Opioid Stewardship Toolkit

Americans are more likely to die from an opioid overdose than they are in a motor vehicle accident, according to a 2019 report by the National Safety Council. Although these therapies have a legitimate role in pain management, responsible stewardship is crucial to ensure prescribing practices that minimize misuse. MEDITECH's Opioid Stewardship Toolkit addresses this top healthcare priority by helping your care teams to reduce opioid-related harm. 

Designed using Expanse technology, our evidence-based toolkit aligns with all 12 CDC recommendations for chronic pain management. Features that set our toolkit apart from — and above — the rest include:



In addition, our toolkit includes advanced clinical decision support, real-time surveillance, and registry patient monitoring, as well as:


  • On-demand video education

  • Outcomes-centered workflow guide

  • Setup guidance

  • Embedded standard content

  • Decision log

  • Change log

  • Reference/supporting information
