Dear Senator Jenkins, 

Eight new state-specific studies from the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) identified new predictors of worker outcomes that can help public officials, payors, and health care providers improve the treatment and communication an injured worker receives after an injury ---     leading to better outcomes.


The studies, Predictors of Worker Outcomes, found trust in the workplace to be one of the more important predictors that has not been examined before. The studies also identified workers with specific comorbid medical conditions (existing simultaneously with and usually independently of another medical condition) by asking whether the worker had received treatment for hypertension, diabetes, and heart problems.


The studies are based on telephone interviews with 3,200 injured workers across eight states. The eight states are Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.


As an elected official who makes public policy decisions regarding workers' compensation, you and your staff have complimentary access to this report. Click on the following links to access these new WCRI reports:
