K-TRACS Gateway Integration Request Form

K-TRACS BOARD OF PHARMACY STATEWIDE INTEGRATION

The Kansas State Board of Pharmacy (Board), in conjunction with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), is pleased to announce a new partnership with Appriss Health to provide interoperability services for all prescribers and pharmacists in Kansas to access K-TRACS, the Kansas Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, through the PDMP Gateway®.

The project is funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control awarded to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

The Board will begin to model this integration statewide which will increase availability, ease of access, and use of a patient’s controlled substance prescription history for making critical and informed prescribing and dispensing decisions. Currently, prescribers and pharmacists log in to separate systems to query patient data which takes valuable time away from patient care and interaction. This integration simplifies the process by creating a one-stop-shop, making K-TRACS data directly available in the patient’s electronic record.

Integrations must be approved by the Board and will require reporting to the Board regarding such connections.

Integration Process:
  1. Follow the instructions and complete ALL of the following (only authorized decision makers at the healthcare entity should fill out these forms):
    • Integration Request Form (located on the right of this page)
    • Terms and Conditions (emailed to you within 24 hours)
    • PMP Gateway Licensee Questionnaire (emailed within 24 hours)
  2. Appriss Health will contact you and/or your EHR/pharmacy management system vendor with next steps.
