Salesforce announced that the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) launched its Naloxone Virtual Dispensary, an inventory management application built on the Salesforce Platform.
Salesforce Platform tracks the state’s supply of naloxone, the opioid overdose antidote, at both the funding and distribution level.
Nevada DHHS deployed the Naloxone Virtual Dispensary to rapidly distribute naloxone and responsibly manage and report on federally appropriated funds and taxpayer dollars used to purchase it. The app provides visibility and data on naloxone usage and patterns across Nevada, freeing up time for DHHS staff to focus on other business-critical activities, such as training.
The Naloxone Virtual Dispensary allows DHHS to redistribute naloxone to other community-based organizations based on supply and demand, creating a flexible inventory management system, said Rob Stein, senior vice president, North America Public Sector, Salesforce.
The app also enables DHHS to track and analyze data regarding overdose reversals through voluntary information provided by individuals seeking doses of naloxone. This anonymous, aggregated data provides critical context to program administrators looking to understand what is occurring across communities and how naloxone is being used.
“Since deploying our Naloxone Virtual Dispensary app, we’ve dispensed 11,861 naloxone kits to community-based organizations, provided an additional 4,942 naloxone kits to first responder agencies, and have had 856 reports of overdose reversals,” said Dr. Stephanie Woodard, Psy.D., DHHS Senior Advisor on Behavioral Health, State of Nevada.
