CAMBRIDGE, OH— Southeastern Med is proud to recognize three physical therapists for being named board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialists by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

Ryan McConkey, PT, DPT, OCS, Joe Ogle, PT, MSPT, OCS & Dominic Crock, PT, DPT, OCS were each awarded the designation of board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist for the second time in their careers. The trio earned their first board-certifications in 2007.

Less than 1% of physical therapy professionals have achieved the designation of board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. This equates to 328 orthopedic specialists out of more than 3,500 physical therapy professionals. Dominic Crock, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Southeastern Med said “Most of the places that push for [this certification] are academic places [such as] Ohio State or the bigger teaching institutions, so to have one in a small town is a big thing. To have three in a small town is a really big thing.”

WorkProCAMBRIDGE, OH— Workpro has recently begun using electronic chain of custody forms for drug testing. This process allows the employer to send an employee for a drug test without the need to send numerous forms to be used during the process. The web-based electronic format allows Workpro collectors to follow specific on-screen instructions and reduce the likelihood of error during the collection process.
Michele Sills, Workpro’s Drug Free Workplace specialist, said “Alere EScreen® and Formfox® are electronic platforms which allow us to expand our services to employers across the United States who choose to do business in our area.”

“An employer from Texas who uses these electronic systems would be able to provide their employee with a bar-coded order which would allow our collectors to scan and complete testing without the need to store forms within our facility. This reduces any errors and also allows electronic storage of files versus the need to store paper forms in boxes throughout the department”, explains Joe Ogle, Director of Workpro.

Workpro has several certified collectors onsite with over 50 years of combined experience in the collection process. Sills and Darla Carpenter, nurse case manager at Workpro, are veteran collectors and also collector trainers who certify all collectors within Southeastern Med.
