Amramp shares installed accessibility innovations at NWCDC, nation's leading workers' compensation conference

 

For 24 years, the National Workers' Compensation and Disability Conference® (NWCDC) has provided the best workers' compensation and disability management training available. Attracting thousands of industry professionals this year in New Orleans as well as more than 260 vendors, the NWCDC is the nation's leading event for anyone involved in the workers' compensation.

 

In 2015 alone, this industry assisted some 2.9 million Americans who experienced nonfatal workplace injuries in the private sector, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

NWCDC organizers selected 260+ vendors of claims management software, cost containment solutions, managed care services, medical/pharmaceutical products, RTW services, risk management solutions, and much more: “There's no better place to find, compare, and contrast all the products, tools, and services to help you with your toughest workers’ comp and disability management challenges.”

 

Wheelchair manufacturer and installer Amramp will be exhibiting hand-selected innovative accessibility products, including the ADA-compliant, patented modular ramp system.

 

 

Attendees can also complete continuing education credits, approved for AAOHN, CDMSC, CCMC, CRCC, CWCP, and HRCI.

 

NWCDC kicks off with an opening keynote by Tim East, Director of Corporate Risk Management at The Walt Disney Company. “Fueling Injury Recovery With Engaged Workers” focuses on engaging injured workers in their own recovery. Resolving claims, East advocates, “produces better outcomes for both the employer and employee.” East will discuss how changing demands for technological experiences provide clues for how workers’ comp must evolve to meet the claims experiences workers now demand.

 

One of the myriad mega-sessions includes: “Preventing Prolonged Disability by Assessing and Eliminating Psychosocial Barriers” by Marcos Iglesias M.D., VP & Medical Director at The Hartford. A common challenge for workers’ compensation and disability managers is the conundrum caused by different individuals with the same medical conditions having widely dissimilar recovery durations. Since risk factors for delayed recoveries and disparate functional outcomes can be uncovered and addressed, Dr. Iglesias will “provide practical tools and interventions for mitigating psychosocial risk factors as well as examine how to help workers reengage with normal life activities through measures such as a biopsychosocial model of health.” Dr. Iglesias draws from his experience overseeing the development and implementation of comprehensive disability management solutions that focus on early identification of psychosocial risk factors and appropriate early interventions.

 

With 45 locally owned and operated locations across the US – and now in Canada – Amramp is dedicated to helping injured employees and anyone experiencing mobility challenges regain their freedom. Wheelchair manufacturer and installer Amramp’s installed innovative accessibility products, includes the ADA–compliant, patented modular ramp system. On-site estimates are free and installation is generally within days, often within 24 hours.
