Overview

The opioid epidemic has gained national attention, and there has been increasing pressure on hospitals, health systems and health plans to effectively tackle this complex issue. Chronic pain affects a large number of Americans, and ineffective practices related to prescribing guidelines, prescription monitoring and provider education have led to an increase in opioid abuse/harm. hospitals, health systems and health plans must engage in efficient organizational strategies, enhanced provider education and safer prescription practices to effectively tackle the rise in opioid abuse.

We have created a high-level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives from hospitals, health systems and health plans who will share their perspectives, valuable insights and expertise on how to be best equipped for the rapidly evolving landscape of Opioid Management. Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies that have been deployed to address the challenges presented by the current healthcare environment impacting hospitals, health systems and health plans in effectively managing opioid abuse/harm. This exclusive event targets senior level executives in order to maximize educational and networking opportunities.
