Suboxone (buprenorphine-naloxone) Orders

Hi, all -
Looking to get some insight on how other sites have configured their CPOE systems for Suboxone.

-Do providers select a specific strength and order in terms of numbers of "film"?
-Do providers order in terms of "mg" or "mg of buprenorphine"?
-Have any Epic users started using the new functionality allowing IMS for combination drugs?

Appreciate your thoughts!
