Is there a correlation between America’s increased #Suicide rates and the #OpioidEpidemic? The negative effects of inappropriately prescribed #Opioids on public health are multiple. However, the data shows that there is a promising #PatientCentric solution that is highly effective in preventing the inappropriate first exposure to opioids for #Patients.
I had the humbling opportunity to write a piece for @WorkCompCentral’s #WorkCompWorld blog earlier this week. The theme is #PatientEngagement in #WorkersCompensation. Be sure to read the blog and share your thoughts on why, or why not, the industry is on the right track in this area. Please limit your remarks to #PatientEngagement as it pertains to #WorkComp.
As an aside, I’m ecstatic that the #CompLaudeGala is just a few days away. @ReedGroup is a sponsor of the #InjuredWorkerScholarship this year. I cannot wait to speak with as many #Patients / #Workers as possible. If you’re planning on attending the event, please help point me in the right direction! See you there!

The challenges experienced in the care and claim continuum are plentiful and very difficult to navigate. Providers, insurers, employers, and employees deserve content measured and deemed trustworthy according to non-bias standards to guide injured workers to recovery.
With the deep knowledge base and hands on experience of how quickly a workers’ compensation claim can go into free fall toward catastrophic health and recovery outcomes for the injured worker, why aren’t more “thought-leaders” challenging the status quo to identify inadvertent, or in some cases intended, consequences in their respective areas of expertise? Let me know your thoughts on “Why Standards Matter”.
