Description: The Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Wellness Tracker is an evidence-based model of care funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The software is a web-based, data collection system that implements evidence-based substance abuse screening practices. The Wellness Tracker is deployed on a server and accessed by patients via a tablet system. The software provides patients a digital solution for filling out SBIRT questionnaires. The SBIRT questionnaire targets the patient`s use, abuse, and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs. The software uses a logic branching algorithm that automatically skips questions that do not apply and expands upon sections that need additional follow-up. The patient`s responses are automatically scored, and all data is immediately captured in a database. Patient responses may then be utilized by clinicians in determining an assessment of whether the patient screens positive or negative for alcohol or drug use.

Data collected by this software is stored in a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database.

Note: The vendor does not have a dedicated website for the SBIRT Wellness Tracker.
