CO's CURE Hospital Medicine ALTO Project

Colorado Hospital Association piloted the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Society of Hospital Medicine’s 2020 Opioid Prescribing and Treatment Guidelines for the Medical Inpatient across 10 sites from October 2019 to March 2020. This pilot effort demonstrated a reduction in opioid administrations and an increase in ALTO administrations. The tools and resources on this website are intended to assist hospitals with implementing inpatient ALTO practices in the inpatient setting.
