Screenings for Alcohol or other Substance Misuse (SBIRT)
Measure Type: Incentive, Performance, Core 

 

All Ages (12+)

The SBIRT measure, or Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment, measures the percentage of members (ages 12 and older) who had appropriate screening and intervention for alcohol or other substance abuse. 

Quality improvement focus areas

  • Improving primary care for all populations
  • Ensuring appropriate care is delivered in appropriate settings

Purpose

By offering a simple but effective screening for alcohol or drug abuse during an office visit, providers can help patients get the care and information they need to stay healthy. If risky drinking or drug use is detected, a brief intervention, and in some cases referral to additional treatment, helps the patient recover more quickly and avoid serious health problems.
