Leveraging Rx data to save lives
The treatment of injured patients may present many unique challenges and can often becoming problematic. Medication usage is a critical component of problematic claims because injured patients are frequently prescribed opioid therapy and other risky medications with high potential for serious adverse health effects from inappropriate use. Between 250,000-440,000 people die from medical errors in the U.S. every year (Sipherd, 2018).
Clinical And Safety Evaluation Rx (CASE Rx), is a prescriber clinical intervention program that aims to improve therapeutic outcomes by providing objective and evidence based assessments of prescription drug use by injured patients. This systematic review process ensures a comprehensive assessment. The program’s primary focus is to identify and correct potential medication errors. Additionally, CASE Rx identifies potentially inappropriate or inefficient use of medications. A teleconference with a treating provider and a myMatrixx clinical pharmacist may be utilized to help drive implementation of the CASE Rx interventions.
Lastly, specific recommendations are made for lower cost, yet equally effective alternatives when opportunities exists. The expert clinical team at myMatrixx is equipped to perform CASE Rx reviews for any injury or disease condition from the ubiquitous lower-back injury to more complicated and rare cases such as traumatic brain injury. On every case, the clinical team is dedicated to providing valuable clinical insight and actionable recommendations that have the potential of positively affecting the course of therapy and the patient’s overall condition.
