Validation of the TAPS-Electronic Spanish Platform (TAPS-ESP): A Technology to Improve Access to Substance Use Screening and Reduce Behavioral Health Disparities in Hispanic Primary Care Patients
The TAPS Tool is a screening and brief assessment tool to detect unhealthy substance use in primary care. Building on our prior work to develop a Spanish language version of the TAPS Tool in a technology platform (the TAPS-ESP), in this study we will
- integrate the TAPS-ESP into the existing health information technology infrastructure of a large healthcare system,
- conduct a rigorous large-scale validation study of the TAPS-ESP, and
- examine barriers and facilitators of real-world implementation from a provider workflow perspective.
