Opioids are an important part of modern medicine that have improved the quality of life for millions of people. However, we find ourselves amidst an opioid epidemic that continues to escalate. Studies show that 11.5 million people misused prescription opioids1, with economic costs reaching $504 billion2.
In this webinar, join us to learn how to:
Identify and address the significant connection between behavioral health and the misuse of opioids
Leverage evidenced-based analytics to identify health improvement opportunities for members whose pain management may be at variance with the CDC guidelines for opioid use and may be putting them at risk
Actively coordinate communication between providers and patients around pain management and opioid use risks
Deploy targeted care management services stratified for your population at high, moderate or low risk for opioid related events
