ARCH Team Implementation Fidelity Study

This study will determine if the Addiction Recovery & Community Health (ARCH) team delivers care to patients in the ways intended by the Inner City Health and Wellness Program (ICHWP) directors. We will review health records to estimate the number times ARCH clinicians interact with patients and to identify the specific types of care they provide. We will use the results to describe the work of the ARCH team as it is currently carried out, identify priority areas, and make recommendations for improvements.
