How NC health systems and care providers are uniting to fight the opioid crisis

As North Carolina communities continue to face the growing challenges presented by the opioid epidemic, North Carolina health systems are striving to adopt an ecosystem approach to reduce opioid misuse, abuse, and overdose deaths. The Coalition for Model Opioids Practices in Health Systems, a partnership between NCHA and the NC Department of Health and Human Services, has been working to frame the areas of focus that North Carolina health systems must prioritize as they develop best practices and tools to combat the ongoing crisis. Coalition members include representatives from 130 hospitals in North Carolina, professional societies, and government agencies that are working to address the epidemic at a system level. Read more about the coalition’s work in the May/June issue of the NC Medical Journal in an article co-authored by Larry Greenblatt, MD, Professor of Medicine and Community and Family Medicine at Duke University, and Jai Kumar, NCHA’s Director of Planning and Development.
