1 Employer RESUME LEE STEVEN GLASS, MD, JD PRESENT EMPLOYMENT April, 1998 to present: Employed as Associate Medical Director for the State of Washington s Department of Labor and Industries. Duties I function as an executive-level policy advisor for cost-effective, quality health care and prevention services for the workers and employers of the State of Washington. I provide policy development guidance to the department s utilization review program, which is responsible for accurately reviewing, assessing, and making recommendations upon an average of sixty surgical requests per day. I am responsible for working with the department s utilization review vendor to develop policies regarding all aspects of the utilization review process in which the vendor is involved. I assist and advise all divisions of the Department of Labor and Industries on issues involving medical diagnosis and treatment, occupational health and safety, health care policy, crime victim s compensation policy, and related legal and legislative issues. I develop and implement policies, standards, positions, regulations, laws, projects and programs on a wide range of issues, state and nationwide, such as the prevention of long term disability. I coordinate, consult on and develop medical policy related to causality, appropriateness of medical care, impairment rating, disability prevention and other policy areas related to the delivery of quality medical care to injured and ill workers. I coordinate and consult on policy matters related to billing policy and fee schedules, provider review and profiling, utilization review, statutory and regulatory review, review of emerging technologies, and evaluation of controversial or experimental clinical practices. I consult on and direct activities related to provider education and relations. I act to insure that care provided to injured and ill workers meets the unique statutory and regulatory requirements governing the workers compensation system. I seek to resolve disputes that may arise between the Department of Labor and Industries and injured workers or their physicians regarding medical issues in workers compensation cases. I help to create evidence-based and consensus treatment guidelines. I consult on and develop policy related to occupational safety and health in the workplace, and the prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses. I assist the Medical Director, the Director of the Department of Labor and Industries and other agency executives by serving in liaison roles with the Washington State Medical Association, business, labor, the legislature, and other key external stakeholders.

I served on that committee in 2008 and In 2010 I was re-appointed to a three-ear term, ending in October, Member, APS/ACP Low Back Pain Guideline Project ( ) In May 2005, I was appointed to be a member of a joint project of the American Pain Society and the American College of Physicians.

My responsibilities include the review and analysis of high-grade medical literature

The director of the project is Roger Chou, MD, of the Evidence-based Practice Center at Oregon Health Sciences University. 3.

ISBN ), this text provides physicians who are treating injured workers with evidence-based and consensus recommendations regarding methods of assessment and treatment that are most likely to return injured workers to improved health and increased function as effectively and as efficiently as possible.

Nationally, that system is now used not only for Medicare payments, but for reimbursement of most physician services. CPT codes are used to identify medical services that have been performed. The relative value of each such code and, by extension, each such service is established and updated by the AMA s Relative Value System Update Committee, commonly abbreviated RUC. The RUC is composed, in substantial part, of representatives of approximately twenty-four areas of medical specialty. The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine represents one specialty area, and has designated me its representative to the RUC. 9.
