The Project

IT MATTTRs Colorado (Implementing Technology and Medication Assisted Treatment and Team Training in Rural Colorado) is a response to the repeated calls from rural primary care in Colorado to address patient care for opioid use disorder (OUD).  IT MATTTRs Colorado, through the High Plains Research Network (HPRN) and Colorado Research Network (CaReNet), is working to increase access to treatment of OUD by training providers on medication assisted treatment (MAT), training the entire practice team staff on MAT for OUD, and increasing community knowledge of opioids, opioid use disorder, and medication assisted treatment.
