WiserTogether implements Opioid Awareness and Education module within their Return to Health Platform
Published: Apr 12, 2018
BOSTON, April 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WiserTogether, through their new "Key Messaging" module, will now include risk warnings on any recommended plan that contains opioids as a treatment option, and make available educational materials about opioid use to its users. The goal is to facilitate awareness of the risks of opioids as a treatment option and encourage patients to have an effective discussion with their healthcare provider about the use of opioids as a pain management option.
WiserTogether Return to Health is a web and mobile solution, which guides people to the most appropriate, effective and often less intrusive treatment options for that individual. Return to Health enables users to make thoughtful and informed decisions about their healthcare by providing easy to understand information and guidance, resulting in lower clinical costs, higher compliance with best practices and faster recovery times.
The platform update with the new "Key Messaging" capability is an important enhancement and capability to the solution. The decision to focus the first use of the messaging capability on opioids is in response to the current opioid epidemic in the United States and the increasing misuse of, and addiction to, opioids. The new risk warnings are intended to provide individuals with current and accurate information about opioid use and its inherent risks so they can make informed decisions about treatment options.
"There is no question that opioid misuse in the U.S. is a dangerous epidemic. By including warnings, and providing our users with accurate information about the risks of prescription opioids, we hope to empower individuals to make the best choices for their individual needs and to encourage conversations between patients and their healthcare providers." Stated Max Kahn, WiserTogether CEO.
