Research Overview: Time from Injury to Medical Treatment: How States Compare
Last summer, the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) published its latest data comparing the various state workers’ compensation systems and its performance on “Time From Injury to Medical Treatment Benchmarks.” During this presentation, WCRI Regional Director, Laure Lamy, will review the data included in the report and illustrate the key findings that indicate best practices and areas for improvement in states across the country. Are there key characteristics of high-performing states that may improve return-to-work in other jurisdictions?

Panel Discussion: Increasing Value and Improving Outcomes for Injured Workers
Armed with the foundational data presented in the WCRI study, as reported by Ms. Lamy, our interactive panel of clinicians and orthopaedic executives will explore opportunities for collaboration that will promote efficiency, reduce cost, and provide quality care in the workers’ compensation arena. What are those avoidable redundancies or communication breakdowns that extend return-to-work? Are there preferred strategies to align incentives throughout the system that will improve outcomes for injured workers and their employers?
