The Idaho Rural Opioid Prevention and Pharmacy Education Stewardship Project is supported with generous funding from HRSA. I-ROPPES will create better systems of care for individuals with opioid use disorder and their families by linking primary care, law enforcement, community resources, and other services in rural areas across Idaho. It creates a net and does not rely on a single solution to fight the opioid epidemic.


The Weiser Rural Outreach Telehealth Expansion – Behavioral Health is a HRSA funded. WROTE-BH is a pilot system of care designed to keep rural emergency rooms empowered to make the best decisions for patients in crisis by working with local and regional partners to coordinate services and ensure providers, patients, and their families are taken care of from presentation, to treatment, to home.


The Arkansas Lives Network of Care is funded through an award through HRSA. This project is  partnership between C-WHO and Arkansas Behavioral Health Integration Network. The project is a chance for primary care practices and partners to link together to develop enhanced resources and systems to prevent and manage suicide in rural Arkansas.


The Arkansas Rural Opioid Use Team and Treatment  is generously funded by HRSA. This project is tackling the significant burden of opioid use disorder in rural Arkansas. The project aims to improve prevention, treatment, and management skills related to OUD for primary care teams as a means of increasing the capacity of the system to better manage current patients and prevent the condition in others.


The Pride in Idaho Care Neighborhoods (PiICN) is generously funded through the Cambia Health Foundation. C-WHO has partnered with Valor Health to pilot a model of coordinated and whole person care to marginalized patient populations in rural areas. The demonstration is based on the question, “How can we deliver appropriate, inclusive, and safe care together with our partners?”. The findings of the project will be scaled to serve as a roadmap for other communities across the country.

Helping the Helpers

The Helping the Helpers project is funded through Pfizer. COVID-19 has shaken the healthcare system to its core. While our healthcare heroes work to care for all communities across the country, we recognize that we need to care for the providers and care teams who sacrifice day in and day out. With generous funding from Pfizer, C-WHO has developed a training series focused on resources for care providers amid this unprecedented crisis.

PacificSource CHEMS

PacificSource CHEMS, funded by PacificSource, provides focused training to EMS and other first response agencies on Suicide Intervention, Mental Health, and Community Based responses.  Training is delivered by highly skilled trainers, who have also worked in first responder settings and focuses on providing end users with skills they can use as soon as they leave the training.


Rural Emergent Alternative Surgical Opioid Non-Use, funded by HRSA, provides expert-guided education focused on opioid-sparing analgesia guidelines to health care providers, patients, and families to mitigate surgically-gated opioid use disorder at one-year follow-up. A standard of care will be developed for providers, patients, and parents/legal guardians to communicate with surgeons and anesthesiologists on how to request non-opioid surgical options.


Durable Data Idaho Resource Center Services, funded by  PacificSource, is the development of a novel data management technical assistance so that small, independent, and rural practices own their data and can use it in a meaningful way. The project leverages existing resources and information to support practices in the development of a common data platform and management system and allow providers and their team to own the data that has the power to change patient lives.


The Rural Integrated Behavioral Health Hub Network’s, funded by HRSA, goal is to build the existing Idaho Integrated Behavioral Health Network (IIBHN) into an enduring structure for three regional hubs that serve as capacity-building platforms for the systematic integration of behavioral health into rural primary care clinics and practices.  It aims to increase the number of trained integrated behavioral health providers to improve clinical skills, best practices, local resources, and regional/national training opportunities.


The Marimn Health Idaho Integrated Clinical Pharmacy Rural Network project is generously funded by HRSA. The project’s goal is to expand and transform the delivery of clinical pharmacy services, enhancing the way patients, providers and care teams approach pharmaceutical therapy in northern Idaho.  This is transformative work for patients living in such geographically remote region, and for providers struggling to connect patients to clinical pharmacy resources.


The Greater Rural Idaho Telehealth Team Expansion (GRITTE) Project aims to expand access to critical behavioral health services and treatment resources in rural under-served communities across Idaho. Over the next 5 years, the GRITTE Project will work to develop a sustainable Direct to Consumer (DTC) service network and tele-behavioral service delivery model to reduce the barriers to accessing behavioral health in your community and catchment area.
