Opioid Data Lab:
The opioid epidemic is a complex public health issue, so The Opioid Data Lab, a consortium of public and private organizations, together with the local community are turning to analytics to to help reduce the number of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome - babies born dependent to opioids.
By bringing together data from insurance claims, prescriptions, and local records the Opioid Data Lab is able to create targeted solutions at a local level to create real, lasting impact.
Battle for our babies
Infant mortality disproportionality affects underrepresented communities; regardless of location or education people of color have much higher rates of infant mortality. Battle for Our Babies began in Cleveland out of personal passion and led to a new kind of project at the intersection of technology, healthcare, and the arts.
In Cleveland, a diverse city came together to share their stories, but engagement was just the start. Now that community is connecting with tech innovators, the private sector, and the government in order to create solutions.
