Our Projects

covid testResources for Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We recognize that practices may be overwhelmed with COVID-19, and our projects may not be a priority. We trust you to use your best judgment on balancing the needs of the practice. Practices may choose not to meet with the PTO and focus their energy on preparedness efforts, or they may choose to meet with the PTO for our projects and use coaching to help them prepare.

Closing the Treatment Gap for Opioid Use Disorder in Colorado

On average, someone dies in Colorado from an opioid-related overdose every 15 hours. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is more effective at keeping individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) in treatment than detoxification or counseling without medication. The FHPC and Practice Innovation Program @CU conducted a study to identify where there is insufficient buprenorphine treatment provision to meet the needs of Coloradans, calculate the workforce changes necessary to fill these treatment gaps, and offer recommendations to enable targeted resource allocation and better access to care for individuals with OUD.
