TRIUNE's  Vocational Team Saving Money and Making Its Clients Happy!



Amanda Ortman, TRIUNE Health Group Vocational Rehabilitation Consultant Department, just wrapped up another file with a successful outcome.  In this case, the Injured Worker (IW) had been employed as a Communications Technician/Installer for a large communications company.  He was 29 years of age, had a high school diploma, and had previous work experience as an armed guard, machinist, and carpenter.  

The IW had sustained a knee injury and had been released to RTW at a medium physical demand level. There were added restrictions of NO squatting or climbing.  The restrictions prevented a return to any past work.

The IW's file was referred to our office 2 years after his date of injury. Initially we were asked to complete a Vocational Assessment and Labor Market Survey. We then provided the IW with Job Placement services.  Amanda helped the IW with Job Seeking Skills Training, interviewing preparation, resume development, and job development assistance. 

In less than a month, at a total file cost of under $7,000.00, the IW secured full-time employment as a sales representative with advancement opportunities.  The IW  is happy to be working again after nearly 2 years.


Amanda and the entire Staff at TRIUNE Health Group would welcome the opportunity to assist you with your next file.  Please consider your caseload and ask what TRIUNE Health Group can do to help you.  Contact Stephen Sprauer, Vocational Services Manager, at 800-633-0884, to discuss your specific needs or visit our website at www.triunehealthgroup.com to make a referral.
