Improving Workers' Compensation Outcomes at Walmart
My colleagues Likhitha Devireddy, David Dunn, and I were tasked with analyzing Walmart's workers' compensation data to determine best practices for getting employees back to full health. To accomplish this, we analyzed a large dataset of workers' compensation data using SAS.
After analyzing the claims, we found a handful of decision points in Walmart's workers' compensation process where better decisions would produce better outcomes. Some of these decisions were already part of standard practices, but some were not. One of our discovered optimal decisions even contradicted standard industry practices. Additionally, we identified segments of claimants where different decisions led to different outcomes.
