Using Technology to Combat the Opioid Epidemic

Feb 20 2020 - 12:00pm

The human and financial tolls of the opioid epidemic are staggering. Health information technology — from mobile apps and electronic health records, to telehealth and artificial intelligence — is pivotal in our response to this crisis.  

Join us for a discussion about evidence-based technologies being used to address opioid use disorder. Learn how researchers at the Center for Health Information and Research in the College of Health Solutions are partnering with patients, community providers, public safety officials, policy-makers and colleagues of diverse disciplines to combat the opioid epidemic and improve the health of all Arizonans.
