Tron Emptage

As Chief Clinical Officer, Tron Emptage oversees our comprehensive suite of clinical programs designed to help payers gain more control over medical costs to achieve better outcomes for injured workers. Tron leverages two decades of pharmacy and managed care experience to develop and manage key program components, such as medication plans and formularies, utilization reviews, physician outreach, clinical intervention and pharmacist and nursing support. The use of these programs by our customers ensures injured workers receive the right therapy at the right time.

Tron has played instrumental roles in developing a number of innovative clinical initiatives, including our patent-pending data analytics model, our clinical oversight programs and our urine drug monitoring program – further helping the company transform the way workers’ compensation payers manage claims and contain costs through utilization programs. He shares his experiences as a frequent speaker at leading industry conferences and as author of several white papers and journal articles on topics ranging from prescription drug misuse to pharmacy management strategies.

Tron is a registered pharmacist licensed in the state of Ohio. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from The Ohio State University and a Master of Arts degree from Ashland University.
