Exemplar Hospital Initiation Trial to Enhance Treatment Engagement (EXHIT ENTRE) (NIH HEAL Initiative)

Funded by the NIH HEAL Initiative

This study will examine whether 1) in hospitals with addiction medicine consultation services, hospital-initiated extended release buprenorphine (XR-BUP), compared to other OUD medications, results in increased OUD treatment engagement following hospital discharge; and 2) training hospitals without such consultation services on best practices for initiating OUD medication using consultation service hubs improves medication uptake in hospitals and following discharge.
