Indiana SBIRT Evaluation

  • Assist with design and monitoring of patient flow at the clinic level;
  • Assess basic ‘rates’ of SBIRT processes at the clinic level and for the overall project;
    • Prescreening, screening, brief intervention, brief treatment, and referral;
    • For SAMHSA-sponsored clinics, monitor GPRA data performance;
    • For SAMHSA-sponsored clinics, support tracking of 6-month follow-up clients;
    • Assist with tracking of patients who have been referred to treatment (also using the Follow-Up Support System);
  • Develop technical expertise in data entry programs and electronic health records to support clinicians and minimize impact of technological issues on service delivery;
  • Cultivate time-in-motion data to determine how long each component of the SBIRT process takes in an average case;
  • Collect and assess SBIRT performance data at clinics performing SBIRT that do not collect GPRA data (facilitation and reporting done using SBIRT Dash);
  • Collect and report cost data at the clinic level and at the patient level (e.g., service delivery cost);
  • To the extent possible given implementation limitations, conduct retrospective assessments of the impact of SBIRT on key outcomes, such as risky, harmful, or dependent alcohol use (e.g., AUDIT scores at baseline and 12 months later for patients receiving SBIRT services).
