Prescription drug overdose will claim 30,000 lives in the US this year. State-run prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) have emerged as a powerful tool to fight prescription drug abuse, reduce doctor-shopping, and save lives. 17 states (and counting) now mandate that practitioners screen patients using the database before prescribing controlled substances. While effective, PDMPs create a significant administrative burden for providers, involving resource-intensive and time-consuming manual data entry.
AffirmHealth resolves the provider challenge by automating the patient prescription drug monitoring screening process and delivering meaningful reporting to a single, easily accessible portal.
For providers, AffirmHealth:
Enhances patient care
Supports regulatory compliance
Keeps the practice operating efficiently
