Beyond the Claim: The past, present & future challenges in Workers’ Comp w/ Joe Paduda
The pandemic had a profound impact on workers compensation.
Because of COVID, workers’ comp had to revolutionize how it addressed claim intake, claim triage, claim reporting, claim qualification, and medical management virtually overnight.
And it’s still changing. Partially due to covid, but also a variety of other factors. In fact, the future of workers’ comp remains unwritten.

In this episode, we discuss:
- The effect opioids have had on claims costs
- How the pandemic has changed workers compensation
- What challenges and opportunities are lurking around the corner for workers compensation
