by Optum for Workers' Compensation | Aug 29, 2017
WHAT: Putting a face on the medication trends shaping workers’ compensation

While every claim has a unique story, there are often common clinical and industry trends that may impact the outcome of a claimant’s progress. This session will review three workers’ compensation case studies, their trends and challenges. From long-term opioid use and high morphine equivalency levels to comorbid conditions and the age of the claimant, you’ll discover WHY each challenge needs to be considered as decisions are made. You’ll also learn WHAT can be done throughout the claim to ensure the claimant receives the right medication at the right time, in the right dose and for the right duration. Understanding the medication trends that influence cost and utilization can help ensure optimal outcomes clinically and financially.
