The current opioid crisis has been called the worst drug crisis in American history, reaching every corner of society. As the nation’s frontline defense against this crisis, it can feel overwhelming and unmanageable to human service providers. Now, more than ever, health IT must become a critical part of your arsenal to fight the opioid crisis. Although technology alone cannot stop the spread of the crisis, it can warn of potential drug misuse and diversion; inform clinical decisions; protect individuals at risk and improve provider workflows. In doing so, you can significantly reduce the impact of the opioid crisis in your community.
Netsmart put together a list of tangible actions organizations can take to leverage health care information technology (HIT) to bring positive change to the community and beyond. If your EHR can’t do these things today, it’s already a step behind. Use this checklist to ensure you’re optimizing technology to impact the opioid crisis.
