A Look at Strategies Employed by the Nation’s Most Advanced Ambulatory Healthcare Organizations

Each year, acute and ambulatory care organizations from around the world take part in CHIME’s “Healthcare’s Most Wired” program, whose goal is to improve healthcare by encouraging the optimal use of information technology. These organizations are surveyed regarding their current adoption levels and strategies across many HIT areas. Based on the responses of 137 advanced ambulatory organizations in the US, this report delves into how organizations are using technology to battle opioid use disorder (OUD).

Healthcare organizations can deploy a variety of tools to combat OUD. Any single tool on its own is rarely sufficient, so most advanced organizations tackle the problem from multiple technology angles, and they report better outcomes as a result. While the Most Wired survey does not capture specific outcomes, it does ask organizations to share which tools they have deployed. The map above highlights the states in which organizations are using the widest variety of tools to combat OUD.

Integrating an EMR’s ePrescribing module into a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) database is one of the most effective ways healthcare organizations can combat OUD. However, this capability remains elusive for many organizations, including some that took part in 2019’s Most Wired survey.
