AATOD’s Five-Year Plan
We will continue to work with the Denver Health and Hospital Authority and participating OTPs to anonymously collect patient admission data under the aegis of the Researched Abuse, Diversion and Addiction-Related Surveillance (RADARS®) System. We began this initiative in January 2005, collecting more than 130,000 patient surveys. This data gathering system is especially important at this time since patients have shifted from using prescription opioids to heroin and currently fentanyl. This work will continue throughout this strategic five-year plan, and we anticipate that we will continue to provide guidance to our field through published studies.
