The Role in Combating the Opioid Crisis

The opioid crisis remains a serious concern. PatientVerifi’s role in ensuring that prescriptions for controlled substances reach the right patients contributes significantly to the fight against opioid abuse.

Between September 2019 and February 2021, patients who were treated remotely for opioid-use disorder had 33% lower adjusted odds of a fatal overdose than those without medication treatment, according to a 2023 study in JAMA Psychiatry.
