCS program had been in place during the 16-month period for the Not Tested Group, the net savings minus the cost of the program would have been $512,973 or a 62% reduction in the actual incurred costs.

Gas Cylinder Distribution Company

The following case study was completed over a 23-month period on a pilot basis for a national gas cylinder distribution company. The case study focused on 5 locations that collectively employed about 200 individuals. The study shows that a company does not need to be a Fortune 1000 to reap the benefits of the IPCS technology. Smaller companies can realize the same return-on-investment by reducing the frequency and severity of injuries through the IPCS program. (Fall, 2005)
