Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the big kickoff of the National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference here in Fabulous Las Vegas! Today we have a sneak peek from several companies who will unveil new products in conjunction with the show, including enhancements and new products from DataCare, Priority Care Solutions, and Delphi Technology. Make sure to check out CID Management’s interesting set of “Mini Seminars” as well!
Also in the news today is One Call Medical, who after numerous acquisitions (which we’ve covered previously) and a significant merger with MSC, are announcing their new rebranding/name change to “One Call Care Management”.
Finally, we have a bit of research with the release of WCRI’s CompScope Benchmarks report for Texas, in which WCRI found that costs per workers’ comp claim in Texas fell 4 percent in 2010, a larger drop than in most of the states in the 16-state study. The decline came after three years of growth averaging 5 percent per year from 2006 to 2009. Find out more by clicking here!
