STATEWIDE INTEGRATION

PMP Gateway Logo  

 

The Minnesota Board of Pharmacy (BOP), through grants received from federal government and other state agencies, is providing a state-wide license to enable one-click access to view Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) reports into approved Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Pharmacy Dispensing Software systems using Bamboo Health's PMP Gateway Solution from September 1, 2020 through September 30, 2022.

Through integration, your EHR or PDS, when prompted by an authorized account holder, will initiate a patient PMP search, using credentials and patient demographic information within your EHR or PDS, immediately returning a view of the patient’s controlled substance prescription history report, without leaving the clinical workflow.  Integration will continue to provide access to the NarxCare analytics tool and care management platform, which helps prescribers and dispensers analyze PMP data and manage substance use disorder.

Information from Bamboo Health regarding Gateway and NarxCare can be found by clicking the links below:
