Posted On: Aug. 7, 2013 12:00 AM CST

Ameritox Ltd., a Baltimore-based pain medication monitoring company, has acquired Prium, a leading provider of medical cost management services serving the worker's compensation market.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Both companies will continue to function as separate entities, Ameritox announced in a statement Tuesday.

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to bring the unique capabilities of these two great companies together,” Ameritox CEO Scott Walton said in the statement.

“Employers are increasingly aware and concerned about the quality-of-life issues and financial ramifications that the epidemic of prescription drug abuse and misuse are having on their employees, particularly the injured worker. Just as Ameritox pioneered the market for prescription drug monitoring, PRIUM has pioneered a unique set of services on the medical management side of the equation,” Mr. Walton said.
