We Are OM
The story of OM began in 2004 when Mari and Ozzy Diaz founded the company with the goal of providing better access to specialty medical providers for professionals working within the workers' compensation industry, as they saw the need for providers who understood the specialized needs of injured employees and the requirements of professionals working within the workers' compensation system. This remains the main objective of the company today.
In 2010, as their business rapidly grew, OM established the WorkCompReady™ certification and began providing much-needed education, training, and continuous support services to hundreds of doctors in the workers' compensation industry. As a result, The OM Directory was created as a print directory to hand out to employers, adjusters, case managers, and attorneys looking for qualified doctors to treat their injured workers. Both the WorkCompReady™ training and Directory quickly became an industry standard of excellence.
It's no secret that 2010 was a big year for OM. But what you might not know is that they did it again in 2011. They created the Bloom Awards, formerly known as IN TOUCH Awards, which recognizes the best-of-the-best in workers' compensation and celebrates excellence through an annual awards gala. Since then, these awards have become a workers' compensation industry staple.
Fast forward to 2022, OM realized that the doctors needed better access to the WorkCompReady™ certification, and employers and adjusters needed a faster way to find a WorkCompReady™ doctor. So, the company started talking with their clients and industry professionals about what they needed from a directory and how they could enhance the WorkCompReady™ training program. In addition to that, OM created the OM Best Doctors in Workers' Compensation list, which recognizes experienced and skilled doctors who are dedicated to helping patients return to work safely after a workplace injury through early diagnosis, minimally invasive treatment techniques, and effective communication and access to care. Being listed as one of the Best Doctors in Workers' Compensation is a great honor.
Throughout its history, OM has grown and changed in many ways, but it has remained committed to its core mission of connecting employers, adjusters, and nurses with the most qualified doctors. This is demonstrated through the creation and continued development of the WorkCompReady™ certification program, the OM Directory, and the OM Best Doctors in Workers' Compensation list, as well as the annual Bloom Awards.
