Bamboo Health PDMP Solution Overview
PMP NarxCare® is the PDMP solution for states that provides prescribers and dispensers with accurate, regulation-compliant PDMP data.

PMP Gateway® is the direct connection between PDMPs and EHRS. PMP Gateway enables multi-state, controlled substance data, analytics, and resources within EHRs and pharmacy management systems in real-time, at point-of-care.

NarxCare® is a robust analytics application and clinical decision support tool that helps prescribers and dispensers analyze controlled substance data from prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs), assess overdose risk, and manage substance misuse or substance use disorder (SUD) resulting in more informed prescribing and dispensing decisions.

Combined, our data analytics solutions and bi-directional communication capabilities support whole-person care, improve health outcomes, and reduce healthcare spending.  

Improving patient care with prescription drug monitoring programs
Checking your state’s prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) is essential for safer dispensing. Here are four reasons pharmacies should check their state PDMP to help improve patient care:

  • Supports More Informed Clinical Decisions. PDMPs give healthcare providers and pharmacies a complete controlled substance prescription history for each patient, allowing for more-informed decisions and early interventions.
  • Lowers Rates of Opioid Misuse and Overdose. PDMPs aim to prevent adverse drug-related events such as drug diversion, opioid overdose, and substance abuse – without hampering access to the appropriate medical use of controlled substances.
  • Risk of Adverse Effects Due to Polypharmacy. When patients receive multiple prescriptions from multiple healthcare providers, there is an increased risk of adverse events due to polypharmacy. PDMPs help prevents these types of risks by identifying patients who have been prescribed potentially dangerous combinations of drugs.
  • Saves Lives Through Use of Data. North America has the highest drug-related mortality rate in the world, accounting for 1-in-4 drug-related deaths globally. PDMPs are essential in fighting this opioid crisis - ensuring patients have access to safer, more effective chronic pain treatment and ultimately saving lives daily.

In collaboration with Bamboo Health, Micro Merchant Systems now has pre-built connectivity enabling access to state PDMP and clinical decision support tools within your PrimeRx™ workflow. 

With one-click PDMP access in your pharmacy system workflow, 85% of pharmacists believe they should take an active role in reducing opioid addiction.
