Webinar Description: After the organizational and clinical components of initiating OUD treatment have been mapped out, how do we begin effective implementation? This session will map out concrete clinical and patient flow activities and consider issues of documentation, charting, and recommended metrics. We will review steps for conducting a small pilot/demonstration buprenorphine project, with regular outcomes-monitoring to ensure a smooth scale up of treatment and care for patients with OUD. This includes doing a walk-through to ensure behavioral health and prescriber staff have the certifications, knowledge and skills to deliver buprenorphine, or other pharmacotherapies, in integrated settings. We will discuss approaches for utilizing leadership and staff check-ins to get a pulse on practices, scale up, and changes needed to ensure successful expansion across all administrative and clinical staff. Finally, we will consider which metrics –immediate and long-term– are meaningful to your site, and how to gather relevant data to support federal/state reporting requirements, process improvement goals, and clinical decision-making in MOUD delivery.
