At the heart of every workers' compensation claim is an injured worker who is seeking the benefits that will help them return to work quickly and without issue. Over the past few years, we've seen several trends within work comp aimed at improving patient care and lowering overall costs.
In IWP's newest report Work Comp Pharmacy: A Front Line Perspective, we share insight into the challenges and opportunities within workers' compensation and pharmacy care management today and in the future.
As a specialized workers' compensation pharmacy with a comprehensive approach to caring for injured workers, we're sharing trends we've seen in:
- Medication therapy management, including decrease in the utilization of narcotics and increase in non-narcotic analgesics
- Legislative highlights involving opioid fill limits, prescribing guidelines and the expansion of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMP)
- Measures taken to minimize the risk of overdose and abuse, while effectively treating pain and working towards recovery
Through this report, you'll notice one commonality: the patient. IWP is changing the face of work comp pharmacy care and we're happy to share our information along the way.
