Millennium Health to Present at Top National Workers' Compensation Conference

                               

San Diego, CA (WorkersCompensation.com) - Millennium Health, a leading health solutions company, announced today it will lead a session at the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference® & Expo, Dec. 2, from 10 to 11:15 a.m., in New Orleans. ‘Urine Drug Testing: Getting it Right,’ will examine the various urine drug testing (UDT) methods available.

“UDT can be an invaluable clinical tool in the industry’s efforts to help prevent injured workers from misusing or abusing opioids and recovering from their injuries,” said Maria Chianta, Director, Clinical Affairs, Managed Markets Lead, Millennium Health. “But it is crucial for stakeholders to utilize UDT appropriately (i.e. type, frequency), based on their patients’ needs.” 

One of the nation’s largest workers’ compensation insurers worked with its pharmacy benefit manager to integrate clinical testing labs in its opioid-risk management program. Part of the success of the integration was ensuring medical providers followed evidence-based guidelines that recommend UDT for their patients who are prescribed opioids.

Chianta and a leading national insurer will discuss what led to the insurer’s decision to incorporate UDT, how it has improved their monitoring program and strategies for optimal testing practices. 

The conference takes place Nov. 30 – Dec. 2 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Attendees can save $100 off the registration price by using the Promo code SPKK16. For information on the conference, visit www.wcconference.com
