Opioid Prescribing Guidelines
App for Opioid Prescribers
OpioidCalc allows prescribers to calculate the total daily morphine milligram equivalents (MME) that a patient is taking, based on type of opioid analgesic, strength, and quantity. Multiple types of opioid analgesics can be included in the total daily MME calculation. An alert is displayed for total daily MME ≥ 100, indicating an increased risk for overdose.
