/ -- GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - March 21, 2017) - Opioid addiction is currently our country's #1 health epidemic. This epidemic is quickly becoming a meaningful cost driver with an estimated annual $72.5 billion in medical and prescription costs for health care payers and providers. As the industry focuses on this major issue, providers who address, prescribe, or treat individuals receiving opioids must provide better care and prevent costly waste.

Join Dr. Lloyd I. Sederer, Chief Medical Officer of the New York State Office of Mental Health on April 18th, 2017 at 2:00pm ET to hear the four secrets to providing better care and preventing unnecessary costs. These key principles apply to all medical and behavioral health conditions, but this session will focus on applying these principles using opioid addiction as a case example. The four secrets Dr. Sederer will explore include:

  1. Behavior serves a purpose
  2. Power of attachment
  3. Less is more, as a rule
  4. Chronic stress is the enemy

During this 90-minute executive web briefing, attendees will:

  • Review the four key principles to providing better care
  • Discover how these principles can be applied to improve effectiveness of providers
  • Explore the implications providing better care will have on your clinical practice
