Cordant Partners with MC Innovations


Denver—MC Innovations, a leading provider of total program management and consulting services, announces its partnership with Cordant Health Solutions™, a provider of innovative tools for chronic pain patients through its uniquely integrated drug testing programs, as its preferred solution for the management of injured workers’ medication compliance.

Medication monitoring has become a useful tool to workers’ compensation payers, helping them understand injured workers’ compliance with prescription drug treatment plans. Additionally, drug monitoring is necessary to identify potential safety problems to the injured worker by identifying potential drug-to-drug interactions or illicit drug use. MC Innovations recognized that it needed a unified and consistent approach for drug testing for one of its self-insured state programs.

“Analysis revealed that drug testing was already happening, it was just irregular in frequency and the costs were surprising,” said Penny Gough, president of MC Innovations. “Our unified approach and solution arms adjusters and case managers with consistent, timely and easily understandable reports that assist in the management of claims.”

“We look forward to collaborating with MC Innovations to increase the rate of returning injured workers to work. Our program not only helps healthcare providers identify appropriate treatment, it also monitors injured workers’ compliance with their prescription treatment plan,” said Susan Sommer, president and CEO of Cordant. “We’ve seen 32 percent of injured workers showed improved medication compliance after their initial test with Cordant.”
