What: A short list of trends related to workers compensation includes:
1. Aggressive Total/Partial Joint Replacement Surgeries
2. Increasingly Sophisticated Bionic Implants/Prosthetics
3. Changing Demographics of the Workforce
4. Better Recovery that Limits Risk of Permanent Partial Impairment
Why: Employers should be aware that as states tend to use automated processes to streamline their workers compensation claims, this can often result in more expensive but not necessarily more effective treatment options.
