ADHS issues opioid reporting update

Gov. Doug Ducey has extended the reporting of opioid-related data by renewing his June 13 executive order requiring physicians to report through MEDSIS suspected opioid overdoses, suspected opioid deaths and neonatal abstinence syndrome.

Recently the governor expanded the requirements to include a requirement that hospitals and hospital subclasses submit blood samples from patients with suspected opioid overdoses.  That requirement has now been lifted due to provider feedback and their ability to comply.
