CHIME Makes Opioid Webinar Free and Open to the Public
ANN ARBOR, MI, July 11, 2018 – The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and the CHIME Opioid Task Force are continuing the campaign to reduce opioid addiction and deaths in the U.S. with a free webinar at noon on July 25. The webinar, “A Journey to Opioid Prescribing Reduction,” is open to anyone who registers through the CHIME website.
Dave Lehr, CIO at Anne Arundel Health System and a member of the CHIME Opioid Task Force, will share the clinical and technological steps the Annapolis, Md.-based system took to reduce opioid prescribing by more than 50 percent across the system. The session will highlight change management challenges and a governance structure for achieving success.
This is the second free and open webinar hosted by CHIME and the CHIME Task Force. The task force was launched in January of 2018 to harness the talent and knowledge of CHIME’s diverse membership to help stem the tide on the opioid epidemic. More information about the task force is available here.
To register for the hourlong webinar, go here. CHIME members and CHIME Foundation members who attend can earn one continuing education credit.
