RTW Strategies: Washington’s COHE Model

Provide evidence of effectiveness of Washington COHE experience

A key step in convincing key stakeholders to consider adopting/adapting COHE strategies would be to provide evidence of improvements in quality, cost savings, and return to work outcomes. For example, the Washington State labor agency estimates a savings of $3,175 per claim and 20% fewer days away from work for workers served by COHE providers compared to non-COHE providers. http://www.lni.wa.gov/Main/AboutLNI/Legislature/PDFs/Reports/2016/ImpMPNexpCOHE.pdf
