Mosaic Fast Track initiation and referral is an integral component of the Mosaic Group’s comprehensive system of care coordination. When a patient screens positive for opioid use disorder or is brought to the Emergency Department with a suspected opioid overdose, a nurse indicates this in their electronic health record which triggers notification to a trained peer recovery coach.
For patients that are interested in initiating treatment, the peer recovery coach supports them through buprenorphine induction right in the Emergency Department. The Mosaic Group has worked with eleven hospital systems in Baltimore to develop induction dosage protocols and to operationalize a network of over twenty-five Fast Track buprenorphine providers for same- or next-day referrals to ongoing care.
