Helping Patients, Providers, and Payers
MDGuidelines addresses healthcare’s Quadruple Aim by enhancing the patient experience, improving outcomes, lowering costs, and improving the work life of healthcare providers and care teams.
Unmatched Focus on Quality
High-quality data and literature drives everything we do, from predictive modeling and making medical recommendations, to updating our duration estimates and generating treatment cost calculations. MDGuidelines includes evidence-based guidelines from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM).
Disability & Return-to-Activity
MDGuidelines was founded over 40 years ago by Dr. Presley Reed. Helping people return to health after illness or injury is at the heart of our work. Return-to-activity information benefits managers, nurse case managers, and claims professionals who use MDGuidelines to better understand condition and procedure information and recovery estimates.
MDGuidelines’ evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and return-to-activity information and durations, along with a drug formulary, help healthcare providers, case managers, claims professionals, carriers, and regulators manage workers’ compensation cases more effectively.
