Care Pathways

Addiction Care Pathway

Overview of the care pathway

We can divide the addiction care pathway into 3 phases:

  1. Baseline / pre-treatment
  2. Acute treatment phase
  3. Long-term follow-up after care

The backbone of the care pathway is summarized in the figure below, for this flow we relied mainly on the ICHOM standard set of Patient-Centered Outcome Measures for addiction.



From your EMR to scheduling or billing, Awell easily connects with your systems so you can create powerful clinical guidelines that tie disjointed systems together.


The following patient-reported-outcomes are visualized in the care pathway:

  • PROMIS Short Form v1.0 -Alcohol Use 7a (PROMISAlcohol)
  • PROMIS Short Form v1.0 -Severity of Substance Use(Past 30 Days) 7a (PROMISSubstance)
  • PROMIS Short Form v1.0 -Smoking NicotineDependence for All Smokers8a (PROMIS-Smoking)
  • Heaviness of Smoking Index(HSI)
  • Problem Gambling SeverityIndex (PGSI)
  • Ten-Item Internet GamingDisorder Test (IGDT-10)
  • NHS Treatment OutcomesProfile for Substance Misuse -Section 1 (TOP-S1)
  • Modified Self-AdministeredComorbidity Questionnaire (SCQ)
  • KIDSCREEN-10 Index
  • Substance Use RecoveryEvaluator (SURE)


The addiction care pathway offers numerous benefits that will increase efficiency on the one hand and improve the quality of care for both patient and provider on the other.
