FORT WORTH, Texas - CorVel Corporation (NASDAQ:CRVL), a provider of comprehensive risk management solutions, has expanded its vocational evaluation services to address the increased demand in the workers' compensation sector. The company has established a 'center of excellence' to deliver these services both virtually and in-person throughout the United States.

Karen Thomas, Vice President of Clinical Services at CorVel, emphasized the importance of detailed vocational evaluation in helping companies retain valuable employees by ensuring injured workers return to suitable job roles safely and productively. CorVel has increased its resources to assist clients in overcoming the challenges associated with workplace injuries.

The vocational evaluation services provided by CorVel include a variety of assessments and research tools. These are designed to identify employment barriers, propose inventive solutions, and expedite the return to work for injured employees. Services range from ergonomic evaluations and vocational testing to onsite job analysis and assessments of employment potential. They also offer specialized services for complex claims that may be at a standstill, require direction, or are in the process of denial or litigation.

Lea K. Gallop, Case Management Manager at CorVel, noted that the nature of vocational evaluation services has evolved due to the pandemic. With changes in job roles and workplace configurations, as well as an increase in remote work, there is a greater need for careful evaluation, planning, and execution to successfully reintegrate employees into their workplaces.

CorVel's team comprises vocational experts, evaluators, vocational counselors, and occupational therapists, all holding national credentials as certified rehabilitation counselors (CRC) or certified disability management specialists (CDMS). The team's expertise spans all state jurisdictions.

This initiative is part of CorVel's ongoing efforts to integrate technology, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, into its services to enhance care management and control related healthcare costs. The company works with employers, third-party administrators, insurance companies, and government agencies, offering a suite of solutions that combine technology with personalized service.
