Injured Workers’ Pharmacy (IWP), is pleased to announce the release of their first industry drug trends report, Work Comp Pharmacy: A Front Line Perspective.
As a national workers compensation specialty pharmacy, IWP’s report outlines the current trends being seen in the industry by bringing more attention to the patient and how change can impact them and their decisions regarding medication. “We call ourselves ‘the patient advocate pharmacy,’ so we decided to issue a report that focuses less on the drugs themselves and more on how greater involvement of clinical pharmacists on behalf of patients can impact treatment and prescribing patterns," states Ken Martino, IWP, CEO.
Committed to understanding and navigating all trends in the workers’ compensation industry, the report, unlike other drug trend reports also highlights how trends in medication therapy management and legislative measures are driving significant change.
Martino, continues, “At IWP, the patient is at the heart of everything we do. Our number one focus is always getting workers’ compensation patients the care and treatment they need to get better and get back to a productive life. That’s why, as we present and analyze the current industry topics, we do so with consideration of their impact on the patient.”
IWP, a portfolio company of affiliates of ACON Investments, L.L.C. based in Washington, DC, is a specialty home delivery pharmacy serving patients injured in accidents covered by Property Casualty insurance. Fully licensed in 50 states, IWP enhances patient access and alleviates administrative and financial burdens by shipping medications directly to the patient and managing complex reimbursement processes.
