Boca Raton, FL – NCCI recently announced the release of the Q4 2021 Edition of its Medical Indicators & Trends dashboard, which is part of NCCI’s ongoing strategy to deliver more medical data insight for analysis.
The dashboard provides an interactive way to visualize medical services provided before and after the spread of the pandemic—with early reporting of 2021 data for 39 jurisdictions and allows you to download various summary tables. It also provides an accounting of Q1 through Q4 2021 COVID-19 treated claims. More detailed state-specific Medical Data Reports can be found in State Insight, which is available to affiliates and regulators.
The dashboard also provides summarized statistics for several key metrics NCCI 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, hospital outpatient and ambulatory surgical center visits, COVID-19 treated claim characteristics, and the newly added active claim volume tab.
The data source used in the 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.
The dashboard allows users to analyze state-specific medical treatment results since the spread of the pandemic, as well as services provided through the fourth quarter of 2021 as reported through March 2022.
