About the webinar

We know that transforming data into insights could change the course of the opioid epidemic. But the data we need is typically hard to act on; it’s siloed, in fragmented formats and/or too large to deal with.

We’ll take a fresh look at the issues that continue to intensify the opioid crisis and share real-life examples of analytics improving treatment protocols, educating the public and informing policy.
