Teleconference: Using Machine-Learning Algorithms to Prevent Drug Diversion

Tuesday, June 9, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 p.m. CDT

This Scottsdale Institute Teleconference will be presented by:

Christopher R. Fortier, PharmD, FASHP
Chief Pharmacy Officer,

Massachusetts General Hospital

Teleconference Description:

Healthcare providers are vulnerable to serious legal, financial, operational and reputational risks–and regulatory fines–due to employee drug diversion and inadequate internal controls. In fact, the cost to public and private medical insurers of controlled drug diversion and abuse is estimated to be $72.5 million per year. To avoid these risks, providers can use machine-learning algorithms together with advanced diversion prevention software to gain real-time dashboard views into their controlled substance supply chain to analyze behavior patterns among problem areas and suspected individuals.
