Data, provider partnerships help Blue Cross Blue Shield plans combat opioid crisis | FierceHealthcare

Data can also help insurers work to reduce unnecessary opioid prescription, noted Jeanne James, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee.
Her health plan uses its data to identify providers whose prescribing patterns don't adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines, and conducts outreach to those providers. James noted that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee has funded a series of town halls in the communities it serves geared at removing stigma about opioid use disorder, prevention, education and the dissemination of best practices for dealing with the crisis. Some of the nonclinical best practices it's identified include creating bereavement support groups for families who have lost members to addiction, incarceration diversion programs and the use of recovery addiction specialists, she said.
