Unifying the Opioid Care Network with a comprehensive approach to lowering Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)

The Pieces’ approach is to provide care across the entire patient journey to address the opioid crisis. From advancing clinical care for populations with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), to connecting the network of community care providers, from aggregating disparate data sources into a single usable data hub to effectively tracking and building on successes, our solutions can address every facet of the Opioid Care Network.

Overview

Providing effective care to people with OUD will be an ongoing, multifaceted, and coordinated process. The stages are detailed below.

Select Stage:

Stage 1: Identification

Getting Medical Attention

A person needs medical attention and goes to a hospital, out-patient facility or clinic. They receive the needed intervention to stabilize their immediate condition.


Pieces Product

In a clinical setting, Pieces Predict™ analyzes the patient’s EHR data including any written notes from clinicians and relevant social determinants that could better guide opioid treatment plans. Clinicians can be alerted to approved treatments and sanctioned opioid pathways.

The patient’s data becomes part of a Health Information Exchange to be shared and analyzed for best treatment options in addition to the most effective outcomes. Results are tracked to report progress toward community goals in lowering incidences of OUD and opioid overdose.

Stage 2: Screening / Assessment / Level of Care Determination

Needs Assessment

A person is evaluated and their needs are assessed. An OUD treatment plan is formulated and appropriate community support services are determined.


Pieces Product

All within the EHR, Pieces Predict™ flags patients for being at risk for OUD which allows for prioritization for Screen, Brief Intervention, Referral & Treatment (SBIRT)* processes. Results of screening informs the recommended treatment plan.

*Evidence based practice per SAMHSA and CMS

Results from the SBIRT are shared as part of referrals to the Opioid Care Network providers for increased communication, transparency, and coordination. Detailed reports are provided for all stakeholders.

 

Stage 3: Treatment

Coordinated Care

A person gets referred to the appropriate community resources. With their consent, their treatment plan is shared with the needed support organizations so treatment can be coordinated across multiple care providers. 


Pieces Product

Pieces Connect™ tracks the patient through their particular Opioid Care Network for coordinated care across multiple treatment services and recovery support organizations. Loops are closed on referrals automatically when the person arrives for appointments. This eliminates any need for follow-ups by the case manager.

Tools and referrals are housed on one platform for convenience and increased transparency and coordination between providers.

Stage 4: Management

Case Management

A person utilizes the needed medical, social, and emotional support to address their needs. Their information goes with them electronically from provider to provider. As they move toward recovery, the recovery service options are presented for ongoing support.


Pieces Product

Pieces Connect™ provides cloud-based case management to integrate client care and update client outcomes. Care is coordinated across needs such as transportation, sober living resources, job training, nutritional support, behavioral health, and medical services.

Care is coordinated across multiple treatment facilities to provide realistic and sustainable recovery pathways. Real-time dashboarding of network utilization highlights client interactions and needed capacity.

Ongoing: Policy Improvement

Real-time and Constant Data Analysis

Data can be aggregated from various available sources— EHRs, pharmacy data, treatment facilities—into a Health Information Exchange to form a single data source to analyze progress, performance, and best practices. 


Pieces Product

Data Bridge from Pieces facilitates the data aggregation and integration from disparate sources—no matter their level of sophistication. Our Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will churn data to uncover key insights while our models will continue to learn in order to make even smarter predictions for effective care. Pieces can provide epidemiologic data to designated research scientists and partners to further enhance treatments and patient support.

Real-time, comprehensive dashboards provide crucial insight into success, gaps, and needs for the community. The pathways to recovery are broadened. Lives are saved. Communities are strengthened.

Ongoing: Prevention

Education and Policy Change

One key element to preventing opioid addiction is preventing misuse from the beginning. This can happen through education about the dangers of opioid use and alternative pain management solutions for patients, clinicians, and community providers.


Pieces Product

Pieces Predict™’s analysis will track effectiveness and change over time by leveraging AI insights and real-time indexed and visualized reporting.

Having a comprehensive view of the community is the first step in bridging the current fragmented network of resources and pathways. In addition, access to the full spectrum of data from the initial portal of entry to the Opioid Care Network, to the first referral, to graduation from treatment and beyond provides a holistic picture of how the population progresses through the care continuum. This information will be crucial to drive change and provide much needed resources for the community’s well-being.
