Cambridge, MA – As policymakers and other stakeholders look for ways to improve outcomes for workers injured on the job, one health care delivery model that has received a lot of attention lately is Centers of Excellence (CsOE).
Dr. Randall Lea, an orthopedic surgeon and senior research fellow at the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI), will be conducting a free hour-long webinar on Thursday, October 10, 2019, at 2pm ET.
In the session Dr. Lea will:
- define CsOE,
- describe how they compare with other care delivery models,
- review evidence on the extent to which they improve care and decrease costs, and
- discuss the relevance of CsOE in our current environment and the role they might play in treating workers injured on the job.
“It is likely that more and different types of CsOE will emerge in workers’ compensation,” said Dr Lea. “Depending on your role in the industry, you may be asked to be involved or make decisions about their use. My hope is the material we discuss during the webinar will help you identify those CsOE that provide the best and most comprehensive care possible.”
The webinar is free. Attendance is limited to 500 people, and all attendees receive a free copy of the slides and a recording of the webinar.
