WESTERVILLE, Ohio--(Business Wire)--
Progressive Medical, Inc. today announced the availability of
Intervention RX(TM), a program that provides an in-depth clinical
review analysis and report of an injured party's medication usage.

determine appropriate usage and proactively plan for future medication
needs.

   Three levels of service are available including pharmacist review,
review by a physician in conjunction with a pharmacist and an optional
physician to physician consultation. Progressive Medical Intervention
RX works like this:

   --  A physician and/or pharmacist reviews and evaluates an injured
        party's medication utilization.

   --  A detailed findings report is generated within 21 business
        days, offering clinical rationale to support any
        recommendations made by the pharmacist and/or physician.
        Information contained in the report can be upheld in a court
        of law.

   Claims professionals can use the Intervention RX program to guard
against potential utilization review conflicts, drug interactions and
allergies, therapeutic duplication, over-utilization and excessive
duration of use. Used in conjunction with Progressive Medical's Drug
