SOLUTIONS FOR AN EVOLVING OPIOID EPIDEMIC

Patients with opioid use disorder frequently go undiagnosed or untreated. They face myriad obstacles navigating a fractured ecosystem in order to receive quality treatment.

Leveraging personalized services grounded in analytics, axialHealthcare identifies patients at risk, prevents escalation in their condition, and supports appropriate treatment enrollment and adherence. Our high-touch, community-based approach delivers measurable clinical and financial outcomes by effectively managing cost of care while supporting sustained recovery for patients with opioid use disorder.

THE PROBLEM

Opioid misuse costs patients, health insurers, and society as a whole.
