WorkCompReccap: Research & Replay!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the TDI-DWC’s Research and Evaluation Group’s release of its 2017 research agenda, which lays out plans for efforts to provide critical data for decision-makers in the Texas workers’ compensation system (but can also be useful for broader insights as well).

Key areas of focus this year will include completion of the 11th edition of the Workers’ Comp Health Care Network Report Card, evaluation of use and cost patterns of compound drugs, analysis of adequacy of workers comp income benefits, and an update on the 2003 impact of work-hardening/work conditioning programs. It was also noted that the group was previously under the TDI, but moved under the DWC specifically in January, with Commissioner Brannan hoping to take the groups efforts “up a notch” wherever possible.
