Enhancing Access to Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs through Health Information Technology: Work Group RecommendationsJoin us for a Webinar on Thursday, October 11 at 1:00 p.m. EDTPrescription drug misuse and overdose is one of the fastest growing health epidemics. The goal of the Enhancing Access to PDMPs Project was to use health information technology (IT) to increase timely access to prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) data in an effort to reduce prescription drug misuse and overdose.
Work Groups were convened comprising individuals from the healthcare community, industry, trade and advocacy groups, and state and federal government. The diverse set of members relied on their knowledge and expertise to develop recommendations and products that will increase the usefulness and availability of PDMP information. The purpose of the webinar is to present these recommendations and products.
A report of these recommendations and is currently under review with the Federal sponsors. This document will be released once it is approved.
Background of project:
The Enhancing Access to PDMPs Project stems from joint efforts of the stakeholder experts that participated in the White House Roundtable on health IT and Prescription Drug Abuse (June 3, 2011) and the Prescription Drug Abuse and Health IT Work Group of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Behavioral Health Coordinating Committee that resulted in the Action Plan for Improving Access to Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs through Health Information Technology.
MITRE was awarded a contract by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. The project is managed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
