In collaboration with the University of Washington School of Medicine, we received a $1.96M small business innovation research award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The award will fund the second phase of a project that aims to revolutionize methadone treatment by expanding access through our video Directly Observed Therapy (video DOT) technology.
This award will continue the work of clinical investigators Drs. Judith Tsui and Kevin Hallgren at the University of Washington School of Medicine to evaluate video DOT’s impact on clinical outcomes and assess implementation factors on a larger scale. The project’s findings will also inform the evidence-based policy changes required to extend the use of video DOT technology for remote monitoring of methadone maintenance therapy.
