Aug 28, 2018 12:30pm ‐ Aug 28, 2018 2:00pm


With the opioid and behavioral health epidemic affecting all communities from urban to rural, health centers are at the front lines in combating this growing societal problem. Advances in technology are poised to help primary care providers and behavioral health care teams meet the needs of individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) through the development of innovative intervention and treatment options. This session will look at how providers can use telehealth and telepsychiatry programs, interactive assessment tools, and other healthcare-based technologies to advance the work health centers are doing around the opioid and behavioral health epidemic.
