Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for providers that use OPOS

Is OPOS a referral service?

No, you do not refer your patients to OPOS. We work with provider organizations and providers that utilize chronic opioid therapy as part of a multimodal treatment plan for their chronic pain patients. We bring board certified pain specialists to support providers through the OPOS platform. We work with you to ensure regulatory compliance and improve patient outcomes through functional optimization and reduce risk through enhanced regulatory compliance.

Many of my colleagues no longer want to prescribe opioids. What are the risks associated with prescribing opioid medications?

Adherence to opioid prescribing state and federal guidelines and regulations is complex, time consuming and requires training and experience. Prescribing guidelines and regulatory requirements change on a regular basis. The result is increasing time burdens on the provider, increased administrative processes, and the constant threat of medical board and/or DEA accusations. Managing this risk can take a lot of time with little or no remuneration. With recent regulatory changes, many providers have decided it is easier to not write opioid prescriptions any longer. This is creating an access problem for chronic pain patients that need pain management for adequate function, independence and quality of life. OPOS mitigates prescribing risk, aligns provider time with income and increases in practice capacity. In our experience, while some providers have decided to no longer write opioid prescriptions, it is reflective of their risk, liability and hassle. OPOS solves this rather than a judgement of the relative value of opioid therapy.

What is the alternative for my chronic opioid therapy patients if I do not continue to prescribe opioid medications?

Unfortunately there are not many alternatives for patients whose provider no longer wants to prescribe opioid medications. Many of the six thousand pain specialists in the United States are interventionists and will not assume long-term opioid prescribing for patients that need opioid medication management. For the millions of patients who have a legitimate need for opioid therapy, losing access to their medications has become a reality due to the intense pressure facing clinicians to sharply cut back on prescribing and dispensing opioid medications. Patients who have relied on legitimately prescribed opioid medications to work, care for their families, attend school, and participate in social events are now faced with the possibility of losing their functional ability and potentially turning to street drugs for their pain relief. The effects of this are all too clear in the number of accidental overdoses attributed to street drugs, with fentanyl being the number one cause of overdose deaths.

FAQs for patients that use OPOS

What is Chronic Opioid Therapy or Long Term Opioid Therapy?

Chronic pain is a complex problem that can have effects on our physical and mental well-being and affects one in three adults in the United States. Chronic Opioid Therapy (COT) is one tool that healthcare providers help patients manage their pain and refers to the daily use of opioids such as morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, etc. for managing chronic pain that lasts more than 3 months. It is typically used for conditions such as chronic back or neck pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or cancer-related pain. These medications should always be initiated, monitored, and discontinued by a qualified healthcare professional due to the potential for addiction, dependence, and other adverse side effects associated with opioid use.

What are the benefits of Chronic Opioid Therapy?

Chronic opioid therapy has the potential to provide significant benefits for patients who experience chronic pain. Studies have shown that reduced pain related to opioid medications may improve a person’s quality of life, improve mood and emotional well-being, and enable patients to engage in daily activities such as going to work or participating in social gatherings. However, it is important to note that the benefits of chronic opioid therapy must be weighed against the potential risks and side effects. Only you and your healthcare provider are able to make this determination.

What are some risks associated with Chronic Opioid Therapy?

As with all medications if not taken as prescribed, there are several potential risks associated with chronic opioid therapy. Some of these risks include opioid dependence, addiction, or tolerance and respiratory depression. Additionally, some people experience adverse side effects as a result of long-term opioid use. Constipation, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, drowsiness, confusion, and sedation are all potential side-effects that should be discussed with your healthcare provider if they occur.
