The Opioid epidemic in America stems in part from a chronic pain issue gone unnoticed and undertreated in the last decade. Identifying those patients with chronic pain can be difficult as no one specific diagnosis code exists to unmask it. AMI has been identifying these patients for a decade and has a proven record of reducing Opioid use among chronic pain patients.
The Institute of Medicine calculates the total cost of treatment, lost productivity, disability payments and legal fees related to chronic pain is greater than the total cost of medical care for patients with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Cancer and AIDS.
Chronic pain is a hidden co-morbidity not captured by conventional data analytics and may be the invisible root cause of many other subsequent medical issues.
AMI’s integrated chronic pain program can create efficiencies, savings and better overall wellness of patients. What does AMI do that is different from other providers?
- AMI identifies the patients in your risk pool that suffer from chronic pain utilizing proprietary algorithms.
- Works with patients directly to develop unique patient-centric integrated treatment plans.
- Integrates low-cost, high patient satisfaction, complementary alternative medicine (CAM) treatments into the conventional medical case management of high-risk employees.
