The INXITE® Solution for Combating the Opioid Crisis
Every year millions of Americans use opioids to manage pain. Doctor-prescribed opioids are appropriate in some cases, but they just mask the pain—and reliance on opioids has led to the worst drug crisis in American history. In 2016, health care providers across the US wrote more than 214 million prescriptions for opioid pain medication—a rate of 66.5 prescriptions per 100 people.
InXite Health Systems is committed to combating opioid crisis nationwide. Drug overdoses claimed the lives of nearly 64,000 Americans in 2016. Nearly two-thirds of these deaths (66%) involved a prescription or illicit opioid. There is increasing concern for opioid related risks such as addiction, abuse, harm or misuse, as reported statistics show this is an expansive problem.
As many as 1 in 4 people who receive prescription opioids long term for noncancerous pain in primary care settings struggle with addiction. The INXITE® process begins with conducting an opioid risk assessment. Once the risk factors are identified, an individual care plan is created to help the patient find resources such as education, and treatment options that can help them find solutions.

Data Driven Solution Components
Unified Shared Care Plan Management
INXITE® creates a unified care plan that’s shared by patients and care teams. It summarizes problems, diagnoses, and treatment plans, and acts as a shared blueprint for improving outcomes.
Suspicious Activity Reporting
Suspicious activities can be generated by InXite OS or manually submitted by concerned parties. All suspicious activities are uploaded into a database, reviewed, and vetted for appropriate follow-up.
InXite Health Systems partners with genetic testing labs to determine if a patient is susceptible to addiction.
Alerts and Notifications
Smart alerts notify individuals, care providers, and support organizations when defined events do or don’t occur.
Patient Navigation Services
Pharmacists serve as care coordinators who interact with patients using controlled substances. The care coordinators help engage patients in their health, keep them accountable, and connect them to community resources as needed.
Patient facial biometric information is captured and stored as a faceprint in InXite OS. Integrated facial recognition software uses up to 80 facial nodal points to verify the patient’s identity.
