Workers' Compensation Medical Issues

CHSWC logo

Workers' compensation medical issues include treatment protocols, guides and guidelines, integrated care, pharmacy, fee schedules, physician reports, medical access, and quality-of-care measurements. Quality-of-care measurements assess medical outcomes in terms of physical recovery and patient satisfaction. Medical treatment also covers issues of costs to the payer, as well as costs to the system.
