OIS/WCB

If you are hurt at work, we are here to make sure you receive the services you need to recover and return to work.

Occupational Injury Service (OIS) is a WCB Alberta program developed to help employees who are injured on the job get treated and back to work faster. If your company partners with Medicentres to provide OIS, we will make sure your employee gets the care they need to manage their injury and get them safely back to work.Our OIS approach leads to reductions in wait times, enhanced communication, while increasing satisfaction for injured workers, unions, employers and WCB Case Managers. What else do you get with OIS?

•Same-day access to a Medicentres Physician with a background in work-related injury management and WCB training. Injured workers are typically seen within 30 minutes of arriving at the clinic.
• If required, we are able to expedite diagnostics such as MRIs, CT, Bone Scans and Ultrasounds as well as some treatment services.
• Medicentres will deliver same-day completion and submission of reports to WCB.
• Medicentres will deliver detailed communication to the injured worker, the employer and the worker’s family physician about the workers abilities and restrictions.
• Individualized return-to-work plan.
• Follow-up support.
