Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Epidemic
The cost of treating SUD is enormous and growing
The number of persons afflicted with SUD is large and growing. In the United Kingdom during fiscal year 2013/14 the direct cost of treating drug related SUD patients alone was £581 million. These numbers reflect direct spending on the illness, not the indirect costs to society, such as associated illnesses (AIDS, HVC,HVB, etc.), absenteeism from school and work and interaction with the criminal justice system. These indirect costs to society have been estimated to be more than 4 times the direct cost.
Long Term Close Monitoring Shows Promise
Research has demonstrated that continuous close monitoring of Physicians with SUD results in markedly higher rates of sustained recovery from addiction than the recovery rate for the SUD population at large. However, up to now close monitoring programs have not been widely used because of the significantly greater cost involved. The PredictiCare solution adopts state of the art technology that enables healthcare providers to offer a cost-effective continuous monitoring treatment program for all their SUD patients.
