Patients undergoing surgery at Atrium Health can now receive education on safe and effective pain management through an innovative mobile initiative called END Opioids (Educational iNteractive Dashboard for Opioids). The END Opioid initiative is designed as an add-on, teaching module to an existing mobile app used by Atrium Health. Atrium Health launched the new capability through a grant provided by the Hearst Foundations. Patients access the app on their smartphones, tablets or computers, and receive reminders and education to help them follow the care plan prescribed by their physicians. Upon discharge from the hospital, patients use their mobile devices to report pain scores, symptoms, and opioid consumption, enabling them to stay connected with their care team.
