COVID-19 Policy Effects on Opioid Use Disorder Patient Services at the Pennsylvania Centers of Excellence

In 2017, Pennsylvania designated 45 primary care practices, hospitals, community health centers, and substance use disorder treatment providers as centers of excellence because they were taking a holistic approach to OUD treatment. This grant will examine how these providers have responded to COVID-19 policies related to MOUD provision and telehealth services to determine the effects on service provision, workforce attitudes, and patient outcomes.
