The main point of contact with the health system for most patients is their family practitioner, primary care physician (PCP), or local health clinic. Screening at the point of primary care can lead to early intervention and greater success in treating clients with substance use disorders.
Accountable care is changing the way medicine is delivered and it is in the interest of not only the patient, but also the provider that readmission rates decrease and that the patient be treated holistically. Obviously, substance abuse leads to and exacerbates many health problems and successful addiction treatment will lead to better health. But it may also improve the bottom line for physicians in terms of 3rd party payment rates. In order to provide the best care for your patients, it is important that you have a treatment program in the community that accepts your patient’s insurance and whom you can call to get your patient help right away. But more important than that is that you have a community addiction treatment provider you can trust to provide exceptional care at a great value and who you can depend on to communicate and collaborate with your office for the greater good of the patients.
