atom Alliance is working on a Special Innovation Project (SIP) from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The purpose of the project is to work collaboratively with IU Hospital Frankfort and physicians, nurse practitioners and dentists in Clinton County Indiana to decrease opioid use.

Contact Cheryl Riddell, RN at CRiddell@qsource.org, Project Lead, for more information.
