From their experience, learn how to integrate Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) into your Electronic Health Record and billing system, and how to get paid for SBIRT in hospitals, emergency departments and outpatient hospital practices and clinics. SBIRT enables providers and hospitals to treat patients plus allows for coding/billing to operate seamlessly.
