PDMP: Helping Ensure Safety in Prescribing

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 11/16/21 5:07 PM

 

Providers seek to better control controlled substances

 

Synthetic opioids were developed with the best of intentions — to harness the well-known sedative and pain-relieving qualities of opium without the harmful side effects. And, for the better part of a century, they have largely done that, as long as physicians prescribed them appropriately and patients carefully followed their doctors’ orders.

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 11/4/21 11:44 AM

Delivering care at a distance has a long, successful record

Telephones, television, and teleportation were once in the realm of science fiction. OK, teleportation still is. But many things once thought impossible are part of everyday life. Why should telehealth be different?

Well, it isn’t. The future surely holds many advanced telehealth applications, but the idea of delivering care from afar — tēle is Greek for “far” — is an old one.
