In early 2018, the CHIME Opioid Task Force (OTF) was launched with a simple mission: to turn the tide on the opioid epidemic using the knowledge and expertise of the nation’s health care IT leaders. They created the Opioid Action Center (OAC) to provide the latest knowledge, resources and insights for health care IT leaders on the front lines of the opioid crisis. While our mission is simple, achieving it is not. Opioid/substance use disorder is a complex disease that requires long-term, if not lifetime, care from well-informed clinicians who are supported with easy-to-use and reliable tools.
