Carilion Clinic developing virtual toolset to improve opioid addiction care

Carilion Clinic is designing a suite of virtual care solutions that will better equip healthcare providers to identify and treat opioid addiction, the Roanoke, Va.-based health system announced this week.

Carilion will develop the toolset in partnership with Bethesda, Md.-based digital patient engagement company Mytonomy, which partnered with Mayo Clinic in 2018 to create educational video content about breast cancer. The digital suite will include video education and engagement tools to help clinicians identify and understand the biology of addiction, support the recovery of addicted patients and their families and connect those patients to optimal care resources throughout the recovery process.

According to Carilion and Mytonomy, the cloud-based platform will be user-friendly and mobile-accessible, as well as highly secure and HIPAA-compliant. The toolset is expected to be ready for deployment in the coming months and will be available to health systems across the U.S.
