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”.
CEO of complex care solutions
Paradigm Management Services LLC
Walnut Creek, California
Right out of high school, Marijo Storment’s mission in life was clear — she would find a career that would serve and help others. Working in the insurance business back then was not top-of-mind.
“I went to nursing school, and I ended up working in the intensive care unit,” she said. “Case management was not wellknown back then.”
Ms. Storment began her career in the workers compensation industry as the first employee of regional case management provider The Alaris Group Inc. in Bloomington, Minnesota, initially founded by five women, and was integral to every aspect of the organization’s growth and development.
“By helping to start our company, The Alaris Group, I found a way to marry my nursing degree with insurance,” Ms. Storment said.
Now she oversees Paradigm Complex Care — a part of the Paradigm Management Services LLC family — and led Alaris’ national expansion and acquisition by Paradigm Outcomes in October 2016.
As CEO of the division, Ms. Storment oversees a nationwide team of experienced case managers, pain specialists and physician advisers who serve injured workers and their families.
“We are an advocate for the injured worker, and we are advocates of the truth,” Ms. Storment said. “Our goal is to work with health care professionals to advance the healing process and to get the injured worker back to work and earning a paycheck again.”
Ninety-three percent of the division’s field case management files close with a medical release to return to work, Ms. Storment said.
“Marijo completely understands her business and how it strategically provides excellent services to injured workers and value to her investors. She achieves this balance with complete humility,” said Lisa G. Hannusch, CEO of Rhino Inspired/The Hannusch Group LLC in Austin, Texas, who worked with Ms. Storment when she was with Alaris. “As a colleague, I continue to watch to see where her name will appear next, and I know for certain it will be a good story.”
