Smart RX - Smart Medicine and Responsible Treatment

OHA is expanding continuing education for opioid prescribers at Ohio hospitals. We are proud to join the Coverys Community Healthcare Foundation which awarded OHA with a grant to offer training for prescribers.

OHA sponsored the initial launch the Smart RX in 2015. Smart RX is an advanced learning tool to help health care professionals combat Ohio’s prescription drug abuse and subsequent opioid addiction problem. The Smart Rx online training program pairs the latest expertise on reducing prescription drug abuse with online training techniques designed for today’s busy medical professional.

Developed by the Ohio State Medical Association, Smart RX is an advanced learning tool to help health care professionals combat Ohio’s prescription drug abuse and subsequent opioid addiction problem. The Smart Rx online training program pairs the latest expertise on reducing prescription drug abuse with online training techniques designed for busy medical professionals. Smart Rx consists of four 15-minute interactive modules that cover:
  • Regulation and legislation
  • How to stay compliant
  • Educating patients
  • Alternatives to prescribing
These modules are accessible from your computer, smartphone or tablet and are available any time.

Individual access to Smart Rx thru OHA-SmartRx.com (input code OHA in the registration page) includes 1 hour of CME and can be completed at your own pace. Group participation is also available, and you and your colleagues may want to view these educational modules as a group. To do so, one person will still need to register for the program and then all can view it.  

Unfortunately, CME in the group setting is not provided except to the individual who registered. To help hospitals and systems keep track of participation with this training, though, we offer an online sign in sheet that the OHA will then download and share with particpating hospitals quarterly.  Please click here to complete the sign in sheet.
