It’s estimated that one in ten health care workers have abused opioids at some point in their career.  There is an immediate, critical need for hospitals and health systems to identify and implement drug diversion technology as the opioid crisis becomes more serious and pervasive every day. 

Join Omnicell, Kit Check, and leading health system pharmacy veterans for this in-depth discussion on how technology and machine learning are driving better visibility, helping health systems to identify, investigate, prevent and support diversion activity. Topics include:

  • Best practices in diversion detection and prevention 
  • Leveraging machine-learning to identify patterns and anomalous behavior
  • Streamlining investigations and support initiatives
