To help prevent prescription drug abuse, as well as protect the health and safety of our communities, the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) collects information on all filled prescriptions for controlled substances. This information will then assist health care providers to safely prescribe controlled substances and allows patients to get the treatment they need.
This prescription drug information has been integrated into the ChartMaker® Clinical system to allow for easy access, as well as minimize workflow disruption, to provide near-instant and seamless access to critical prescription history information, thereby allowing you to make more informed decisions when prescribing medications (specifically controlled substances) for patients.
PDMP integration is currently available for Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Do note, that some states fund this program, while others do not. For those states where there is not state funding, an enrollment fee may be charged by Appriss Health.
