With the growing national epidemic in opioid abuse, clinicians find utilization of integrated clinical decision support solutions becoming a key strategy in identifying the need for clinical intervention and care coordination. While mandatory look up laws in some states have seen an increase in usage of prescription drug monitoring programs, many patients do not have any data present in these databases. A collaboration of state agencies, providers and commercial vendors in South Carolina has found a novel way of utilizing payer policy, interoperability and efficient data access to combat the opioid epidemic in the state. This strategy is a testament to information technologies capabilities to improve processes and decision support and is generating impressive early results.
