Dr. Leslie Lenert (left) and Dr. Jenna McCauley (right) are working to improve detection of nonfatal opioid overdose. The team of MUSC researchers has been awarded $3.75 million by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences to enhance an existing informatics tool known as “informatics for integrating biology and the bedside” or I2B2. The MUSC team will enhance I2B2 so that it can better identify Emergency Department cases of nonfatal opioid overdose.
