Essential hospitals are invited to apply for a new learning collaborative, launching June 2022, to create or enhance office-based addiction treatment (OBAT) programs for opioid use disorder. OBAT uses a collaborative care model that relies on nurse care managers or similar staff to deliver high-quality addiction treatment in collaboration with clinicians prescribing buprenorphine.
Essential Hospitals Institute, in partnership with the CVS Health Foundation, will award selected hospitals with up to $50,000, training, educational resources, and an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning.
Join us for a Feb. 2 informational webinar about the learning collaborative. All proposals should be submitted by email to EssentialOBAT@essentialhospitals.org by March 16. Please note “OBAT Proposal from [name of organization]” in the subject line of the email.
