Workers Compensation

Latest News

The latest update on the Division’s digitization project is now online. This update discusses the use of an online "availability polling" tool for scheduling purposes. Online scheduling tools can be used quickly and easily to find a date and time to meet with multiple people. An example of an online schedule tool is "Doodle." We are looking into our system to have a Doodle-like tool to assist with scheduling. The DigiComp Team will continue to provide monthly updates of the status of our project, and details regarding the new system. The next topic that we will address is our upcoming focus group meetings involving the various workers compensation units.
