Peer Support Makes the Difference in Treating Opioid Use Disorder

Parkview Health of Ft. Wayne, Ind., came in first in AHA’s 2018 Innovation Challenge with bold new thinking about the best way to treat opioid use disorder patients. Its model features peer coaching via a mobile app that is designed to support patients anywhere and in the moment. In this podcast, AHA’s Dr. Jay Bhatt speaks with Parkview Health president Ben Miles about his organization’s approach - and why peer support and encouragement can be such an effective tool in the battle against addiction. Sponsored in part by First American Healthcare Finance, the AHA’s Innovation Challenge is a juried award program to source and spread new ideas and novel approaches for integrated care delivery.
