Occupational Health Management System (OHMS)

What is OHMS?

The Occupational Health Management System (OHMS) is a web-based computer system that will provide front-end case-management tools to help coordinate services for injured workers.
OHMS includes:

  • Administration and reporting tools for use by COHE staff and other external participants in best-practice programs and pilots.
  • Role-based access to care-coordination services, best-practice activities, provider support, COHE support and management, and analysis and reporting. 

OHMS is not the official claim record

OHMS only provides limited information to the official claim record.  For example, the HSC Case Note.  L&I core systems (LINIIS, MIPS, and ECS) are the system of record for all claim information.

When will OHMS be available?

The initial release will be available to each COHE at the beginning of their contract period of performance, and will be focused on functionality to support health services coordination.

Future improvements

OHMS functionality will be phased in through 2015, with improvements approximately every 6 months. By design, OHMS includes both mandatory and voluntary functionality. Improvements will include new functions, features, documentation, and training materials.

See your contract for details on the components of OHMS which will be phased in over time.

Your input is valuable

In order to ensure that OHMS meets the needs of its users, we will periodically gather input from COHE staff. This includes soliciting input from health services coordinators, program and medical directors, providers, and other users.

Setting up and training new users

After a new COHE staff person is hired, gets a provider ID, and signs any supplemental applications, their COHE supervisor should notify the OHMS Access Managers (Noha Gindy or Kim Arakawa) then follow these instructions to set them up as an OHMS user:

The COHE should include OHMS basics in their regular training schedule and contact the OHMS Help numbers (360-902-6564 or 360-902-6337) to arrange more training. OHMS Training can be arranged in a variety of ways, including on-site, at L&I, over the phone, or in a webinar.
