An innovative approach to guiding ControlCheck™ customers towards developing a successful diversion prevention program. This cohort model is part of the Bluesight Community. More information about the community can be found below.
What is the Diversion Collective?
The Diversion Collective is a virtual learning cohort facilitated through the Bluesight Community. Broken into eight collaborative sessions, the Diversion Collective helps you jump-start your implementation planning.
Our cohort model allows you to learn best practices from experts and discover solutions to the unique challenges you face by collaborating with peers.
We provide you tools and resources to save you time while ensuring the success of your overall diversion program.
ControlCheck has the largest customer base in the industry. We have experience implementing large, complex, health systems with the resources to effectively scale and develop our processes and solutions to meet the needs of the market.
The collective is led by our Directors of Clinical Strategy. The leaders are pharmacists who have created resources and materials, leveraging industry best practices and prior learnings from our ControlCheck hospitals to assist in the following areas:

The best part of the Diversion Collective is the collaboration with the other sites using ControlCheck. Drug diversion monitoring is not an area that is black and white – learning from others has been the most powerful tool. Beyond that, as a part of the Collective, Bluesight provides valuable templates and starter kits that we used to update our hospital’s processes and policies.
Thank you so much for providing much needed information, guidelines, templates, processes, and SOPs to perform our jobs more effectively. The Diversion Collective has helped us to build, expand, and stay updated on our rapidly growing diversion program. Bluesight has made a huge impact on my day-to-day responsibilities and workflow.
CPhT, Pharmacy Compliance Coordinator,
Bluesight’s Diversion Collective adds value to the ControlCheck experience by educating participants on how to effectively leverage the application to minimize diversion events. The Collective is broken into smaller cohorts, which allows us to share best practices on controlled substance workflows and learn from our peers across the nation.
