The Pieces Opioid module is an artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) toolset that helps health systems and outpatient providers manage, track, support, and intervene with patients who struggle with opioid addiction or misuse.

The toll of opioid misuse

Almost 450,000 people died from an overdose involving any opioid between 1999–2018, including prescription and illicit opioids. The U.S. opioid overdose epidemic is a major public health crisis, and health systems across the country are trying to develop new approaches, technologies and tools to combat this situation. Apart from the significant toll on patients and their loved ones, hospitals also struggle with readmission rates and excess length of stay associated with opioid-related substance abuse hospitalizations.

Pieces provides insights and guidance

Opioid-related admissions are associated with increased readmission and excess length of stay. Addressing opioid misuse in a systematic way through program improvements and health care data analytics software reduces related hospital readmissions and excess length of stay.

Real-time opioid assessment tool

Pieces Predict substance abuse tracking system reviews all the hospitalization and encounter data in real time and assesses opioid use and opioid misuse, dependence, risks, and prediction for readmissions and avoidable utilization.

Activate approved pathways

Pieces substance abuse software activates institutionally-approved pathways to prevent relapse and reducing readmission rates, monitor key trends, and provide program insights for leaders at the institution overseeing substance abuse pathways and efforts.
