hc1.com to Demonstrate Groundbreaking Live National Opioid Dashboard at AWS re:Invent 2017

Advanced Cloud Platform Correlates Billions of Data Points Predicting Areas of Need to Decrease Misuse and Addiction

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, hc1.com announced its hc1 Opioid Dashboard, a revolutionary cloud-based information service that applies artificial intelligence to a vast array of datasets to deliver national insights aimed at decreasing opioid misuse, abuse, and addiction. The hc1 Opioid Dashboard is designed for state and federal government agencies, drug screening labs, healthcare providers, payers, pharmacies, medical directors, and drug distributors that face the critical need to take action in fighting the opioid epidemic. 

With the U.S. death toll exceeding the equivalent of six 747 passenger jets crashing each month and an estimated cost of $55 billion annually, opioid abuse is a national emergency. To combat this epidemic, the hc1 Opioid Dashboard automatically analyzes live information spanning more than 3.8 million healthcare providers nationally and 5 billion diagnostic test results to deliver insight down to the zip code level on the usage of prescription opioids and illicit drugs. 

In the State of Indiana, where 1,100 drug overdose deaths resulted in more than $1.4 billion in medical costs and lost lifetime earnings in 2014 alone, Governor Eric Holcomb has made attacking the opioid epidemic a top priority. The Indiana Management Performance Hub (MPH) selected the hc1 Opioid Dashboard to gain live, up to the moment insight into opioid usage trends across the state. Through its collaborative partnership with hc1.com, MPH is enhancing its ability to equip state agencies with the insight required to proactively reduce misuse and addiction to opioids.

“To counteract this mounting public health crisis, state and federal agencies must gain an edge that historical prescribing, rehab, and mortality data alone simply cannot provide,” said Brad Bostic, CEO of hc1.com. “The hc1 Opioid Dashboard delivers a live view into the drugs that are in use across the nation and correlates drug usage patterns with adverse outcomes.  This is a potential breakthrough in public health as it delivers the insight required to measure the effectiveness of current programs in preventing misuse and abuse while informing future strategies that can lead to earlier intervention and ultimately prevention.”   

Bostic is a featured speaker at AWS re:Invent 2017 where he will be presenting strategies to counteract the opioid epidemic through advanced cloud analytics on Tuesday, November 28 from 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM at the MGM Grand, Level 3, Premiere Ballroom 312 in Las Vegas.
