Good morning,

I'm trying to think of new and better benchmark ideas-to track improvements and motivate folks. Historically we benchmark on closures, timely initial payments and settlements. What are successful benchmarks you look at to improve results? Other ideas I think about are, average days of lost time (does one remove the ptd claims, and there may be other nuances), and return to work with the pre-injury employer? Are there benchmarks you have that you really like?

Does anyone measure medical provider outcomes? If so, how has that gone? If I could give you call, please let me know.

Thank you!

Meg, I am willing to discuss I would also like to find new benchmarks. Your post speaks to benchmarks similar to ours. We have implemented PT/OT UR that involve our staff physical therapist and occupation therapist. This effort has proved to be effective.
