Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry launched a new Workers’ Compensation Automation and Integration System (WCAIS). The goal of the new system is to increase efficiencies for insurers, employers, and claimants.
According to a press release, the Department of Labor & Industry Secretary Julia Hearthway said, “The new WCAIS system, the first of its kind in the nation, will help Labor & Industry serve the citizens of Pennsylvania more expediently. WCAIS will simplify and automate the workers’ compensation system, enhancing customer service and
streamlining claims handling and resolution.”
Those in the workers’ comp community will have access to all WC matters in one place, including 24/7 availability of online services, faster claims processing and resolution times and improved data management.
