Activity Overview 

Health care organizations are continuously working to improve patient and health care worker safety and eliminate controlled substance drug diversion.  

There has been tremendous focus over the last few years on diversion prevention strategies, most significantly around available controlled substance diversion software analytic tools. This webinar aims to discuss the overall life cycle of these analytic tools and how to maximize their use at each stage, from implementation to integration within controlled substance diversion prevention programs.
