This project will develop and demonstrate a set of standard performance measures for workers' compensation managed care organizations. Use of standard performance measures will improve the quality of care to injured workers by providing a basis for purchasers, consumers, and policy-makers to compare workers' compensation managed care organizations' quality through standard data and information reports.
