The Growing Crisis and Championing Change
Our industry stands at a pivotal moment – one unrelated to national elections or payment models or new competitors. Opioid abuse has swept across the country, flooding hospitals and health systems emergency departments with those suffering from addiction and the effects of overdose. Patients, communities, and provider organizations are experiencing devastating consequences of the opioid epidemic on a daily basis. Alliance Interventional’s physicians and executives have built a comprehensive and proactive opioid response strategy that we implement daily in our national network of pain management clinics and ambulatory surgical centers. We have invested in helping our clinicians understand when to prescribe opioids and how to do it safely.
Philosophically, our pain management centers promote minimally invasive procedures and complementary therapies, which are sometimes combined with conservative dispensing of pain medications. Our intent is to offer our best practices and data-driven framework to support all medical professionals to successfully deploy opioid response measures.
