Mitchell Workers’ Compensation Solutions, a division of Mitchell International, is a leading provider of workers’ compensation cost-containment technologies and services. Insurance payers, self insured companies, third-party administrators, and managed care organizations rely on Mitchell’s medical bill review platform, the SmartAdvisor™ Software Suite, to improve their medical cost savings results.
According to Nina Smith-Garmon, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mitchell Workers’ Compensation Solutions Division, “Our investment in the DataCare platform is part of our ongoing commitment to utilize advanced technology to help clients manage their medical expenses.”

- Role-based dashboards
- Real-time reports
- Access to full medical history

Jackie Payne, Senior Director, Managed Care Operations, says, “We are proud to offer our customers best-in-class solutions.
