Data Management

The Data Management Unit is responsible for the collection, data quality and maintenance of workers' compensation claim and injury information. The unit uses the claim data and other information sources to complete a comprehensive annual report on workers' compensation for the Governor and the legislature, along with performing varied research on the workers' compensation system and related topics. Unit staff work directly with insurers and third party administrators to ensure compliance with Montana claim reporting requirements and adherence to national standards.
