Recently, we had the pleasure of speaking to one of our long-time members and chair of our Disability and Medical Management Program Advisory Board, Artemis Emslie of myMatrixx about how she came to know the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI).
As the former CEO of myMatrixx, An Express Scripts Company, Artemis led the strategic growth of the workers’ compensation division of the pharmacy benefit management (PBM) firm. With nearly 25 years of experience in both the workers’ compensation and group health industries, Artemis brings a multi-dimensional perspective to the complex issues facing PBM clients.
