The Florida Drug-Related Outcomes and Surveillance Tracking System (FROST) is a valuable resource for providing timely analysis, visualization, and reporting of pharmacoepidemiologic data. The project objectives include expanding the FROST system and its technology to: (1) enhance public safety and public health collaboration and strategic decisionmaking in Florida and (2) increase uptake of county-level prescribing indicators generated by the Prescription Behavioral Surveillance System (PBSS) for Florida and California; evaluating synthetic opioid-related deaths by establishing a fatality review team in the Sarasota Medical Examiner’s Office region; and evaluating the impact of national prescribing guidelines on high risk prescribing associated with negative public health and safety outcomes in Florida and California, two large states.
