Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the big kickoff of the National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference here in Fabulous Las Vegas!
We start off with Healthesystems’ preview of their new suite of data visualization tools that aim to provide payers with actionable intelligence on the most critical drug therapy risks, including opioid abuse, misuse and diversion, as well as the excessive costs associated with physician dispensing and repackaged drugs.
Also in the news today is Modern Medical’s announcement that e-Prescribing will be available for their workers’ comp services clients and their claimants. The program is integrated with the claimant’s formulary and medication history, offers physicians instant access at the point of care, and seeks to reduce the amount of prior authorization requests to adjusters.
We’re looking forward to a great conference, and be sure to follow @Work_Comp_Wire on Twitter for our realtime updates!
