With the recent rise in opioid overdose and death1<br/><br/>, chronic opioid therapy (COT) programs using<br/>Center of Disease Control (CDC) guidelines have been implemented across the United States8<br/>.<br/>Primary care clinicians at Mayo Clinic initiated a COT program in September of 2017, during the<br/>use of Cerner Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. Study metrics included provider<br/>satisfaction and perceptions regarding opioid prescription. Mayo Clinic transitioned its EHR<br/>system from Cerner to Epic in October 2018. This study aims to understand if provider perceptions<br/>about COT changed after the EHR transition and the reasons underlying those perceptions.
