Opioid deaths in Canada continue to accelerate, with over 8000 opioid deaths since January 2016. Data science can help identify trends and patterns that lead to proactive solutions earlier.
Working with thousands of human service organizations worldwide, I see a crisis coming. Too many to serve. Not enough staff or funding. Running out of time. When you apply data science to a complex problem, it is possible to discover proactive solutions that deliver better results for less . TEDxUW 2016 gave me a chance to share this research and challenge the world.
Colleges across Ontario discuss opioid crisis based on data science, finding solutions that are proactive and transformational.
Working under the leadership of the Institute for Smarter Government 6 Ontario colleges using data analytics and AI partnered with frontline service workers in their communities to develop proactive strategies to reduce opioid death.

Demand for education, justice, health and social services are increasing faster than financial budgets can support. Transformational strategies with system level thinking make it possible to address complex issues for less and get better outcomes.
It is possible to start with what you have to start making a difference today. X-machine TM analytics take complex problems and identify trends and patterns using data available to the public.
Predictive and prescriptive analytic models will enable any community to better identify trends, target interventions, monitor impacts and support evidence-based decisions.
The Institute for Smarter Government provides government with an evidence based approach to the current opioid pandemic by working toward preventing the emergence of new crises and promoting the health and safety of citizens everywhere.
