Part D PDE Data and the Opioid Epidemic

The State Data Resource Center (SDRC) and its data experts explored how state Medicaid agencies can utilize Part D Prescription Drug Event (PDE) data to combat the opioid epidemic. From the early 1990s to the early 2010s, the number of opioid prescriptions in the United States has more than doubled, while the number of opioid-related overdose deaths has more than tripled during the 2000s and 2010s. SDRC illustrated which Part D PDE elements can maximize state Medicaid agencies’ efforts to implement opioid-related care coordination and program integrity initiatives.
