Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a deadly illness that remains undertreated, despite effective pharmacological treatments.

Software-delivered measurement-based care (MBC) is one way to increase treatment access. MBC uses systematic patient symptom assessments to inform an algorithm to support clinicians at critical decision points.
