WCB Modernization & Reform

The New York State Workers Compensation Board requires a Tester for our Modernization Program.
The New York State Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) is undertaking a multi-year effort to redefine its role in the Workers' Compensation system, improve access to quality medical care and improve the underlying technology systems that support the organization. These goals challenge many of the fundamental operating assumptions that the Board has maintained for decades. To accomplish this effort, the Board has established a WCB Modernization Program as the vehicle for change. Within this program, the Board will sponsor a host of projects that will each support a specific goal toward the overarching objectives of the program. At its highest level, the redesign of the Workers' Compensation Board will help Injured Workers' Employers, Providers, and Payors. The objectives of the Modernization Program include:
a) Change the role of the WCB in protecting the rights of injured workers.
