Thursday, September 27th was an exciting day for the migraine community due to the announcement of the third FDA-approved therapy for preventative chronic migraine. With two similar preventative medications approved in May and September of this year, this is a very promising time for chronic and episodic migraine sufferers and their care team.
These three preventative chronic migraine therapies are part of a class of biotech drugs that blocks calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), which is involved in the migraine process. The therapies are administered monthly or quarterly via self-injection. All three therapies are proven to reduce the number of monthly migraine days by about two days versus a placebo.
This is also an exciting time for providers and office staff in the neurology and pain management space given that all CGRP inhibitor brands can be prescribed through the all-in-one digital prescribing solution, iAssist. This configurable technology streamlines the processes related to prescribing, improves speed to therapy and adherence, and allows healthcare professionals to spend more time focused on patient care. Through iAssist, providers and their staff can perform ePrescribing and eEnrollment into manufacturer sponsored programs in one workflow and at the point of care. No more missing information, illegible handwriting, or duplicative work!
iAssist simplifies the prescribing process for migraine preventative medications, delivering a better experience for providers and better outcomes for patients.
