Sedgwick CMS Total Absence Management System (TAMS) Improves Absenteeism Experience for Employers, Employees



    MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 27 /CNW/ -- Sedgwick Claims Management Services,
Inc. (Sedgwick CMS) has introduced the next generation of its total absence
management system (TAMS) for the administration of incidental and casual
absences, Family Medical Leaves, and state mandated and customized employee
leave programs.  As part of Sedgwick CMS's proprietary JURIS(R) claims
management information system, the enhanced TAMS module offers streamlined
administration of absence programs and advanced options for integrating the
delivery of FMLA, disability and workers' compensation claims management
services.
    "The Sedgwick CMS TAMS solution provides a comprehensive platform for the
integrated administration of virtually all types of employee absences,
resulting in advantages for both employers and employees," said Bradley F.
Johnson, executive vice president and national director of disability
operations for Sedgwick CMS.  "For employers the results are improved
productivity and greater economy through more reliable and effective
management of time away from work programs.  For workers the result is a more
convenient, user-friendly and constructive engagement with their employer
during periods of absence."
    The enhanced TAMS module incorporates advances in intelligent workflow
automation and document imaging capabilities that improve the accuracy and
efficiency of absence management services.  The system also reinforces
regulatory compliance and supports claims professionals in dealing with
complex and high value cases.  Additionally, flexible programming tools make
it easy for Sedgwick CMS to accommodate client requirements for customized
features.
    Sedgwick CMS has begun the phased migration of current absence management
clients to its next generation TAMS solution and will implement the facility
for new clients beginning in January of 2008.
