Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features a guest post from Kimberly George and Mark Walls of Out Front Ideas that delves deeper into the issues they recently covered in their first webcast of the year.
The post covers 20 workers’ compensation issues that we should all be watching in 2017, including the impact of the recent election, subsequent changes relating to the ACA and how OSHA will position itself going forward. Focusing closer we see State Legislative Agendas, Constitutional Challenges, and Treatment Guideline developments. Turning their aim to worker care, Alternatives to Opioids for Chronic Pain, the Impaired Workforce, and the Occupational Disease spectrum will continue to be areas of focus. Finally, as the industry evolves, Workers’ Comp faces a wide array of areas for self-examination, including the Talent Gap, the rise of Machine Learning and AI, External Disruptors like Automation, and even its Public Image.
