The Role of Technology in
Solving the Opioid Crisis
Opioid Crisis Update: Where Are We Now?

 
Date: Wednesday, November 7, 2018
Time: 2:00 p.m. ET
Duration:   1 hour

It’s been about one year after a State of Emergency was declared and the Opioid Commission issued its recommendations. Where are we now?

Join us to discuss the state of the opioid epidemic in healthcare, including what progress has been made since the commission report release and declaration of federal State of Emergency. Aaron Williams, MA, Senior Director of Training and Technical Assistance for Substance Abuse for the National Council for Behavioral Health, will moderate a discussion with clinical experts about the current state of healthcare as it pertains to moving the needle on the opioid epidemic.
 
We'll also hear from Bonni Hopkins, PhD, VP Analytic Innovation and Strategy from Beacon Health Options about how they have used technology to support their efforts.

We will address the following issues:
  • Where should healthcare providers, health systems, health plans and payers go from here?
  • How can providers work differently and perform better in prevention and substance use treatment?
  • What’s the role of medication-assisted treatment (MAT)?
  • How can the newest digital tools impact self-reported opioid use, quality of life and health outcomes? 
  • What is the role of research in shaping technology to help manage healthcare crises? 
  • How can providers best address chronic pain and other behavioral health comorbidities with the best clinical and cost outcomes?
  • What role can predictive modeling play to ensure good opioid stewardship, reduced risk and prevention of dependence?


Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
