Track 2 (Pre-Event Workshop): Combating the Opioid Epidemic

The objective of this workshop is to provide an overview of state and Federal efforts (programmatic & HIT-related) to mitigate the opioid crisis and to explore state strategies to enhance the value of traditional PDMPs through value-added data integrations that provides a more comprehensive and ‘holistic’ view of patient information and to ensure the data is ‘actionable’ in that it supports shared decision making and is integrated into provider workflows.

Session Takeaways Are:

  • Enhanced understanding of Federal programs to mitigate the opioid crisis and the role of HIT in enabling/supporting these initiatives (including 1115 waivers)
State HIT Leadership
  • Gain an appreciation of different state data integration approaches and how states are leveraging HIEs and existing/additional analytical capacities to expand the scope of PDMPs and to ensure ‘actionable data’ is provided to support shared decision making and provider workflows.
  • Discover available Federal and state resources (such as though the IAP (Innovation Accelerator Program), SIM (State Innovation Model) and outcomes from the HHS Opioid Symposium) and how these can be leveraged to inform your state’s policy-making and strategic HIT planning process.
  • Gain insights into policy and technology barriers to PDMP utilization and value-added data integrations.
Private Sector Partnership
  • Insights into private sector innovations to integrate disparate data sources (SDoH, criminal justice, medical examiners, location-based)
  • Examples of vendor approaches to ‘add value’ to traditional PDMP programs and integrate data into provider/care team workflows
  • Understand state limitations for sharing data and industry initiatives established to share PMP data across state lines
