Boca Raton, FL – NCCI recently released an update to its Medical Indicators and Trends Dashboard Q4 2020 Edition as part of its ongoing strategy to deliver more medical data insight for analysis. The dashboard provides an interactive way to visualize state-specific information presented in the Q2 and Q3 2020 Medical Perspective reports and allows you to download various summary tables.
This second edition of the dashboard now includes summarized statistics for hospital outpatient services and ambulatory surgery centers, in addition to the key metrics we have been following to better understand the direct and indirect impacts of COVID-19. These include impacts to physician services, time to treatment, telemedicine, prescription drugs, and specific COVID-19 treated claim characteristics.
The data source used in this dashboard is NCCI’s Medical Data Call. The Medical Data Call represents data from most of the workers compensation premium written, which includes experience for large-deductible policies. Lump-sum settlements are not required to be reported. Also, self-insured data is generally not included.
While it is too early to fully assess the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the workers compensation system, this dashboard allows users to analyze state-specific medical treatment results during the spread of the pandemic.
