What is the Medication Diversion Analytics Accelerator?

The Medication Diversion Analytics Accelerator powerfully supports system-level controls to prevent medication diversion, leveraging data to reveal usage and administration patterns that warrant investigation and follow up.

As a major patient safety and care quality issue, medication diversion is a key concern in healthcare organizations. And in the context of the U.S. opioid epidemic, it’s also a growing concern. Yet, experts believe that only a fraction of providers who divert medication is ever identified.

Medication Diversion Accelerator Benefits and Features

Sharpen your vision with data.

The application reveals deviations from typical prescription and administration practices for specific groups of medications (e.g., opioids, benzodiazepines, certain high-cost antipsychotic and mental health drugs) and focuses analysis on those drugs. It calculates deviations from expected dispensing patterns and flags caregivers for follow-up. The accelerator also compares volumes dispensed by medication groups across organizational departments so users can understand differences within peer groups and explore behavior in context.
