MedRisk’s CSO discusses overcoming psychosocial and physical barriers to recovery

MedRisk’s Chief Strategy Officer Ruth Estrich and Macy’s Vice President of Risk Management Ann Schnure will share the stage at the 2016 RIMS Annual Conference and Exhibition on April 12.

Their presentation, “Overcoming Psychosocial Barriers to Recovery: Is it a Viable Solution?” explores integrated, patient-centric solutions to both physical and psychosocial barriers to recovery in workers’ compensation cases. Estrich and Schnure highlight psychosocial risk factors that affect work disability and share successes from a comprehensive, integrated program.

The session starts at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday April 12. RIMS will be held in San Diego, April 10-13.
