From Reactive to Proactive — Combining Clinical and Data Expertise for Optimal Pharmacy Outcomes

In a reactive industry, pharmacists’ expertise and advanced analytics must be leveraged to get ahead of problematic prescriptions.

White Paper Summary

Pharmacy management in workers’ compensation has been reactive by nature. Historically, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) did not have insight into a prescription for a potentially dangerous drug until the injured worker filled the prescription at their local pharmacy. By the time any intervention happened, the patient had likely already taken the drug.

“In the past, we haven’t always known something was happening until a pharmacist processed the prescription. That’s why we managed the clinical side of the industry retrospectively,” said Phil Walls, Chief Clinical Officer, myMatrixx.

Of course, preventing a problem in the first place is always preferable to fixing one that’s already happened.
