Who is Appriss Health? 

Appriss Health provides pharmacies with timely, compliant, efficient prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) solutions that enable earlier intervention and facilitate collaboration with healthcare providers and other pharmacies.

In collaboration with state governments, we built the nation’s most comprehensive, standards-driven data integration platform to combat the nation’s opioid epidemic. Our platform manages more than 400 million daily transactions and connects states, prescribers, pharmacies, and hospitals across the U.S. It enables seamless in-workflow visibility to patients’ prescription drug history and a comprehensive solution that improves access to needed care for people with behavioral health conditions and social determinants of health challenges. 

Our real-time clinical decision support and insights are integrated into the workflows of more than 130 electronic health records and every national pharmacy chain. Combined, our data analytics solutions and bi-directional communication capabilities support whole-person care, improve health outcomes and reduce overall healthcare spending. 

What is a PDMP?

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP), also known in some states as Prescription Monitoring Programs (PMP), are state-managed electronic databases that track controlled substance prescriptions.

Here are four reasons pharmacies should use their state PDMP:

  • Supports More Informed Clinical Decisions: PDMPs give healthcare providers and pharmacies a complete controlled substance prescription history for each patient, allowing opportunities for better-informed decisions and early interventions.
  • Lowers Rates of Opioid Misuse, Abuse, and Overdose: PDMPs aim to prevent adverse drug-related events such as drug diversion, opioid overdose, and substance abuse – without hampering access to the appropriate medical use of controlled substances.
  • Reduces Risk of Adverse Effects Due to Polypharmacy: When patients receive multiple prescriptions from multiple healthcare providers, there is an increased risk of adverse events due to polypharmacy. PDMPs help prevent these types of risks by identifying patients who have been prescribed potentially dangerous combinations of drugs.
  • Saves Lives Through Use of Data: North America has the highest drug-related mortality rate in the world, accounting for 1-in-4 drug related deaths globally. * PDMPs are an essential tool in fighting this opioid crisis - ensuring patients have access to safer, more effective chronic pain treatment and ultimately saving lives every day.
