New this year is a full-day provider staff forum track on Friday, March 9, designed specifically for office support staff. BWC and managed care organization experts are leading the provider staff forum sessions. This track is recommended for office staff/administrators who are responsible for the day-to-day operations of workers’ compensation processes and workflows within a health-care system.
Remember, registration closed early last year. Our event is limited to 700 attendees for the provider clinical education track and 125 attendees for the provider staff forum track.
Online registration is open. The BWC website outlines the details for session topics and speakers. If you have questions, call the BWC’s provider contact center at 800.644.6292, options 0-3-0, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Medical & Health Symposium runs in conjunction with BWC’s Ohio Safety Congress & Expo. Together, we can make a difference in the care of Ohio’s injured workers – at home and at work.
