Do You Use Software to Automatically Generate Board Forms?

Do You Use Software to Automatically Generate Board Forms?

The next chapter in the modernization of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, the Business Information System (BIS) Project, is well underway. The new system will bring improved and expanded access to real-time claim data, new electronic self-service features for interacting with the Board, and a reduction in the amount of overall paper forms to improve system responsiveness to stakeholder needs – just to name a few features. 

With the new system, the majority of our paper forms will be replaced by eForms, requiring our stakeholders to manually enter and submit data to the Board online.

We know that many of you use computer software to automatically generate our paper forms. This new system will also have the ability to connect with your software to submit data to the Board online through an Application Programming Interface (API), eliminating the need for manual data entry, and offering you significant opportunities to automate and transform your claims processing and workflows.  

If you currently use your own software or a third-party vendor to generate Board forms, we want to hear from you!  

Please share your information technology (IT) team’s contact information with us by May 19, 2020, by contacting  Sharing this information will allow the Board to work with your IT team to test the API before the system goes live in 2022.

Thank you for your continued engagement as we make the new system “Better for Workers and Better for Business.”
