Addressing Substance Use in AIMS Awardee Settings Part 2: Effective Use of EHR Systems in Substance Use Assessment and Treatment 

June 20, 2018

3:00pm- 4:30pm EST

HRSA’s Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) is pleased to offer a webinar hosted by the SAMHSA- HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions that will address strategies to leverage electronic health record (EHR) systems to facilitate substance use assessment and treatment, including evidence-based practices such as Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Presenters will outline the process of developing and implementing workflows for effective behavioral health and substance use disorder assessment and treatment, strategies to harmonize technological workflows with these interventions, and key privacy and confidentiality-related compliance considerations, including compliance with state regulations and the newly updated 42 CFR Part 2: Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records.

After this webinar, participants will:
  • Understand substance use assessment and treatment best practices that can easily be integrated into routine health centers workflows, including MAT, SBIRT, care coordination with external entities, and referrals. 
  • Understand appropriate workflows for start-up and implementation of substance use assessment and treatment. 
  • Understand privacy and confidentiality regulations such as 42 CFR Part 2 and identify strategies for compliance.
  • Identify resources to access technical assistance in the areas of Health Information Technology, workflow development, and substance use assessment and treatment.
