Prescription drug mngt vs drug therapy

  1. Thumbs down Prescription drug mngt vs drug therapy
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know what the difference is between prescription drug management and Drug therapy/intensive monitoring. Audit wise, these have two levels of risk.

  2. #2
    Default Drug therapy requiring intensive monitoring for toxicity
    This usually means an IV of a high risk drug, Tkanse, Dilantin, heparin, Magnesium Sulfate, nitro, etc.
    Prescription drug management is usually a schedule drug that is not a "high risk" drug, that can include IM's such as Rocephin.
    Hope this helps
