Additional Programming Code for Toolkit: Using Data Analysis To Calculate Opioid Levels and Identify Patients at Risk of Misuse or Overdose

In June 2018, the Office of Evaluation and Inspections (OEI) released a new product entitled Toolkit: Using Data Analysis To Calculate Opioid Levels and Identify Patients at Risk of Misuse or Overdose (OEI-02-17-00560). The toolkit, which is based on the methodology we developed for our recent opioid data briefs, provides detailed steps for using prescription claims data to analyze patients' opioid levels and to identify certain patients who are at risk of opioid misuse or overdose. We released the toolkit with SAS programming code. We will extend the reach of the toolkit and issue the programming code in two commonly used coding languages, R and SQL, for our public and private partners to use to further combat the opioid crisis.
