Prescription drug overdose is the number one cause of accidental death in the United States. Beyond these tragic deaths, prescription drug abuse causes many more emergency room visits and billions of dollars in medical expenses. Every incident represents a problem and a potential liability.
Identifying risks early helps manage risks associated with overdose and abuse. Armed with better information in a useful form, physicians can help identify abusers and direct them to treatment earlier in the process.
