OARS+CM

A Q2i Solution

Cloud-based enterprise-class solution with all the features of Q2i’s OARS technology but includes Q2i’s integrated Contingency Management Module (CMM).

Contingency Management (CM) is a reward-based intervention built on the principles of operant conditioning to promote behavior change and reinforce positive behaviors.

CM delivers tangible monetary-based rewards contingent upon targeted outcomes or behaviors.

CM has demonstrated efficacy for improving abstinence and other substance use disorder (SUD) treatment outcomes in a diverse range of treatment populations and settings.

  • OARS+CM fully automates the calculation and seamless delivery of in-app rewards for targeted behaviors with maximum fidelity.

Impact

“The coronavirus pandemic laid bare the truth that we are still facing an opioid crisis of epic proportions. We are seeing increasing overdoses both nationally and here in Massachusetts, and as the CDC recently reported, drug overdose deaths have skyrocketed during the pandemic. The technology being pursued by Q2i and UMass Medical Center is another much-needed tool in the toolbox to help us work with people suffering from addiction. We need to be able not just to treat folks during their initial overdose, but to connect them with services and help them successfully complete treatment. I applaud Q2i and UMass for the work they are doing to help save lives.”

Dr. Matilde Castiel, Commissioner of Health and Human Services for the City of Worcester

“As an independent and progressive healthcare system focusing on innovative ways to address the opioid crisis, OARS empowers our healthcare team to provide an up-to-date, comprehensive level of care that supports the recovery process for our patients fighting addiction.”

Win Brown – CEO and President of Heywood Medical Group

“The journal lets me share my feelings with the doctors and allows them to see how I am on any given day and reach out to me with positive support.”

Heywood Medical Patient

“OARS is proving to be effective in helping our patients feel more connected with their healthcare team and is enabling us to better support our patients with their recovery program.”

Dr. Katherine Fitzgerald – Suboxone/recovery clinic, Heywood Primary Care

“We are thrilled to add CASA to our toolkit,” Felecia Pullen, President of Let’s Talk SAFETY, Inc., a not-for-profit which includes The PILLARS

“Not only will CASA let us strengthen our connection with the people in recovery who come through our doors every day – so these folks will feel more supported and be less vulnerable to relapse – but it will also let us better monitor how our members are doing week-to-week, and really close the treatment feedback loop.”

“Our hope is that the OARS app will provide our multidisciplinary healthcare team with actionable data that will result in increased levels of insight and improve communication with our patients.”

Peter Kelleher, CEO of the PSL agencies

“As the epidemic of opioid addiction continues to escalate the impact and public threat to our community increases, I’m encouraged to see that utilizing technology like OARS is successfully helping our city tackle this national crisis at a local level.”

Mark Hawke, Mayor of Gardner

“We invested in OARS because we think it will help us treat more patients more effectively throughout their recovery program, and ultimately reduce overdose incidences and relapses.”

Dr. Cathleen London of Door to Door Doctors

“With the Q2i OARS/MATRA solution, we’ll be able to help more patients achieve a full recovery from OUD.”

Dr. Katherine Fitzgerald, Primary Care Physician at a Suboxone/Recovery Clinic in Gardner, MA, who has been using OARS for over a year

“The CASA application will allow our Recovery Coaches and Recoverees to communicate in real time. They will be able to share resources, remind recoverees of scheduled appointments, locate self-help meetings, and connect individuals with others pursuing a sober lifestyle,”
