Baseline information collected in a Post Offer Functional Employment Test can be referenced to determine an employee’s medical/physical status when he/she was first hired. Employers use this baseline data to help inform rehabilitation strategies and goal-setting, as well as return-to-work decisions. In some cases, baseline information collected during the Post Offer Functional Employment test can be used in apportionment when establishing permanent disability ratings.
WorkSTEPS Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE) may be used alone to document existing impairments or may be used in combination with the Post-Offer Comprehensive test as a comparison against original, baseline data. One FCE should be given at the time of injury to determine severity and legitimacy for optimum injury management. Another FCE should be administered during rehabilitation to determine progress. A final FCE should be conducted post-rehabilitation to determine the employee’s ability to return to his or her job.
At the time of injury, when compared against data previously collected, the FCE may be used to prove consistency and validity of performance and create realistic, objective rehabilitation goals, return to work recommendations, or work conditioning programs. This information is valuable in objectively moving the patient through the system in a fair and timely manner.
