Research and Standards Committee

Co-Chair: Crystal Ricciuti, New York State Workers' Compensation Board

Co-Chair: Lisa Anne Bickford, Aetna/Coventry Workers' Comp Services

The Research and Standards Committee exists to identify objective, accurate and comparable approaches to working with data from multiple jurisdictions; provide tools, information and research that helps jurisdictions identify best practices in the fields of occupational health, medicine, disability management, indemnity benefits and rehabilitation; establish benchmarks that gauge progress towards the goals of effective workers' compensation systems; and periodically survey and compile information that allows meaningful comparison of workers' compensation systems so that jurisdictions are able to evaluate their own system performance in relation to other jurisdictions.
