Webinar to Examine Latest Work Comp Benchmark Study Results: Top 3 Obstacles to Superior Claims Performance & Strategies to Overcome Them

May 26, 2022 – Chicago, IL – Experts from Rising Medical Solutions’ annual Workers’ Compensation Benchmarking Study will share the most recent research findings in a free webinar on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. Entitled “Three Obstacles to Providing Superior Claims Performance and What Organizations Must Do to Overcome Them,” the webinar will detail the consistently top ranked impediments to claims management mastery and how higher performing organizations are surmounting them.

Since the study’s inception, both claims leader and frontline professional survey participants have repeatedly identified the same three obstacles – 1) Iack of adequate return to work options, 2) the impact of litigation on claims outcomes, and 3) psychosocial factors and other co-morbidities that delay and impair recovery – to be the foremost barriers to achieving positive claim results. Connecting them all is one common theme – their respective solutions all require operational transformation.

In this one-hour webinar, study experts will examine what higher performing organizations are doing to transform legacy processes, mindsets, and semantics to advance in the face of deeply entrenched challenges and propel new levels of claims management mastery.

Moderated by Risk & Insurance® Editor-In-Chief Dan Reynolds, the webinar will feature:

  • Denise Algire, Director of Risk Initiatives & National Medical Director, Albertsons Companies
  • Suzanne Emmet, Senior Vice President of Claims, Eastern Alliance Insurance Group
  • Marcos Iglesias, MD, Vice President, Chief Medical Director, Travelers
  • Jason Beans, Chief Executive Officer, Rising Medical Solutions

Webinar registration is required and space is limited. Registrants will also receive a complimentary copy of the 2021 Workers’ Compensation Benchmarking Study Report.
