Do Electronic Health Record Prompts Increase Take-Home Naloxone Administration for Emergency Department Patients After an Opioid Overdose?

Addiction 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Background And Aims: Distribution of take-home-naloxone (THN) to emergency department (ED) patients who have survived an opioid overdose could reduce future opioid mortality but is not commonly performed. We examined whether electronic health record (EHR) prompts provided to ED physicians when discharging a patient after an opioid overdose could improve THN distribution.

Design: Interrupted time series analysis to compare the percentage of OD patients who received THN during the 11 months before and after implementation of an EHR prompt on June 18, 2017. Read More

The impact of expanded Medicaid eligibility on access to naloxone.

Addiction 2019 Apr 14. Epub 2019 Apr 14.

Doctoral Candidate in Health Policy, Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Science, 14 Story St. 4th Floor, Cambridge, MA, 02138.

Background And Aims: Federal, state, and local US governments have sought interventions to reduce deaths due to opioid overdoses, by increasing the availability of naloxone. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expanded Medicaid coverage to low-income, childless adults, potentially giving this group financial access to naloxone. The aims of this paper are: 1) to describe the changes in the amount of Medicaid-covered naloxone used between 2009 and 2016 and 2) to quantify the differential change in the amount of dispensed naloxone between states that expanded their Medicaid programs and states that did not.

Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston, MA, USA.

Background And Aims: The availability of alcohol through retail outlets is associated with alcohol-related harms, but few studies have demonstrated a causal relationship.

Laura Bainbridge

Addiction 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.
