Leading global provider of occupational health and safety software, Medgate Inc., is pleased to announce Dr. L. Casey Chosewood as the keynote speaker at its annual conference. Dr. Chosewood is the Senior Medical Officer for Total Worker HealthTM Programs at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“We are delighted to have Dr. Chosewood, a noted leader in the occupational health community, educate our attendees on the NIOSH Total Worker Health Program and the critical elements of effective worker health and wellbeing programs,” states Mark Wallace, President of Medgate. “Medgate’s advanced OH&S software and medical case management software products are built to help organizations proactively manage employee health, so this topic could not be more relevant to our customers.”

The Medgate conference, which will be in Atlanta in February 2012, centers on helping organizations streamline the management of occupational health and safety data to gain effective business intelligence and inform decision-making on employee health, safety, and productivity. Promoting worker health and wellbeing has become increasingly imperative within the occupational health community as organizations look to pro-actively promote worker engagement and increase productivity in a lean economy.
