Who administers the SBIRT screening to the patient?

  • Staff member rooming the patient asks the patient the SBIRT prescreen questions once per year
  • Answers are entered directly in the EMR (distinct data fields)
  • Positive screening results on the SBIRT questions require additional action.
    • Positive SBIRT requires the administration of the ASSIST assessment developed by the World Health Organization and ideally is performed by the behavioral health consultant to determine if further action is needed. This is done in the eSBIRT system.
