BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Paradigm extends cat care for injured workers to COVID patients


Paradigm Management Services LLC has expanded its care management processes used for managing catastrophic injuries to assist workers requiring medical care to recover from COVID-19, the Walnut Creek, California-based case management services provider said in a statement Thursday.

"The rapid spread of COVID-19 presents the workers' compensation industry with a complex set of risk decisions and challenges that require clinical management resources that Paradigm has developed and evolved over the past 30 years of managing catastrophic injuries," said Kevin Turner, CEO of Paradigm Catastrophic Care Management.

Through its systematic care management process, the company said it can establish a treatment plan with specific clinical and time-based outcomes for individuals with a COVID-19 diagnosis to reduce the duration of functional disability associated with COVID-19 complications, acute respiratory distress syndrome, post-intensive care syndrome and associated post-traumatic stress disorder.
