The studies reflect a multiyear effort by WCRI to collect and examine data on the outcomes of medical care achieved by injured workers in a growing number of states. By examining outcomes of injured workers, policymakers and other stakeholders can better understand how different state workers' compensation systems compare in order to identify and prioritize opportunities to improve system performance.
Interviews were conducted in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee in 2017. Interviews for all other states (Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin) were conducted from 2013 to 2016.
