SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 26, 2016) - Mitchell International, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty (P&C) claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced the addition of Adva-Net as a new strategic partner to SmartAdvisor, its portfolio of Workers' Compensation solutions. Adva-Net's specialty solution obtains discounts through both prospective and retrospective applications of its provider agreements, allowing clients to generate significant reductions on pain management bills.
