National Summit: Leveraging Technology to Improve Access to Addiction Care

Technology is changing our response to addiction and the opioid crisis. Are you ready?

Join us on September 16 from 8 AM – 12 PM ET at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for National Summit: Leveraging Technology to Improve Access to Addiction Care, a free event designed to help you leverage and apply technology to increase access and improve outcomes of addiction care.

With a dynamic learning agenda, policymakers, health care providers, industry leaders and individuals with lived experience will offer a comprehensive overview of the telehealth landscape, provider innovations and experiences, and new technologies.

New tools are being brought to market that can replace or supplement traditional medical practices and therapies. Thought leaders and early adopters will examine the issues that are changing health care with presentations, moderated panels and interactive sessions that will:

  • Explore current tech strategies to serve individuals with opioid use disorders.
  • Demonstrate digital approaches that are revolutionizing care.
  • Review best practices and mechanisms for financing.
