In a new Q&A with Risk & Insurance Magazine, myMatrixx Vice President of Product Development, Hollie Lamboy, shared her thoughts on the important role that electronic prescribing plays in improving outcomes and controlling costs for injured workers. Lamboy stresses in the piece that this is particularly true regarding controlled substances, such as opioids, where e-prescriptions allow for effective communication between patients, physicians, pharmacies and workers’ comp stakeholders.
With e-prescriptions, messages such as previous prescriptions can be communicated directly at the point of care instead of after the fact. This can result in better health outcomes for injured patients by lowering the risk for abuse while also helping to curb costs by avoiding unnecessary prescriptions.
