We have conditioned patients not only to expect opioids for pain relief, but to utilize more and more of them, and the addiction is both psychological and physical. To remedy the situation, a lot of policies and practices and behaviors must change around how the health care system approaches pain. But we do not yet have the data and analytics we need to determine what specifically to do at the patient level or the policy level. Download this whitepaper to learn more about the resources available and how we can fix this issue.

According to American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), opioid abuse costs employers approximately $10 billion from absenteeism and presenteeism alone. Despite the breadth and seriousness of this crisis, America’s employers lack a true understanding of how it impacts individuals in the workforce and their families. Castlight developed this first-of-its-kind study on opioid abuse by examining de-identified and anonymous health data reporting from Americans insured by large employers who use our product.

Crime overall is decreasing, but chaotic events such as extreme weather, domestic terrorist attacks, gun violence, and opioid-related emergencies are increasing, requiring highly coordinated response protocols. From raucous inner cities to sleepy suburbs, the scope and nature of these threats demand a new way of thinking and acting– a new, frictionless collaboration among agencies, departments, and vendor partners. This is the next phase of digital age public safety. As more public safety leaders get introduced to sophisticated surveillance and big data technologies, they realize the benefits are within reach.

From raucous inner cities to sleepy suburbs, the scope and nature of these threats demand a new way of thinking and acting — a new, frictionless collaboration among agencies, departments, and vendor partners.1 Ideally, public safety professionals are already fitted with the latest smartphones, laptops, and tablets to receive targeted information about situations, individuals, and locations before they respond. However, when police, fire, EMT, first responders, and even utility companies can communicate and share data via secure channels, the severity and length of incidents may be lessened, and lives can be saved.

Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths. With so many players and data sources, today’s information is partial, fragmented, and often not actionable. We don’t have the data to understand what’s happening, to adjust policy, and to motivate physicians and patients to change their behaviors. Better data and analytics can help develop better treatment protocols, both for pain in the first place and for remediation when patients are becoming dependent on the drugs.

Opioid use grabs headlines when important celebrities overdose. Prince is sadly the most recent. But the problem is persistent and pervasive. The marginally good news is that the number of opioid prescriptions written started to decline last year. Overdose deaths, however, continued to rise. Also in the news have been lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies and distributors for helping to create the astounding oversupply of opioids, but the root causes go deeper. Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharma companies and pharmacies all have played roles. And all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths.

On an average day, 78 Americans die from opioid overdose. Last year’s total was almost 30,000 deaths, roughly two-thirds involving prescription opioids (including Percocet, Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Oxycontin), the rest involving heroin. The United States, with about 5 percent of the global population, consumes 80 percent of the prescription opioids. The problem affects people of all backgrounds and across the socioeconomic spectrum; the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has officially declared it an epidemic.
