This session will share lessons learned from the four-year implementation of a pain-care pathway across 45 patient-centered medical home (PCMH) clinics in Oregon. Leveraging the PCMH team, communication, and data to improve pain management and reduce risk, Providence Medical Group was able to realize a 68% reduction of patients on high-dose opioids. After this presentation you will be able to:
- Explain a scalable approach, using CDC guidelines, to implement a pathway to reduce opioid prescribing in primary care
- Discuss three key principles of implementing a pain-care pathway in a team-based care environment
- Develop an opioid care pathway action plan at an organization.
