According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, approximately 2.1 million Americans suffered from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers in 2012. Opioid pain relievers cost insurance companies over $72.5 billion annually in health-care cost deaths from this drug category have increased five-fold between 1999 and 2010.
FDA-approved topical gels contain the pain relief that patients are looking for - with none of the addiction caused by orally-taken opioids. With these products, there is minimal absorption rate (< 5%) into the blood and zero liver metabolization. Patients can be active, work, drive, and think straight when using insurance-approved topicals! Our specialty pharmacy partner will courier FDA-approved topical medications that treat for pain, inflammation, migraine, scars - and even metabolic supplements - directly to a patient's front door!
Workers Compensation Pharmacy.
Until recently, if a patient wanted to fill a Workers Compensation prescription in the state of Texas, they would have to go to a big box pharmacy (such as Walgreens), due to physicians not being able to dispense medication in office. With over 95,000 Workers Comp cases annually (each case averaging 3-5 prescriptions per month), Texas physicians have been losing revenue opportunities in a $301+ million/year industry.
Our Workers Comp mail-order pharmacy partner maintains a 93% collection rate and offers 2-day FedEx (signature required) shipping to patients, affording them the convenience of not having to stand in line at a pharmacy. Patients are also able to call during normal business hours (Monday - Friday) and speak with a pharmacist to answer any questions the patient may have about their prescriptions.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, atleast 78 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. They have described the US as being in an epidemic due to the number of emergency room visits caused by pain medication overdoses. It is now more important than ever to proactively choose to implement toxicology testing.
While there are many different solutions for monitoring and toxicology testing, there has never been an option that truly strives to create a long-lasting partnership that puts a physician's practice first to increase revenue, maximize efficiency, and maintain the highest of testing standards at 68 test panels. Until now.
Over 1 million patients die each year from adverse drug reactions in the United States. For physicians, dosing and prescribing medication for their patients has always been both an art and a form of trial and error. Now, developments in pharmacogenomics testing (PGX) have made finding the right dose and the right medication a science for patients.
Approximately 92% of all medications are metabolized through the CYP450 enzyme system, which is a group of proteins that help the body metabolize a wide variety of foreign compounds and are particularly important with regards to drug interaction. Using an oral swab from the patient, PGX testing maps the CYP450 system and 14 alleles. This enables a physician to choose and tailor medication specifically for their patient's genetic profile.
Many factors affect how good patients feel and how well their minds and bodies function. How their bodies utilize and process nutrients and vitamins, how well their vital organs function, and whether or not they over-produce or under-produce various biochemicals play a major role in their overall wellness. By measuring the levels of various nutrients and biochemicals in blood, physicians can detect a number of deficiencies and excesses that can have a huge impact on their patient’s well-being. Some of the chemicals measured may also predispose patients to various diseases, for example cholesterol levels and risk of cardiovascular disease.
Our blood wellness testing measures the levels of many chemicals in the hematology and can direct physicians to treat any deficiencies or excesses, as well as detect medical conditions that need treatment. By using the information taken from up to 88 tests, physicians can take actions to correct imbalances and treat conditions to improve the health and wellness of their patients.
