Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of Mitchell’s Industry Trends Report (ITR) for the first quarter of 2018. In this edition they examine a couple of key industry trends, including the adoption of artificial intelligence, and and the role of auditing medical bills to identify costly billing errors.
In the casualty edition of the report, Mitchell notes that a recent study they conducted found approximately 35% of workers’ compensation bills contained some type of billing error. The article discusses identifying common errors, and provides solutions for simplifying the claims process, correcting mistakes and containing costs. Also in this edition is a discussion of the future of technology in workers’ comp, which examines the adoption of tools like artificial intelligence, wearables, chatbots, and mobile technology, with telemedicine predicted to have the biggest immediate impact on the industry.
