What is medication synchronization? It’s one of the many benefits of having your workers’ compensation prescriptions filled with IWP, but what does it actually mean?
It’s not uncommon for injured workers to need more than one medication to treat their injuries or illnesses. That’s where you may unexpectedly run into problems. Between prior authorizations, busy doctors’ offices, backed-up phone lines, and dealing with the insurance company, you may end up having to fill your prescriptions at different times—even on different days. You could also be stuck waiting at home for several different deliveries. Not only is that a hassle, but it can interrupt your prescription care.
Medication synchronization can alleviate all of that. Let’s take a look at what it means and what it does.
Med Sync Explained
Simply put, medication synchronization is the process of synchronizing all of your worker’s compensation medications so that your prescriptions are filled together every month. The pharmacy keeps up with authorizations and prescriptions as they arrive from your doctor. The fill history for each prescription is reviewed and medications are scheduled to fill accordingly, ensuring that you do not run out of medications while coordinating them to be filled on the same day. In the case of IWP, this means we fill and ship your prescriptions so that they all arrive together in one convenient package directly at your door.
As the patient, you reap the benefits of medication synchronization. Not only does it ensure continuous prescription care and prevent interruptions in your medication routine, but it also gives you the opportunity to adhere to your dosages. No one wants to risk missing a dose because a prescription isn’t ready, and with medication synchronization through IWP, it’s never a worry.
