Les Shute Joins FOTO, Inc. as Director of Business Development
Les Shute has joined the FOTO, Inc. team as Director of Business Development. Les will enable payers and medical management vendors in the workman's compensation industry to utilize FOTO's patient-centered functional improvement tracking and outcomes reporting solutions.
The FOTO Management System and the FOTO reports allow customers to track functional improvement among claimants throughout the life of a claim and compare risk-adjusted provider performance over several medical specialties. The most effective way to manage quality of care is in the selection of treating providers who consistently produce the best outcomes. Customers often use FOTO data for the purpose of identifying top-performing providers who deliver the highest value in the treatment of injured workers. Overall, FOTO helps payers in the efficient delivery of medical benefits and control claims costs while improving patient engagement and satisfaction.
"My passion is to promote and support a paradigm shift away from commoditization towards value-oriented healthcare delivery" said Les. "My goal is to expand the use of FOTO Outcomes tracking and reporting as a new standard for use throughout the worker's compensation."
Les has been in the workman's compensation industry for over 23 years.
