NWCDC Conference 2018 – My Unending Technology Quest
The NWCDC Conference 2018 is tomorrow.
I plan to attend and go through the vendor area to see if there are any new technologies. The last few years have been a little disappointing as Workers Comp has been overall.
I thought I was not going to make it this year. Unfortunately, I had to miss the 2017 conference. Some of the more advanced we’re Proov Pharmaceutical testing and the beginning of Telemedicine
At the New Orleans Conference, a simple one crutch was a great low tech but yet highly useful Durable Medical equipment. Some things do not need a chip in them to be a cutting-edge tool.
Quite a few NWCDC conferences really had nothing to offer in the tech area. No blame can be placed on the conference. Most conferences trail health insurance greatly.
My annual searches for apps in Workers Compensation have not been that fruitful either. I am in the air typing this on my phone so this may be an unclean version.
If you see this article and want me to check out any vendor or class at the conference let me know. Text me at 919 495-1917 or comment below.
The conference features a robotics area. This should be in the vendor area. I am going into the conference “cold”. I have researched nothing.
I usually spend a few hours researching the vendors and the sessions. Due to a packed schedule that will not happen this year.
Claims based sessions usually provide a few good ideas. If anyone reading this would like to meet up please text me on my above phone number.
Now that I think about it, going in cold may be an advantage. Winging it sometimes proves fruitful.
I have not even signed up yet. Nothing like doing a walk-in. I will be in the vendor area Thursday. See you there at the NWCDC 2018 Conference.
