Modern Medical’s Opioid Defense Manager Sees Measureable Results in Just 12 Months.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Modern Medical, a Healthcare Solutions company, today announced outcomes for its Opioid Defense Manager™ (ODM) program. Launched in November 2012, ODM is Modern Medical’s managed care program to stop the rising opioid abuse in the workers’ compensation industry by reducing inappropriate drug use and still maintaining the necessary balance to provide pain relief for the claimant.

"An integrated care approach of educating the claimant with a team of clinical experts monitoring the claimant’s ongoing progress through Opioid Progress Reports is the key to the success we are seeing with ODM. The case studies we are presenting are definitive proof of how we are changing the lives of claimants while saving costs for the employers," states Robyn Satterfield, Pharm. D., Director of Clinical Services for Modern Medical.

Seventy percent of physicians are responding to Modern Medical’s nurse interventions. Opioid utilization is trending at a 46% decrease for claimants enrolled in ODM. This decrease in utilization is lowering the payers’ opioid medication costs by 19%. Successful ODM case study synopses show results from weaning claimants off of opioids to extreme examples of claimants “doctor shopping” for opioid medications.

Opioids are the most common drugs prescribed in workers’ compensation and linked to the highest rate of prescription abuse. Chronic use of opioids can lead to higher medical costs, prolonged disability and unintentional harm.
