Best Practices

The COHE will encourage and support provider adoption of occupational best practices developed by L&I. These best practices are:

  • Submitting a complete Report of Accident (ROA) in 2 business days or less.
  • Completing an Activity Prescription Form (APF) on the first office visit or when patient restrictions change.
  • 2-way communication with the employer when patients are off or expected to be off work;
  • Assessing and documenting patient’s Barriers to Return to Work (BRTW), and developing a plan to overcome the barriers.
