Indiana University’s Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge Phase Two has awarded funding to a project that combines hc1’s healthcare analytics expertise with Regenstrief Institute’s health research experience to address the problem of opioid abuse in Indiana. Led by research scientist, professor of medicine, and hc1 advisor Titus Schleyer, the project aims to build a dataset of opioid overdoses in Marion County and a platform of visualizations for that data in order to gain insight into risk factors for opioid overdoses and to use that insight to identify ways to prevent overdose deaths. hc1 contributes to this effort in several key ways:
- It integrates data from the Indiana Addictions Data Commons (IADC) and other sources into a rich dataset for analysis of overdoses.
- It provides a robust, production-ready platform specifically focused on opioids.
- It offers easy-to-understand, visual metrics of how current interventions are working and where opportunities might exist for further interventions.
