The Georgia Department of Public Health is teaming up with Appriss Health to integrate the state's prescription drug monitoring program into EHR systems across Georgia.

Appriss Health's PMP Gateway service is a platform that provides prescribers and pharmacists with access to data from PDMPs within their clinical workflows. By adding PMP Gateway to the state's EHR systems, Georgia's public health department aims to increase providers' access to patient information on controlled substance prescriptions.

"Substance use disorder is a public health crisis in Georgia and all across the country," Appriss Health President Rob Cohen said in a news release. "Working together with Georgia's [department of public health] to make the state's PDMP efficiently accessible to all providers statewide enables them with the clinical decision support tools to truly help make an impact on this crisis."
