How an electronic assessment tool can assist in meeting Tennessee Licensing for Office-Based Opiate Treatment (OBOT)

Over the last few years, we have seen many states taking the initiative and implementing new rules and regulations as a result of the opioid epidemic that is sweeping our nation.  On January 12, a new rule went into effect in Tennessee to license and oversee the regulatory compliance of non- residential office-based opiate treatment (OBOT) facilities. As part of the ruling, the state now requires a standardized assessment, such as the Addiction Severity Index (ASI).

To better understand what this means for OBOT facilities, read this article for a summary of specific areas within the ruling that relate to standardized assessments; and how the Addiction Severity Index Multimedia Version (ASI-MV) helps to meet these requirements.  In addition to complying with regulatory standards, the ASI-MV helps organizations improve efficiency and performance by:

  • Streamlining the assessment process
  • Formulating tailored treatment plans
  • Standardizing data gathering
