Blueprint, Fall/Winter 2018

The lead story of this issue focuses on a groundbreaking UHF project examining the impact of parental opioid abuse on children's mental health, development, and family responsibilities. The article covers the inaugural meeting of the project, which brought together some 40 specialists from around the nation, and describes both the challenges and opportunities that they see. UHF president Tony Shih shares his thoughts about what the opioid crisis says about our health system in "A Word with Tony Shih." Other articles in the issue spotlight UHF's Patient-Reported Outcomes in Primary Care-New York initiative, the dangers to New York's individual health insurance market if the individual mandate is repealed, our annual gala, and our newly released antibiotic toolkit for outpatient practices.
