The Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology has awarded ESAC, Inc. a contract to support the balloting of the PDMP Health IT systems.
November 9, 2016
Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) collects information on all filled prescriptions for controlled substances to help prevent prescription drug abuse and protect the health and safety of our community. This information helps health care providers safely prescribe controlled substances and helps patients get the right treatment they need. One way to improve and encourage PDMP access is to reduce the number of steps it takes to access the PDMP. Health IT systems can accomplish this by querying PDMPs for prescription information and presenting this information to health care professionals when they access a patient’s health record. The purpose of this initiative is to identify an appropriate standards development organization (SDO) to ballot and maintain the technical specifications finalized in the S&I Framework PDMP & HIT Integration Initiative Implementation Guide are successfully balloted by a recognized SDO.
ESAC's technical savvy and personable staff provides tremendous value to projects involving multi-center coordination and high dimensional data management. They merge a fundamental understanding of biology with expertise in data quality control and data security. Integrating all of these factors is key to delivering a secure and fast data portal for the scientific community.
