Board Announces Electronic Health Record Integration of Prescription Data

The West Virginia Board of Pharmacy announces a partnership with Appriss Health to utilize, analyze and present information from West Virginia’s Controlled Substances Monitoring Program (CSMP) into the clinical workflow of both prescribers and pharmacists via the comprehensive platform NarxCare.

All practitioners who dispense Schedule II, III, IV and V controlled substances or opioid antagonists to residents of West Virginia must provide the dispensing information to the West Virginia Board of Pharmacy CSMP each 24-hour period.  RxDataTrack/CSAPP is the online SCMP software (Mahantech Corp.) used by the Board to track these substances.

NarxCare will integrate this CSMP  information, as well as additional date sources, into Electronic Health Records of Pharmacy Management Systems to empower clinicians to identify patients that may be at risk for prescription drug addiction, overdose and death, and equips those clinician and care teams with the advanced analytics, tools and technology they need to help those patient.  These invaluable insights and tools can be presented and accessed within clinical workflow, up front, for every patient, every time.

NarxCare provides machine learning and artificial intelligence-based risk scores, prescription data, patient safety alerts and other information in a visually interactive format to help prescribers and pharmacists quickly identify potential signs of addiction[overdose.

NarxCare also helps clinicians connect patients with additional resources within their community if needed, such as medication-assisted treatment.

By obtaining CSMP prescription information through PMP Gateway, which can include data from neighboring states, this one-click workflow process eliminates the need for prescribers and pharmacists to manually log into the WV SCMP website separately and then enter a patien’s name and demographics to search for them.

The new NarCare platform will be made available at no cost to all West Virginia healthcare providers via their electronic health records and pharmacy management system vendors.  (It is important to note that not all vendors are currently integrated.  Your integration process and duration time is dependent upon your vendor.)  For more detailed information about the integration process, please visit:
