Hospital System Addictions Care CoP Resources (Formerly MAT CoP)

Welcome to the Hospital System Addictions Care Community of Practice!
This CoP builds upon and expands the former MAT CoP by helping hospital-based administrators, healthcare providers, and other practitioners implement systemic and effective approaches that address the substance use disorder (SUD) needs of patients and enhance patient and hospital outcomes.
CoPs provide a forum for you to share your perspectives, explore solutions, connect with your peers, and take away insights to improve your practice.

The Hospital System Addictions Care CoP promotes the development of interdisciplinary hospital systems that identify, engage, treat, and coordinate services for people with a substance use disorder (SUD) to improve patient and hospital outcomes. This approach uses any “reachable moment” to enhance patient-centered care and hospital outcomes by providing medication assisted treatment and other interventions and linking patients to SUD care and harm reduction support after discharge.

Meeting Schedule:
CoP Meetings are on the third Thursday from 1:00pm-2:30pm every other month.

Webinar: HSAC CoP Kick Off Meeting: Improving Patient and Hospital Outcomes through Hospital-based Systems of Care – February 11, 2021

The Improving Addiction Care Team (IMPACT) program at Oregon Health & Science University is an interprofessional hospital-based addictions team that addresses the whole-person needs of patients with SUD who present with medical and surgical complications of addiction. Studies show this nationally-recognized program is associated with improved patient and provider experience, improved post-hospital SUD treatment engagement, and decreased healthcare costs. Dr. Englander, IMPACT Director, provided an overview of the program, highlighted evaluation findings, answered questions, and discussed with attendees how hospital-based addiction care can improve patient and hospital outcomes in New Hampshire.
