(PAOLI, PA, Jan. 3, 2017) In a unique collaboration of three national providers of brain injury rehabilitation, the artwork of patients was featured at a reception held in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 30, 2016 during the National Workers' Compensation and Disability Conference and Expo.

Centre for Neuro Skills, NeuroInternational and ReMed were the three sponsoring organizations. Each company is renowned for offering postacute treatment for people who have endured either a brain injury, stroke, or spinal cord injury.

The reception, "The Art of Brain Injury Rehabilitation," showcased paintings and drawings created by patients of the three companies, and was a touching reminder of the beauty that can be achieved through rehabilitation. Nearly 150 conference participants attended.

“The artwork provided insight into the fact that art gives our patients an opportunity to express real emotions,” said Ann Pereira-Ogan, Director of Marketing and Communications for ReMed. “Displaying their work gave a human element to the journey of healing.”

The event was also a powerful example of collaboration between providers, according to Paul Greenspan, National Director of Payor Relations for Centre for Neuro Skills.

“Joining forces helped conference attendees understand what our industry does,” he said. “We care for those who’ve endured catastrophic injuries, and the reception gave us a chance to discuss patient care with workers’ compensation professionals.”

Those attending the reception and conference included medical directors, regulators, attorneys, and executive decision makers.

“This reception allowed us to have more meaningful conversations with stakeholders as well as develop new relationships with conference attendees,” said Tammy Boyd, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for NeuroInternational. “I think it’s important, moving forward, that we continue to collaborate and demonstrate unity within the postacute industry.”

ReMed headquarters are in Pennsylvania, Centre for Neuro Skills has facilities in California and Texas, and NeuroInternational is based in Florida.

“The event was a great success,” Greenspan noted. “We hope to partner again in an effort to engage with the workers’ compensation industry.”
