A Health and Human Services (HHS) report by RAND that presents findings from a scoping study to assess the types of data sources and data-linkage efforts that are currently being used or could potentially be leveraged to support research and evaluations to combat the opioid crisis. Alternative pain management, overdose prevention, and prevention/treatment/recovery strategies are addressed. Secondary data sources are also discussed that are relevant to opioid research.
