This syndrome was created as a way to integrate the H-CUP Opioid-Related Hospital Use definition into ESSENCE. H-CUP is the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project and we believe their Opioid-Related Hospital Use definition is a great starting point for developing opiate-use syndrome definitions.
Details on the H-CUP can be found at https://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/ and this syndrome definition is derived from the list of ICD-10 codes located at https://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/faststats/OpioidUseServlet in the following Excel file https://www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/faststats/faq_faststats.jsp
