Why is this information collected and how is it used?

- If patient is off work, their rehabilitation might be phased or staged to address different factors at different times.
- Where a person is off work for 30 days or more, the care and recovery activities, including return to work planning, will be transferred to a Customer Recovery Specialist. This role is new, and similar to the prior Rehab Department roles. The Customer Recovery Specialist may seek out information from the MRP and there are conference fees to support this service.
