Prescription Drug Monitoring Program - PAST

The goal of this pilot is to conduct a proof of concept for establishing a standard way to connect and retrieve PDMP data for their clients through their EHRs, using ASAP Web Services and the PMPi HUB; The other goal is to test the standards' limits for accessing data fields specific to PDMP collection (that help identify patient misuse of pain prescriptions) that may conform less well to existing clinical formats for drug histories but should be accommodated by ASAP standards. They have a client in Arizona, a specialty pain center with more than 25 prescribers in one facility, who is willing to participate in the pilot with us, using the implementation guide to connect through their Centricity EHR. They are registered users of the AZ PDMP and the PMPi HUB. PAST completed the NCPDP - PDMP RTM. Prescription Advisory System & Technology is a SaaS company making a clinical decision support tool for pain management practices that consumes PDMP and EHR data for use in presentation of summary information and informatics logic. Their installation process involves connecting to EHRs and PDMPs for data retrieval. As a SaaS company, they have a team of developers who could work on implementing the new standards in a pilot.
