Opioid Rapid Cycle Research

REACHnet led a rapid cycle project titled “Using PCORnet to Monitor Provider and Patient Risk Factors Related to the Opioid Epidemic” to create an opioid surveillance database and address current gaps in timely access to clinical data necessary for surveillance, prevention, and intervention. The database includes information from electronic health records, insurance claims, state information about prescription medicines, results of drug tests, and information about people’s cause of death. Results and publications are available on the study page on PCORI’s website.
