Evidence Based Care
Using Evidence Based Care insures your health center is using the best of
what science offers to bring quality and effective care to your community.
How do we help you implement Evidence Based Care?
Screening, Brief Interventions,
Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)
SBIRT is an evidenced based approach to addressing substance use in the primary care setting. NSI Strategies helps build the confidence to screen and perform brief interventions by empowering your teams to make SBIRT a sustainable part of your organizational culture and practice.
Substance Use Disorders in Primary Care
Integrated care settings are ideal environments to address substance use disorders because they are already effective at treating other chronic health conditions. NSI Strategies empowers your team by providing the knowledge, clinical and management skills to work with your teams to address substance misuse and disorders. The primary care setting is where many of our patients first come, and is where we have the opportunity to bring care in a proactive way.
Measurement Based Care
NSI Strategies helps organizations align clinical pathways with evidenced based practices (EBP). We assist in choosing the right EBP based on the cultural dynamics of your patient population, provider licensure and experience, and your overall model and level of integration.
Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH)
A key component to the ongoing movement towards providing the strongest levels of integration includes PCMH. NSI Strategies supports your team to implement and achieve all six Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) Health Homes Core Clinical Features. Ultimately, this new model of care will improve outcome measures and meet the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification requirements to be a certified patent centered medical home.
In 2016, an estimated 21 million people aged 12 or older needed treatment for a substance use disorder, but only 3.8 million people aged 12 or older received the treatment and care they needed. (https://www.samhsa.gov/data/)
