SHARING INFORMATION TO FIGHT OPIOID MISUSE
The opioid epidemic continues to grow in America. According to the National Safety Council, the chances of dying from an accidental opioid overdose are now higher than the risk of dying in an automobile accident—1 in 96 vs. 1 in 103.
Fighting a growing addiction epidemic is no easy task. Root causes are complex and multi-layered; hence, approaches to solutions are complex as well. The supply of drugs, the nature of an addictive personality and the prescribing patterns of physicians all contribute.
Moreover, because most opioids are prescription drugs such as oxycodone or Fentanyl, the healthcare system finds itself in the center of the controversy.
Sharing data among physicians, pharmacies and other parties can help identify potential issues such as health care providers with a tendency to over-prescribe opioids, or patients who game the system to get more medication than prescribed.
