FourStone Health offers two programs to Workers’ Compensation payors: Lab Management Services and Accelerated Recovery Services.
Lab Management Services:
FourStone Health’s Lab Management services are comprised of our Medication Compliance and Pharmacogenomic Testing Programs.
FourStone Health Medication Compliance Program
FourStone Health’s programmatic approach to Lab Management services replaces previously unmanaged physician-initiated testing services that are costly and overutilized. We’ve transformed their outdated and expensive urine drug testing usage into a data-driven medication compliance program where referrals are based on pre-determined clinical triggers. This approach shifts program control back to payor organizations and manages both cost and utilization. The Medication Compliance Program is a scientific, unbiased, predictable and cost-effective way to drive compliance with individual medication regimens, and identifies patients needing continued monitoring or pharmacogenomic testing. Our customizable reports provide actionable intelligence to the payor.
FourStone Health speeds up the patient care cycle, increases compliance, and provides a more definitive picture of each patient’s individual drug use and history.
FourStone Health Pharmacogenomic Testing
Pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing is a critical tool for helping physicians make better individualized prescribing decisions. Again, our data-driven programmatic approach relies on several clinical triggers (including an inconsistent toxicology test result) to identify patients who would immediately benefit from this one-time test.
Pharmacogenomics enables providers to prescribe the right medication at the right dose for the right patient. The test also identifies medications that may be harmful or toxic and should be avoided or discontinued.
Precision medicine is the new standard of care. It is the future of medicine—a future that is available now for Workers’ Compensation patients.
Accelerated Recovery Services
FourStone Health’s Accelerated Recovery services are comprised of our Pharmacogenomic Testing and Wearable Therapeutic Brace programs. These programs are both designed for injured workers who have been approved for surgeries that typically have a lengthy rehabilitation and recovery duration.
Pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing is a critical tool for helping physicians make better individualized prescribing decisions. Our data-driven programmatic approach identifies patients who have been approved for an upcoming surgery. By timing this one-time genetic test prior to surgery, an injured worker and their physician will have the confidence that the appropriate medication will be prescribed upon discharge. This eliminates adverse drug reactions (ADR) and helps speed recovery and return-to-work.
FourStone Health is the exclusive distributor in the Workers’ Compensation industry for Gladiator Therapeutics Wearable Braces and Devices. Gladiator Therapeutics uses patented technology to accelerate post-surgical healing. While any surgical patient could benefit from wearing this therapeutic brace, FourStone Health focuses on those surgeries that typically lead to extended recovery times and/or pain management programs for Workers’ Compensation patients (shoulder, spine, knee, hip). Many of these patients also benefit from wearing the brace prior to surgery as part of their pre-conditioning program.
The unique benefits of Gladiator braces include:
- Fully portable, comfortable, can be worn during normal physical activity
- No power source required
- Can be used 24/7 without compromising skin integrity
- Patented and Proprietary Technology
