For Gov. Ralph Northam, MD, it’s beyond time to end the state’s “foremost public health crisis.” Northam, a pediatric neurologist, gave a Grand Rounds lecture on opioid addiction at the University of Virginia School of Medicine on Wednesday. He brought with him Ryan Hall, a former heroin addict who has devoted himself to helping others overcome addiction. Before a packed auditorium of medical school students and faculty, Hall told his story.
Northam will give three more lectures this month at Eastern Virginia Medical School, Virginia Commonwealth University and Liberty University.
On July 31, Governor Ralph Northam announced the launch of Virginia’s Emergency Department Care Coordination (EDCC) Program. This single, statewide technology solution connects all emergency departments in the Commonwealth, facilitating near real-time communication and collaboration among healthcare providers, health plans, clinical and care management personnel for patients receiving emergency medical services. The program also integrates the state’s Prescription Monitoring Program and the Advance Healthcare Directive Registry. Virginia is the first state in the nation to connect all of its emergency department systems in this way.
