Small-Care Neighborhood−Opioids Response
Enrollment Status: Full/Closed
About the Program
The Small Care Neighborhood−Opioids Response ("SCN−Opioids") initiative aims to improve the quality and cost of care for Indiana Medicaid by helping two Indiana communities ― Lafayette and Fort Wayne ― respond in a strategic, community-focused way to the opioids epidemic. Small Care Neighborhoods are collaboratives comprised of stakeholders who provide medical and non-medical services that impact the opioids response services in a geographic area. Purdue Healthcare Advisors works within these "neighborhoods" to provide community-building strategy, technical assistance expertise, and process improvement training and coaching.
The Small Care Neighborhood−Opioids Response initiative is funded by the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration through a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services 90/10 matching grant for which Purdue University matches ten percent. Awarded in November of 2018, the effort is funded for two years with the potential for a third-year extension.
