The longer a claim remains active with continuing and progressing treatments, the greater the possibility for longer days of supply, multiple medications, drug interactions, complications from comorbid conditions, multiple prescribers and providers, overall higher risk and in turn, higher costs. This is why a long-term claim is more than just days on a calendar.
Join us for this session, where Tron Emptage, Optum Chief Clinical Officer, will interview Dr. Robert Hall, Optum Corporate Medical Director, and Dr. Kathleen Fink, Optum Associate Medical Director, on their approach to treating chronic, long-term claims. From how they are defined to special considerations when it comes to mental health, medications, and unique clinical concerns. They’ll also discuss the impact of the aging workforce on healthcare and overall productivity.
