)-- Paradigm Management Services, LLC., the nation’s leading provider of workers compensation catastrophic and complex medical management services and Ameritox, the leading provider of pain prescription monitoring for providers caring for chronic pain patients announced a unique partnership to optimize outcomes for individuals with chronic pain.
Ameritox’s proprietary algorithm, RxGuardian, will enable Paradigm Management Services to work with the attending physician to measure compliance with prescription regimens and develop protocols for the chronic pain cases they manage. RxGuardian combines patients’ demographics with prescription dose and laboratory results. This information is utilized to determine normalized values for a patient. RxGuardian then compares these normalized values to expected prescription-specific ranges to measure compliance. Ameritox provides the physician with a lab report that identifies these normalized values and expected ranges, and flags results that are inconsistent. This data helps in identifying non-compliance, including absence of prescriptions and supplementation.
“We are delighted to partner with Ameritox for this service,” said Paradigm’s Chief Executive Officer, Robert Fahlman. “as it will provide us an additional management tool for this very complex clinical population. Furthermore, we will be able to work with our customers and treating physicians to ensure appropriate medication protocols are followed.”
“Paradigm is a leader in the field of chronic pain management and we believe this partnership will benefit the person living with chronic pain.” stated Ancelmo Lopes, Chief Executive Officer of Ameritox.
