Dr Paul Pers, Director, FORE cms
Heather Carine brought to the return to work research project a sound understanding of medical research, insurance and due diligence.  She produced a report that suited medical and insurance professionals, and future commercial partners of FORE.

FORE is an Australian company focused on addressing the problem of under-performance in the insurance industry and employment sector.  Their core product is a software program which provides tools for claims management staff to better manage claims.

Established by two medical professionals and a behavioural specialist from the insurance industry, the trio bring their decades of experience dealing with accident and return to work claims

FORE has developed a technology solution that fills a performance gap and combines behavioural science and the art of influence – leading to mindset change in the work injured.

FORE harnesses the power of positive psychology, behavioural science and studies of the predictors of worklessness to drive results. FORE takes complex theories and proprietary algorithms, to deliver a simple user experience.

Needs:  As experienced medical and insurance professionals, the team at FORE knew that another accident compensation and life insurance claims management system on its own wouldn’t alter the incentives for injured/ill claimants to return to work.

FORE set out to develop a better case management system that builds on a solid platform of evidence based medical and behavioural studies on the barriers to return to work.

To satisfy potential commercial partners or customers from the medical profession and insurance companies, it was important that FORE could demonstrate the medical and behavioural evidence based studies that underpin their product’s revolutionary positive psychology and behavioural science approach to getting injured people back to work.

Solution:  Carine Research undertook a comprehensive medical literature review identifying the risks for delayed return to work in workers compensation, motor accident and personal injury sectors, and reviewed the research for the quality of evidence of the studies for each return to work factor.
