Hawaii Addiction Treatment Providers Plan

SMART Management is proud to serve Hawaii addiction treatment providers with an EHR specifically designed to streamline opioid treatment program workflows. Providers like Ku Aloha Mau dedicate their time to supporting the states efforts to stay ahead of the ongoing epidemic.

In 2019 Hawaii was awarded $2 million in federal grant funds to aid in opioid crisis prevention efforts. This funding helps Hawaii’s Opioid Initiative Action Plan and other proven programs, like those delivering Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

This plan includes action areas such as: modernizing healthcare strategies, improving prescribing practices, enhancing data collection, increasing consumer education and prescription harm management with pharmacy-based strategies, and supporting law enforcement and first responders. “Fortunately, Hawaii has not yet experienced the magnitude of the opioid crisis seen in other parts of the country,” said Gov. David Y. Ige in 2017 after the release of Hawaii’s Opioid Initiative Action Plan. “While emerging issues and concerns in the state are on the rise, we have been given a relatively unique opportunity to proactively respond, prepare, and prevent the crisis from reaching the same magnitude.”
