Using Data Analytics to Combat the Opioid Crisis
More than 2 million Americans have become dependent on, or abused prescription pain pills and street drugs, and in 2016 alone, there were more than 40,000 opioid induced overdose deaths. The smart use of data science and analytics has the potential to completely change the trajectory of this crisis. Innovative healthcare systems and government organizations are leveraging advanced data analytics in meaningful ways to identify trends that could reduce the intake of opioids.
The panel will bring together data experts from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Colorado Hospital Association, Intermountain Healthcare and Alteryx for a candid discussion around the positive impact of data analytics on the opioid epidemic and their respective approaches to fighting this crisis.
