The annual WCRI meeting is just a couple weeks away – if you haven’t signed up, you better do it now – here.
I caught up with Executive Director Dr. Rick Victor via email last week to get his take on key findings. Understanding Rick doesn’t want to give too much away, here’s what attendees will hear..
MCM -There’s been a lot of recent research coming from WCRI; what has been the most surprising result that will be discussed at WCRI?
Rick Victor (RV) – An underappreciated, but likely very significant unintended consequence of the Affordable Care Act is shifting cases from group health to workers’ compensation.
MCM – What is a key finding attendees will take away?
RV – Why surgery rates vary from state to state
MCM – Do you see any conventionally held wisdom that will be confirmed, or rejected, by research presented at WCRI?
RV – For states that do not have fee schedules, the decision to adopt one is a strategic decision from which there may be no going backwards
One of the most useful aspects of the WCRI Conference is there are few events where the audience is as sophisticated, diverse, and knowledgeable. That’s why the conference is always sold out.
What does this mean for you?
Better be there…
