The notes are broken down into five categories; plagiarizing Bob's post hopefully with his permission:
Summit Notes – These are generalized notes of comments made during our two days of discussion. They are generally presented in the overall order they were made.
Friction Points – these notations were part of a discussion about those transactional points that slow down, increase the cost or potentially disrupt the claims process.
Paradoxical Incentive Points – these notes are related to discussions where incentive/payment structures may not be in line with desired outcomes.
Regulatory Points – a great deal of energy went into discussing regulatory burdens and oversight as related to workers’ compensation. These are broken out for your benefit here.
Imperative Issues* – These are the final points that the group identified as pain points or problem areas within workers’ compensation. *IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THIS FINAL DOCUMENT: This is simply the release of a rough outline. The group will be working further on these points, and is currently undergoing a survey process to prioritize these particular issues. Once that is complete, we plan a more formalized document that contains a “Statement of Purpose” as well as extended commentary surrounding these points.
Bob's blog post where you can not only download these documents, but also leave comment for aggregation and inclusion is http://www.workerscompensation.com/compnewsnetwork/from-bobs-cluttered-desk/23908-the-notes-from-the-workers-comp-summit-now-it-is-your-turn-to-join-the-national-conversation.html.
Summit attendees are encouraging comment and participation regarding these notes and documents. Please comment either at the bottom of Bob's post, or in any of the LinkedIn groups where these notes are available and/or discussed.
Thanks to Bob Wilson and David Langham for putting the Summit together and getting things moving. Thanks also to all of the participants for taking time to participate with no other agenda than hoping to improve work injury protection systems.
