Prime has been a leader on controlled substances misuse for more than a decade. Our program combines existing and new services to help address this national epidemic.
Model reduces risk
Opioid misuse and over-prescription continues to be a major issue in the U.S. Our experience taught us that a multi-pronged model is the most effective way to fight this epidemic.
In addition to our current controlled substance efforts, we created a controlled substance management program. One of the highlights is a controlled substance score. It identifies people at risk of controlled substance misuse through predictive modeling.
The score is calculated by evaluating the:
- Number of unique controlled substance claims
- Total unique pharmacies and prescribers
- Utilization rate over time
This score then is used with our GuidedHealth® rules engine, which identifies drug therapy opportunities and encourages doctors to target and prioritize interventions.
