Sansoro Health Announces Partnership with OpiSafe

To better arm health care providers and government agencies with more
information in their combat of the opioid crisis, Sansoro Health and
OpiSafe are partnering to increase health IT data integration and
interoperability.

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sansoro Health, Inc., a pioneer in health care data integration, is
pleased to announce its partnership with OpiSafe, a leader in the
development of platforms and services that help health care providers
and government agencies address the country’s ongoing opioid epidemic.

In the U.S., drug overdoses killed more than 70,000 people in 2017 and
opiates are primarily to blame. According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, 68 percent of drug overdose deaths in 2017
involved opioids. In addition to heroin and prescription opioid abuse,
overdose death rates linked to synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, rose
by more than 45 percent from 2016.

“At OpiSafe, our mission is to deliver state of the art clinical
decision support to prescribers who consider prescribing opioids for
pain or addiction. Connecting data available through PDMPs, urinalysis
and analytics platforms to information stored in electronic health
records enables prescribers to make better prescribing decisions in less
time,” said Chris Ennis, CTO at OpiSafe. “With Sansoro Health’s
Emissary, OpiSafe practices will now have the ability to seamlessly
integrate our platform into their workflow. Both OpiSafe and Sansoro
Health embrace innovation to better handle pain, reduce opioid misuse
and ultimately improve outcomes for millions of Americans.”

The award-winning OpiSafe platform was designed to comprehensively
manage the opioid response for providers, patients, first responders and
more. Headquartered in Denver, Colo., OpiSafe serves customers in 50
states and provinces in the United States and Canada. OpiSafe partners
with several state and federal agencies to increase access to
state-funded prescription drug monitoring programs and lifesaving
overdose prevention tools.

“The team at OpiSafe is delivering new cutting-edge technologies that
enable more effective and efficient approaches to addressing the opioid
crisis,” said Dave Levin, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Sansoro Health.
“Their focus on leveraging robust clinical data sources and streamlined
workflows make them an excellent match for Sansoro’s integration
solutions.”

Sansoro’s Emissary, a universal API platform, is used by health IT
innovators across the health care industry. It facilitates real-time
data exchange between applications and EHRs, allowing innovators to
build the leading-edge tools that providers need for monitoring
patients, managing the clinical environment, and ensuring that data
flows securely.

Sansoro believes that bringing interoperability and data analytics to
the opioid epidemic can provide valuable information to health care
facilities and help them provide better care to those struggling with
addiction. In this partnership with OpiSafe, Sansoro is proud to work
with a company that is providing an innovative solution to manage opioid
response.
