Who We Are
Dr. Lynch is the creator of New York MATTERS. This program works to provide efficient buprenorphine training to emergency physicians and create linkages between the hospital and substance use treatment programs. He serves as a technical advisor for the Erie County and New York State Departments of Health. He and his team are proud to have received over 1 million dollars in grant funding to support the MATTERS program and widely expand access to high-quality addictions care. The team is also greatly appreciative to our partners at the New York State Department of Health for the contributions to the electronic referral platform.
The New York MATTERS referral process is completely electronic. A healthcare professional and the patient work together to complete the referral form in about 3-5 minutes. ZERO phone calls have to be made from the site of referral! Watch a live demonstration of how to complete a referral below.
