The Mississippi State Department of Health will establish a state opioid and heroin data center to serve as an information resource for Mississippi. Community members, health care providers, and other stakeholders will utilize a comprehensive analysis of multiple data sources produced by this center to reduce the number of inappropriate opioid prescriptions and decrease the number of opioid fatalities in Mississippi.
