Overview

Through the data validation process, valuable information is gained that can then be used to improve performance around patient care or quality of care metrics.  Improving quality performance may take the form of improving data collection processes, better identifying patients who need additional interventions, or decreasing missed opportunities to provide patients appropriate interventions, among other possibilities. This section includes guidance on leveraging Health IT to improve quality performance including change packages for recommended approaches related to various quality of care measures.

HITEQ Highlights: Using Health Information Technology to Facilitate SBIRT Service Delivery in Health Centers

HITEQ Highlights: Using Health Information Technology to Facilitate SBIRT Service Delivery in Health Centers

Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an intervention designed to identify and provide early intervention and treatment to individuals who are at risk for or have substance use disorders (SUDs). Health centers are well positioned to integrate behavioral health interventions, such as SBIRT, into primary care to enhance patient care and overall health outcomes. The webinar discussed the use of health information technologies (IT) to facilitate the workflow of providing SBIRT services. Focus areas included: coding and billing for SBIRT services, using health IT to enhance SBIRT screening, communication, data capture and documentation, clinical decision support, and information sharing and reporting. The webinar presented examples and experiences of health centers currently using health IT to facilitate effective SBIRT service delivery.
