Eight new state-specific studies 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 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.
The studies interviewed workers who suffered a work place injury in 2010 and received workers’ compensation income benefits. The surveys were conducted during February through June 2013—on average, about three years after these workers sustained their injuries.
