At OccPhyz Consulting our Occupational Physicians are trained to perform Permanent Impairment Assessments (PI) using the American Medical Association’s Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 4th, 5th and 6th Editions. Their training also includes the relevant State Legislative Guidelines for Evaluation of Permanent Impairment (GEPI) – Qld, NSW, SA and WA. A Permanent Impairment assessment is performed once the claimant has reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI). MMI means that no likely improvement in their physical or psychological condition is expected in the next 12 months or beyond.
Upon reaching MMI, which is determined by history and clinical examination of the claimant, our Occupational Physicians will assess the percentage of permanent injury/impairment according to a mathematical equation as set out in the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. The Edition chosen is based upon the date of the injury and the particular Australian State legislation involved in the claim.
