SRS Health Helps Specialists Combat the Opioid Crisis with Integrated Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) Checking Solution

Integrated PDMP Checking Delivers 67% Time Savings Over Current Methods

MONTVALE, NJ – March 22, 2018 – SRS Health, provider of intelligent data-based healthcare IT solutions for high-performance specialty practices, proudly announces the launch of the first integrated PDMP checking solution in a specialty EHR. SRS is committed to incorporating clinical workflow efficiencies into its HCIT ecosystem—adding PDMP checking into the e-prescribing workflow is the next critical step in helping clients combat the growing opioid crisis.

This powerful integration improves the physician’s ability to intervene at the earliest signs of controlled substance misuse or abuse while also helping compliance with mandates[1]. Physicians can quickly, and easily, comply with their state’s PDMP regulations.

The benefits of integrated PDMP checking at the point of care include:

  • Improved patient care and safety
  • Significant time savings from increased workflow efficiency
  • Speed for patients when electronically prescribing to pharmacies
  • Documentation in state databases that provider checked patient record

SRS clients will now be able to review and analyze patients’ prescription histories as part of their preferred workflow to identify optimal treatment decisions, improving care, patient health and safety.

“As the opioid crisis continues to negatively impact the country, physicians need a simple, easy, streamlined way to make informed prescribing decisions while ensuring they remain compliant in the ever-changing regulatory landscape. This integrated PDMP checking solution empowers our clients to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their patient care,” said Khal Rai, CEO of SRS Health. “These improvements also support our clients in their quest to improve outcomes and demonstrate quality, which will help secure their reputations as care leaders in their communities.”

SRS is committed to continuing to provide tools to fight this crisis. To keep up with and influence the rapidly changing regulations on PDMP and the opioid crisis, members of the SRS team sit on a number of committees, including the HIMSS EHRA (Electronic Health Record Association) Opioid Crisis Task Force.
