Cambridge, MA – The Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) recently announced a free one-hour webinar that will discuss the fundamentals of value-based care (VBC) and its potential use in workers’ compensation. Giving the webinar will be Dr. Randall Lea, an orthopedic surgeon and senior research fellow at WCRI.

“Some believe VBC will never come to pass in workers’ compensation,” said Dr. Lea. “Others believe the conditions are ripe for its expansion into injured-worker medical treatment and that we are only a few years away from broad adoption. The purpose of this webinar, like all of WCRI’s research, is to educate without making recommendations or taking a position.”

Topics to be covered include:

  • What VBC is
  • Six common payment methods used in VBC and how they work
  • Strategies used in VBC to improve quality while decreasing costs
  • Challenges to using VBC in workers’ compensation
  • How payment methods and VBC strategies might be transferable to workers’ compensation and why

The free webinar is scheduled for Thursday, January 10, 2019, at 2 p.m. ET.
