Webinar – True Partners: Accessing Actionable Data in WC Through More Transparent, Collaborative Vendor Relationships
Everyone agrees that gaining access to meaningful, actionable data in a timely manner is one of the keys to balancing return on investment and achieving great workers’ compensation claims outcomes. But getting to that goal is easier said than done.
Time and again, we hear stories about the frustrations claims executives experience in getting the data that they want, when they want it: Whether that be from carriers, pharmacy benefit managers, or medical service providers.
In this November, 2014 webinar, Patty Hostine, a 2014 Risk All Star and Responsibility Leader® and the US Director of Disability Management with Flex N Gate, will discuss her approach to creating effective relationships with vendors that stress the importance of timely data transparency.
Patty will be joined by Jerry Poole, the president and CEO of Acrometis, a claims processing software provider that uses technology to break down the barriers to the safe, effective transmission of actionable claims data.
Hostine and Poole will discuss:
- What types of data are critical to risk managers in reducing their cost of risk and how to overcome the challenges in obtaining the data, especially when it resides with partners.
- Using data from multiple sources to create a meaningful risk picture.
- The responsibilities of all involved in the gathering and sharing of critical data, including the employer. This includes effective communication with payers on what data is important to your program and creating expectations on when and how you want that data delivered.
- Defining and branding your program and its goals so that a productive environment is created for all participants while a high level of partner accountability is achieved.
- Understanding the benefits to everyone, including vendors, when they cooperate and provide data that risk managers are looking for.
- How to work with data to make lasting changes to your cost of risk, including what key data risk managers should be using but probably aren’t.
