The Department of Health (DOH) issued a reminder regarding the Prescription Monitoring Program-Electronic Health Record integration mandate that is currently delayed until Jan. 1, 2022. The mandate applies to facilities, entities, offices or provider groups with 10 or more prescribers, which are not critical access hospitals. According to DOH, “there are currently two ways to integrate a Health Care Organization’s EHR with the PMP: the state’s Health Information Exchange, OneHealthPort (OHP), and approved direct integration options, such as Bamboo Health’s (formerly Appriss Health) PMP Gateway.” DOH also provided instructions for facilities seeking additional information about integration:
- Facilities seeking information on integrating their EHR through OHP can fill out OHP’s HIE Support Request form. For PMP integrations select “Other” in the form and indicate interest in PMP integration. Someone from OHP will reach out after the form has been submitted.
- Facilities seeking more information on integrating their EHR through Bamboo Health’s PMP Gateway should visit the Appriss Health PMP Integration Request page and fill out the form on the right-hand side. Once the form is submitted you will receive an email inviting you to register for a product overview webinar. If you have questions about the integration process or specific questions about PMP Gateway, please reach out to AccountSupport@apprisshealth.com.
