IT-Enabled Strategies to Help Fight the Opioid Crisis
August 16, 2018, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jackson Tate, Director of Opioid Research, and Alex McIntosh, Senior Analyst, KLAS. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, every day, more than 115 people in the United States die after overdosing on opioids. As opioid management has become a focus of federal and state governments, the pressure to control overprescribing, as well as patient misuse, has fallen on the shoulders of health systems. Come learn what early findings KLAS has uncovered on opioid control and management as Jackson and Alex provide insight into what strategies health systems are deploying and what information systems are helping. This teleconference is part of the Clinical Decision Support Collaborative.
