Why 1Life?

All of us only have 1 Life.  We at The 1Life Project take that seriously.   Deaths from opioid overdoses continue to rise.¹  And we’ve decided to fight the battle with technology.

Did you know?  The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is committed to addressing opioid abuse, dependence and overdose.  HHS has developed a five-point comprehensive strategy: (1) better data, (2) better pain treatment, (3) more addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery services, (4) more overdose reversers, and (5) better research.  Several agencies within HHS have joined the effort.

The 1Life Project has joined the effort too.

The 1Life Project,  powered by Competitive Solutions, Inc.  built a state of the art opioid incidence monitoring tool employing artificial intelligence/expert system technology.

At The 1Life Project, we are making data accessible, open, and sharable for research, care givers, community coalitions and agencies.

We know it works because we’re doing it right now.  Our technology is live in New York.  We are connecting communities.

And we’re proving it.

Imagine this.  A patient overdoses and is taken to the hospital.  After his/her care is completed, they are greeted in the hospital emergency room by a peer support specialist.  A warm, caring person.   The peer support specialist helps them talk things out and put a plan together for further help.  Getting a peer support specialist fast means getting our patients access to treatment faster.  A game changer.

Connecting the communities.

Or – imagine this.  Multiple overdoses are arriving at the hospital from the same area in town.  A system is being updated with the overdose information and detects a cluster forming.  Our system alerts community responders and agencies to mobilize to the area in need.  Makes sense, right?

PreDX™.  Watching your community 24/7.

Our team of clinicians, engineers and health data specialists built a health platform.  It is already installed, running and keeping communities safe in Hudson Valley, New York.
