Opioid Crisis with Ed Boze
For the 35th episode of the CIO podcast hosted by Healthcare IT Today, we sat down with Ed Boze, Chief Innovation Officer at City of Paterson. While this is a bit of departure from our usual healthcare provider organization CIOs, we thought the work that Boze and his team at City of Paterson were doing along with a recent $1 million grant they got from Bloomberg for their work was worthy of inclusion in the CIO podcast. The opioid crisis is a challenge and it's going to take the work of more than just healthcare to solve. Boze offered a number of unique insights into how City of Paterson is approaching the crisis in their community and a program they call RealFix.
