Arrowpoint Capital Claim Executive Ron Mazariegos will participate in a panel discussion at the National Prescription Drug Summit about how two companies employed innovative clinical programs to provide early intervention for claimants at risk for opioid addiction or dependency.
“A Tale of Two Companies” also features Michael Gavin, chief strategy officer, PRIUM; Dave Smith, divisional vice president, risk management, Family Dollar Stores; and Jim Andrews, R.Ph., senior vice president, pharmacy services, Healthcare Solutions. The summit takes place April 2-4 at the Omni Orlando Resort.
Panelists discuss how early intervention and utilization management programs reduced the use of opioids in workers’ compensation claims. The session focuses on clinical practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, functional restoration and opioid weaning to improve outcomes and ensure that injured employees do not continue to receive drugs they don’t need.
