Ohio Pain Management Toolkit

Implementing the Rules & Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids (Acute, Subacute & Chronic Pain in the Primary Care Setting)
  • Release Date: June 30, 2019
  • Expiration Date: June 30, 2020
  • Estimated Time of Completion: 60 minutes


This was the second-highest rate of drug overdose deaths in the United States at 39.2 deaths per 100,000. In order to address this problem, the Ohio State Medical Association, Medical Advantage Group and Ohio Department of Health developed a Ohio Pain Management Toolkit for Primary Care Providers. The toolkit contains 10 suggested strategies for primary care offices to follow to assure a consistent approach to pain management and reduce the potential for over-prescribing opioid analgesics against the risk of addiction when treatment with an opioid is determined to be clinically necessary.

By successfully completing this webinar, the learner should be able to:

  • Describe the current status of Ohio’s opioid epidemic;
  • Explain why improved patient safety strategies related to opioid prescribing are necessary in the primary care setting; and,
  • Apply the Ohio Pain Management Toolkit in the practice setting.

Medical Marijuana: Coding & Documentation in Ohio

The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program allows people with certain medical conditions, upon the recommendation of an Ohio-licensed physician certified by the State Medical Board, to purchase and use medical marijuana. For physicians incorporating this into their practice, it is important that professional practice standards be in place and an effective coding, documentation and billing compliance plan be followed.

This webinar was developed to describe the Ohio requirements for medical marijuana in terms of patient status, review the diagnoses required to support the marijuana recommendation, and explain the E&M documentation requirements for history, exam and medical decision-making process, and levels of care. The agenda will review diagnoses for services, documentation requirements for assessment and frequency, practice model concerns such as cash or insurance, and more.

Speaker: Diane Zucker, M.Ed, CCS-P
