Making a Difference in the Opioid Epidemic: Data and Analytics

This webinar, part of our 'Analytics in 20' series, takes a look at the issues surrounding the opioid crisis and real-world examples of how analytics can help.

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 informing better treatment protocols, better education and better policy decisions.
