In rural or isolated communities across the United States, people exhibiting mental health and/or substance abuse disorders face substantial challenges in accessing and receiving high-quality and effective behavioral healthcare services. In this Phase I research project, ORI scientist Tim Ozechowski, Ph.D., and his team are developing a secure, cloud-based, modular framework and electronic infrastructure with multilingual capabilities for behavioral healthcare information management and exchange.

This research addresses barriers to behavioral health and substance abuse treatment for rural communities by building a flexible, secure, and efficient web-based portal for use by patients and their doctors.

This grant is a subcontract with Waldron International, LLC from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
