Over 50 individuals from many stakeholder groups convened in 2018 to develop and begin executing an action plan to improve pain management, opioid use, and opioid use disorder treatment through more widespread and effective patient-centered clinical decision support (PCCDS). The opioid action plan (OAP) includes five consensus, highly desirable opioid-related future vision scenarios for PCCDS-enabled care. The scenarios reference 19 PCCDS interventions that are not widely or well implemented today but could be highly valuable. The OAP includes recommendations for various stakeholder groups to make the future vision and underlying interventions widely implemented. Most importantly, the OAP includes over two dozen examples of specific steps toward the future vision that organizations have taken as a result of contributing to the OAP. During this panel, the OAP lead author will outline the future scenarios and recommendations, and 4 individuals who helped develop the plan will describe OAP-driven actions they have taken and/or implications for their work with healthcare systems, CDS suppliers, electronic health record vendors, and government agencies. Half the session will be interactive discussion between panelists and audience members to surface opportunities to further accelerate PCCDS-enabled pain and opioid management within and across organizations.

Learning Objective: Learn new strategies and collaboration opportunities for applying patient-centered clinical decision support to better manage pain, opioid use, and opioid use disorder screening and treatment.
