On March 19, 2018, Governor Rick Scott signed House Bill 21 into law permitting authorized users to request and receive information from the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) system through an electronic health record (EHR) system.
E-FORCSE® is collaborating with Appriss Health, the service provider for E-FORCSE®, to provide this integration option to all health care practitioners in the State utilizing a service called PMP Gateway. PMP Gateway facilitates communication, information transfer, integration, and support for the state approval process and the EHR vendor development process.
Connecting through PMP Gateway will enable health care practitioners to query a specific patient’s controlled substance dispensing information within their electronic clinical workflow. This integration will help healthcare practitioners have accurate, relevant and timely PDMP information at the point-of-care to make better informed clinical decisions. In addition, providers who participate in this initiative will also receive NarxCare which is a more robust analytics and prevention tool. This next step with E-FORCSE® will help prescribers and dispensers better assess patient risk and help prevent prescription drug and opioid abuse.
Please note, only authorized decision makers at the healthcare entity should complete the following forms.
- Complete the Integration Request Form located on the right of this page.
- Once submitted, your form will be sent to E-FORCSE® for review.
- Once approved,E-FORCSE® will submit your request to Appriss Health, the PMP Gateway software vendor, to begin the integration.
- Appriss Health will contact you and/or your EHR/pharmacy management system vendor with next steps. Please allow up to 10 business days for this process to complete.
