Hi Tom Nice to see you vitually!

Dr. Rich, such a great point. We are incredibly concerned about this as well.
Could Dr. Rich provide the reference supporting the telephone inductions? I would like to emphasize this to BCBSRI participating providers during my weekly pandemic response conference calls.
Thank you Traci
As a Senator, here are many who have asked about the status of legislation that ay be priorities to participants of this taskforce. There is no date for a reconvening of the legislature, and when we do return, it could be for the state budget only. So if you have apiority that is not in the budget, let me and most importantly, others, that there is important other work that needs to be done
Thank you Sen. Miller
We will be launching a 24h buprenorphine induction hotline, I will distribute that phone number as soon as it is ready!
Recovery Friendly Workplace Initiative is still operating. If you know any employers who have time to explore it, please have them visit www.RecoveryFriendlyRI.com for more information, or email me at Jonathan@recoveryfriendlyri.com
RIDOH and BHDDH are also putting together a provider database of who is providing tele-bupe that can be use to link people to
Linda, are you able to share the full list of providers that have immediate openings for MAT? I know you had 2 listed on your slide, but if there are more, this info would be helpful to share w/ the health plan case managers as well.
Will do!! We'll be offering a call line that will help streamline the connections coming forward. Stay tune
When our 24h bupe induction hotline is up, I will disseminate the info out to the list! Great and inspiring work everyone!!
