Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many workers’ comp organizations instituted hiatuses in 2020 for their annual conferences. However, some events have begun to return to in-person formats, including the Workers’ Compensation Institute (WCI) Educational Conference and the Southern Association of Workers’ Compensation Administrators (SAWCA) All Committee Conference.
Healthe is a part of both conferences and we would like to share our involvement in these events.
Help Decorate Our Tree for Charity at WCI 2021
WCI is returning to Orlando, Florida for their 75th annual conference. This in-person event will take place from December 12-15th, featuring educational sessions and networking opportunities.
This year’s theme is Better Together, and Healthesystems invites attendees to visit Booth #913 to learn how our partnerships benefit injured worker patients. In the spirit of this theme, we will also be making charitable contributions for every visitor that stops by our booth.
Our booth will contain a holiday tree, and with a simple badge scan each visitor can place an ornament on our tree, representing one of two charities; Kids Chance, which provides scholarships to the children of injured workers, and Give Kids the World, which provides critically ill children and their families with week-long wish vacations.
For each visitor who scans their badge and decorates our tree, we will donate to the charity of their choice. In addition, visitors can enter our booth raffle for a chance to win a $250 gift card and pick up a copy of the new Winter 2021/2022 RxInformer.
SAWCA All Committee Conference
The SAWCA All Committee Conference took place from November 16-19th at St. Simons Island, Georgia, attended by regulators from 10 jurisdictions, along with industry professionals from across the nation.
The event featured networking opportunities and educational sessions, and Healthe’s AVP of Advocacy & Compliance, Sandy Shtab, took part in an Industry Roundtable, focusing on issues that impact the workers’ comp industry, with each panelist providing their unique industry perspective.
Topics discussed included broader healthcare regulation and its manifestation in workers’ comp, the need to modernize the industry to reduce administrative burden and reemphasize care management, and continuing to develop innovative solutions for age-old challenges.
The roundtable also featured Tom Glasson of AIG, Mark Walls of Safety National, Brian Allen of Enlyte (formerly Mitchell), and other industry professionals.
