Big News! The Incident Tracker Is Here! – Update
Written By: Jim Akers

Beginning mid-fall 2020, MUSIC began rolling out the new Workers’ Compensation Incident Tracker in phases. To date, over 60 MUSIC members are using the Tracker to document workers’ compensation incidents. It is not too late to begin using this new tool. In fact, MUSIC encourages all schools to begin using the Incident Tracker beginning with the 2021 – 2022 school year.
The MUSIC Workers’ Compensation Incident Tracker is a cloud-based application that allows a school’s Workers’ Compensation Coordinator to track and manage employee injuries electronically. The tool was developed for MUSIC and its members, and it will be customized for each school district or community college. The tool allows the Workers’ Compensation Coordinator one centralized place to track the school’s open and closed workers’ compensation incidents and claims. It will also help to facilitate communication between the school, the injured employee, the employee’s supervisor, and other key stakeholders.
MUSIC invites you to view a 15-Minute tutorial highlighting the Incident Tracker’s capabilities and how to navigate the interface. Please view this training, and then contact Jim Akers to be given access. As explained in the training video, the Incident Tracker will be housed on the MUSIC website.
Please Note: You can view the training video without logging into the MUSIC website by clicking on the “Web Version” on page 2 of the PDF (click icon). Then, scroll down to the video player and begin viewing.
MUSIC believes this Tracker will help members provide quality care to injured workers while reducing workers’ compensation expenditures. In the coming weeks, Jim will be contacting members to offer assistance and answer questions. In the meantime, if you have questions, please feel free to contact Jim Akers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-800-2151.
