Michigan OPEN


The goal of the Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (OPEN) and the Michigan Emergency Department Improvement Collaborative (MEDIC) project is to reduce opioid-related morbidity and mortality by:

  • Increasing the distribution of naloxone, a medication that quickly reverses an opioid overdose, to patients treated for opioid overdose and those at high risk of future overdose
  • Facilitating hospital and community interprofessional provider networks to develop best practices for emergency department-based opioid use disorder screening, naloxone distribution, and initiation of medication-assisted treatment
