Episode #54 – The Power of Prescribing In Opioid Addiction


Dr. Steve is fresh on the warpath with this new ‘Red Hot’ episode on the opioid epidemic. In it, he speaks with Intermountain Healthcare and the leadership team, on the war they’re waging against opioid addiction and over-prescribing.

Interviewed guests include Associate Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Hasleton and Mikelle Moore, Senior Vice President of Community Health and Population Health Management.


  • The staggering statistics of opioid abuse today
  • How the body gets addicted to these powerful medications
  • Intermountain Health’s goal to drop acute prescriptions by 40%
  • How past health plan and medical culture helped cause the current epidemic
  • Views on medical cannabis as a viable alternative for stopping abuse


 I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Steve Ambrose on a podcast that covered a range of topics in healthcare information technology. The podcast logistics – communications, interview questions, scheduling and production – were every well managed.
A great experience that I would do again in an instance.

Dr. John Glaser
SVP, Population Health at CERNER
