The NIATx Model Works...
...because it is doable, customer-focused, gets change teams engaged,
and produces real results quickly.

Case Study: APT Foundation, Inc.
To address the growing opioid epidemic, the APT Foundation, Inc. entered a nine-year study in July 2006 using the NIATx rapid-cycle model to improve treatment access and program outcomes. Since the initial study, APT has continued to use the NIATx model to sustain results and navigate current treatment challenges associated with COVID-19.
Based on data collected through routine quality assessment, this open-access model appears to improve treatment access, capacity, and financial sustainability without evidence of deleterious effects on treatment outcomes. In addition, APT has found the changes implemented to respond to COVID-19 have allowed the facility to continue providing treatment to patients and, in several cases, have improved treatment approaches, particularly for those with access disparities
