Healthesystems, a workers' compensation pharmacy and ancillary benefits management provider, is pleased to announce that Michael Seise, Pharm. D., M.B.A., will present an educational session at the State Risk and Insurance Management Association (STRIMA) conference on September 19th in Austin, TX. The informative presentation will focus on how the utilization of evidence-based medicine practices can help ensure the appropriate use of opioids in workers’ compensation drug treatments.
Dr. Seise will present this topic during a panel discussion titled Up and Away with Opioids. The educational session will present real world case study examples of injured worker drug treatment regimens involving opioids, including indicators that may signal when treatments are going off course.
The highly anticipated educational seminar will also provide attendees with tools and information on how to incorporate pharmacologic best practices into the claims management process and tips on how to improve engagement with PBMs and other claims stakeholders to ensure the most effective programs are in place.
