Dr. Teresa Bartlett
Senior Vice President of Medical Quality, Sedgwick Dr. Teresa Bartlett, MD, is Senior Vice President and Medical Director with Sedgwick. She began her business career by joining a large automotive manufacturer and spent 20 years managing large self-insured, multi-state workers' compensation programs as well as the WSIB Canadian program. During her career, Dr. Bartlett has won the Corporate Health Achievement Award from ACOEM for the development and implementation of a best practice clinical model, was named recipient of the Crain's Detroit Business 2008 Health Care Hero Award for an innovative back pain reduction program, and was featured on NBC local news for development of a large-scale medical preparedness plan. More recently, she was named one of Business Insurance's Women to Watch.

"I feel like the effort now in medicine is more to treat the addiction problem than to prevent it," said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, senior vice president of medical quality at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc. in Troy, Michigan.
Dr. Bartlett noted that while buprenorphine blunts the euphoric "high" that opioid users can experience, it does not stop a person's craving for that "high." "This could lead to actually more potential for overdose because they may take more and more of the drug to try to attain the high," she said.

"Hopefully, it will cause physicians to pause and consider their actions before prescribing in the future," said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, Troy, Michigan-based senior vice president and medical director at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc.

"They went through all this effort, they passed this major legislation, or so they thought, and really when you think about the problem of opioids, that's in my opinion a really minimal impact," said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, senior vice president of medical quality at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc. in Troy, Michigan.

"Physicians are the most critical component to a successful health care experience," said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, Troy, Michigan-based senior vice president and medical director of Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc.
Payers also dislike when physicians engage in aggressive or unnecessary medical testing, and when they render medical care outside evidence-based guidelines without clearly documenting why, Dr. Bartlett said. Meanwhile, submitting untimely utilization review responses or not conveying the covered conditions within a claim are examples of payer behaviors that can lead to contentious relationships with physicians, she added. Dr. Bartlett, Ms. Wagner and other experts in attendance at the 2015 California Workers' Compensation & Risk Conference in Dana Point, California, earlier this month stressed that effective communication requires participation from both parties. Having physicians tour the worksite provides a greater understanding of workers' functional requirements, Dr. Bartlett said, adding that supplying pictures, videos and job descriptions is also helpful. At Sedgwick, "there is a higher degree of scrutiny and UR" with physicians who don't obtain good claim and medical outcomes, Dr. Bartlett said. "Doctors definitely need to know they are being watched and held accountable." It is the workers comp industry's responsibility to drive the use of evidence-based care, which is "based on the latest research and ensures physicians are staying current with new technology and medical practice," she added.
