Hunt Valley, MD – M Hayes first launched their Prescription Drug Monitoring (PDM) program in July, providing their nurse case managers the tools and resources for early recognition of and intervention with high risk drugs.
M Hayes demonstrates its understanding of the challenges narcotics place on patient safety and how they can adversely affect outcomes. The strategy involves early intervention by nurse case management when narcotics are prescribed through practice built upon evidence based guidelines. For both emerging and chronic claims, narcotic usage is managed for compliance through this specialized approach.
To meet the needs of this epidemic in worker’s compensation, M Hayes invested in the development of specialized pharmacologic and narcotics management training and tools to empower nurse case managers in their practice. Training, combined with case management practice standards built upon guidelines, prepare the nurses to monitor physician prescribing as well as educate the injured worker. Case management drives better outcomes for narcotics management, while continuing to coordinate return to work and reduce disability duration.
M Hayes PDM program drives proven results for all parties: improved patient safety, improved case outcomes, improved quality of life for injured worker and reduced claim expenses.
