Collaboration to support the deployment of the SOAR™, a risk assessment tool used to identify patients who may abuse or misuse opioids or other controlled substances. The SOAR™ supports SBIRT reporting for Medicare and Medicaid programs with a comprehensive report. Collaboration may include, but is not limited to, the engagement of telemedicine systems for addressing, preventing, and treating opioid addiction.
Seeking Collaborators in Telemedicine Treatment of Addiction
NineSigma, on behalf of InteraSolutions, seeks organizations interested in collaborating to deploy an opioid addiction risk assessment protocol in telemedicine systems that enable remote prevention and treatment of addiction.
NineSigma invites interested candidates to submit a brief, non-confidential statement of interest.
InteraSolutions, one of the winners of the Challenge Phase of the Ohio Opioid Technology Challenge, has developed an opioid risk assessment screening app that identifies patients with risk factors for opioid abuse. The Screen for Opioid Abuse Risk (SOAR™) is a HIPAA/HITECH compliant psychological assessment tool. After a patient completes a 10-15-minute web-based questionnaire, the system provides immediate assessment of that patient’s risk for addiction, permitting health care providers to recommend appropriate care and treatment that avoids addiction.
