Innovatively Increasing PCP Prescribing of Buprenorphine: Measurement Based Care and Integrated Electronic Solution (NIH HEAL Initiative)

Funded by the NIH HEAL Initiative

This project will develop an office-based buprenorphine treatment module for primary care, including the algorithm for buprenorphine treatment and integration of OUD measures; assess the acceptability of the OUD module; evaluate the impact of the OUD module on screening and identification rates of problem opioid use and successful initiation and maintenance rates of buprenorphine in primary care; assess barriers to implementation of buprenorphine treatment and methods for overcoming these barriers in the network partner clinics; and develop a strategy to refine and more broadly implement opioid problem use and OUD treatment.
