The Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) has announced a request for proposals (RFP) in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the Maternal and Infant Network to Understand Outcomes Associated with Treatment for Opioid Use During Pregnancy (MAT-LINK). The goal of MAT-LINK is to establish a surveillance network to collect data on maternal, infant and child health outcomes associated with treatments for opioid use disorder during pregnancy. The purpose of the RFP is to award clinical sites that have the ability to integrate or link maternal and newborn data and the authority to access and share these data with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The deadline for sites to submit their proposals by is November 15 at 5:00pm ET. On October 10, PHII will hold a pre-proposal webinar for interested sites to join and ask questions they may have as they’re drafting their proposals.
