Estimating the Net Benefit of a Specialized Return-to-Work Program for Workers on Short-Term Disability Related to a Mental Disorder
An Example Exploring Investment in Collaborative Care Objective: This article estimates the net benefit for a company incorporating a collaborative care model into its return-to-work program for workers on short-term disability related to a mental disorder. Methods: Employing a simple decision model, the net benefit and uncertainty were explored. Results: The breakeven point occurs when the average short-term disability episode is reduced by at least 7 days. In addition, 85% of the time, benefits could outweigh costs. Conclusions: Model results and sensitivity analyses indicate that organizational...

Given the available data, this paper analyzes the impact of part-time sick leave (PTSL) on the probability of fully recovering lost work capacity for employees diagnosed with an MD. Methods: The effects of PTSL on the probability of fully recovering lost work capacity are estimated by a discrete choice one-factor model using data on a nationally representative sample extracted from the register...
