A Personalized Approach to High-MED Opioid Management

Successful opioid management includes a tailored strategy that takes into account:

  • Each injured worker’s current medication regimen
  • The patient’s medical history and unique circumstances
  • Evidence-based treatment guidelines

The Mitchell Pharmacy Solutions personalized approach to managing a high-MED population led to 25% decrease in average daily MED levels over a 24-month period. This two-pronged approach included setting customized MED levels per patient and adding greater controls for higher risk patients.
