Tulsa, OK, June 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Gatesway Foundation and Emerge Diagnostics are pleased to announce the first Oklahoma implementation of the EFA Soft Tissue Management - EFA STM© Program. The program is specifically designed to assist employers in offering better treatment options for compensable work related injuries.
The EFA STM Program provides a blueprint to determine injuries that arise out of the course and scope of employment (AOECOE) and they are confident this will have a positive impact on the community.
“We are now a Tulsa based company and look forward to partnering with employers and assisting employees all across Oklahoma in providing a proactive, objective medical tool to assist with the evaluation and outcomes for soft tissue injuries. We want to thank Judi Myers and the Gatesway family for becoming our very first partner in Oklahoma,” said Jerry W. Wilkins, CEO of Emerge Diagnostics.
“We’re so excited to be partnering with Emerge Diagnostics in this fantastic new venture,” said Judi Myers, Gatesway Foundation CEO. "The EFA STM Program will provide us with a valuable insight in assessing soft tissue injuries which will, in the long run, lower workman’s compensation claims and allow employees to safely return to work with less turnaround time. We’re proud to be one of the first employers in the area to be offering this worthwhile service."
