Reducing Physician Burden, Improving Patient Safety: An EHR/PDMP Integration Advocacy Brochure

Since their inception, prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) have proven to be effective in combating prescription drug abuse and misuse nationwide. However, integrating PDMP information, analytics, insights, and resources into electronic health records (EHRs) and pharmacy management system workflows is a critical step in the progression of optimizing PDMP information—and it is happening today. 


This advocacy brochure, developed by the HIMSS HIT UX Committee, is a tool for clinicians to use when advocating internally or externally around this integration.
