Treating substance use disorders in the criminal justice system
In this thought-provoking podcast episode, we invite guest Casey Grover, an emergency physician, to explore the ethical dilemmas surrounding the treatment of substance use disorders in the criminal justice system. Join us as we examine two compelling case studies that shed light on the harmful consequences of inadequate treatment. Casey shares insights into the violation of ethical principles and the urgent need for change. We discuss the life-saving potential of buprenorphine as a proven treatment for opioid use disorder and its impact on reducing overdose deaths. Discover the ethical responsibilities of health care providers and the transformative impact that proper treatment can have on incarcerated individuals. Join us as we advocate for a shift towards compassionate and equitable care for patients with substance use disorders in the criminal justice system.

Ambient intelligence augments human capabilities to make our lives easier. The applications are many, especially in health care. Ambient clinical intelligence is offsetting the most pressing challenges in health care today, such as burnout, physician shortages, physician and patient dissatisfaction, and underperforming financial outcomes, by applying the technology to clinical documentation.
The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician’s review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS’s top 20 emerging solutions.
