Rising Medical Solutions Invited James Moore To Think Tank
A very forward-thinking company – Rising Medical Solutions- and Peter Rousmaniere invited me to a think tank type meeting earlier this year in Chicago.
There is no article on the J&L Risk Management website that covers the meeting as I decided to hold off until the final report was finished earlier this month. The all-day fly-in meeting was hosted by Rising Medical Solutions out of Chicago. From what I gather, the meetings had started in 2009 and continued through 2015.
Rising Medical Solutions were great hosts including their Head of Marketing Rachel Fikes. I very quickly felt at home. The summary report link is here. Yes, you do have to provide very little information to receive a copy of the report. It is worth it.
The report is 36 pages long. You can request the report here. Rising Medical Solutions is not a spammy company so your inbox will not be packed with emails from them if you happen to sign up. They have sent me two emails since June- not spammy.
One very important area covered was improving the recruiting, hiring, training, and retention of claims adjusters. Check this older post by me with my concerns on the brain-drain and lack of a younger crowd in adjusting and Risk Management.
This is an area where there will be a large amount of future discussion. Claims and Risk Management are not the glamorous smart-phone based positions that appeal to the current crop of college graduates or young workers.
Even though I did “end up with the skunk” by the end of the meeting, it was time well spent. That is an inside joke.
Denise Zoe Algire – Safeway’s Risk Management guru also deserves a shout-out as she is the lead researcher on this much-needed study.
