A new internal study from Liberty Mutual found that nurses assigned to certain workers’ comp claims can lower overall claim costs by 26 percent and future medical costs by 18 percent.

The white paper based on the study also reveals which claims would benefit most by assigning a nurse to them, using a model that leverages 25-30 claim characteristics.
