Yale connects Epic EHR to Connecticut PDMP

Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine, both based in New Haven, Conn., integrated their EHRs with the state prescription drug monitoring program.

The PDMP, called Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System, was designed to help providers access patient information about opioid prescriptions to reduce prescription misuse. However, physicians previously had to access the PDMP through a separate system from their EHR, which had different logins.

The integrated system — which Yale implemented with the State of Connecticut and the PDMP analytics provider Appriss Health — enables physicians to identify patients at high risk for adverse events and overdose from within their Epic EHR workflow.
