Experts in Pain Relief Using Virtual Reality, Behavioral Coaching Will Bring A New Perspective On Workers’ Compensation Policies, Treatments and Reimbursement
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) has appointed two Harvard MedTech executives to its committees.
Harvard MedTech Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Gerry Stanley, M.D., P-CEO, and Mark Moore, Senior Vice President, Market Partnerships, have both been appointed to serve on the Work Disability Prevention and Return to Work committee. In addition, Dr. Stanley will serve on Medical Issues committee of IAIABC, and Mark Moore was appointed to the Regulation Committee. All appointments are effective May 2022.
Since it was founded in 1914, the IAIABC has been providing information and education on workers’ compensation policy, regulation, and administration. Today, the IAIABC is the largest trade association of workers’ compensation jurisdictional agencies in North America.
“The IAIABC is at the forefront of providing information and education on workers’ compensation policy, regulation, and administration,” Dr. Stanley said. “Mark and I are honored to be appointed to serve on these critical committees.”
The workers’ compensation sector has long struggled to find solutions to alleviate chronic pain and trauma, resolve behavioral health issues related to injuries, and find alternatives to treat pain without potentially addictive drugs, expensive surgeries, or long-term therapy. Harvard MedTech’s Vx® Therapy solution treats all aspects of trauma by retraining neural pathways and changing the way the brain interprets and processes emotions and physical pain. Patients learn to lessen the experience of pain, become more resilient, recover faster and re-engage with their lives and work.
IAIABC’s Work Disability Prevention and Return to Work Committee engages workers’ compensation and disability experts to learn, collaborate, and execute best practices to prevent and minimize work disability and improve return to work outcomes to benefit workers, their families, employers, and society. The Medical Issues committee exists to identify problems, challenges, and innovative approaches in the fields of occupational health medicine, disability, and rehabilitation; develop implementation strategies, information, and technical resources; and provide inter-jurisdictional assistance to promote best medical and disability management practices. The Regulatory Committee addresses regulatory issues related to workers’ compensation.
