Our Consulting and Analytics Division was developed in order to broaden our ability to facilitate lower costs, improve outcomes, and reduce the degree of uncertainty of ultimate claims costs for our clients.
While consulting and analytics are not new concepts in workers' compensation cost containment, linking them directly to a law firm is. Litigated claims drive severity and a disproportionate amount of cost. Litigation management goals of clients and law firms should synchronize. Our technology, analytics, program oversight and consulting reduce claim costs and shorten life cycles of claims.
For more information about these services, please contact Karen Stankevitz, Director of Consulting Services or Misty Price, Director of Analytics .
