Notes
  • Delivering the PDMP information through the HIE (secured) to me should be in the priority of ONC. Imagine, how it will reduce Healthcare Costs and save lives. Dr. Motashari should keep thsi as number 1 priority and can pretty much be in the S&I framework

  8. 8. Opioid analgesics involved in more than 40% of drug poisoning deaths in 2008. 1Opioid analgesics include natural and semi-synthetic opioid analgesics (for example, morphine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone) and synthetic opioid analgesics (for example, methadone and fentanyl). Some deaths in which the drug was poorly specified or unspecified may involve opioid analgesics.SOURCE: CDC/NCHS, National Vital Statistics System
  9. 9. The ProblemThe CDC* has declared that the U.S. is in the midst of anepidemic of prescription painkiller overdose deaths. Deathsfrom these drugs now outnumber deaths from heroin andcocaine combined.*Centers  for  Disease  Control    and  Preven2on
  10. 10. Challenges•  In 2010, an estimated 22.1 million persons– 8.7% of the U.S. population aged 12 or older -- were classified with substance abuse or dependence. –  2.2 million reported past year dependence or abuse of psychotherapeutics (non-medical use) – 1.9 million of them for pain relievers•  20.4% persons reported non-medical use of psychotherapeutics at sometime during their lifetime – 13.7% reporting non-medical use of pain relievers, and•  2 million people (12 or older) initiated illicit use of pain relievers during 2010, second only to those who initiated marijuana use (2.4 million)
  11. 11. Federal Strategy to Address the Problem of Prescription Drug Abuse•  Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan released by the White House in April 2011 announced Federal requirements that provide a national framework for reducing prescription drug abuse and the diversion of prescription drugs through education, tracking and monitoring, safe and appropriate disposal, and enforcement.•  The response to prescription drug abuse requires the collaboration between Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, Defense, and others.
  12. 12. Four Major Areas of the 2011 Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan•  Educating patients and health care providers•  Increasing use of prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs)•  Implementing and promoting use of prescription drug disposal programs•  Supporting law enforcement efforts against illegal prescribing
  13. 13. SAMHSA’s Strategic Initiatives•  Prevention of Substance Abuse & Mental Illness•  Trauma and Justice•  Military Families – Active, Guard, Reserve, and Veteran•  Health Reform•  Housing and Homelessness•  Jobs and the Economy•  Health Information Technology for Behavioral Health Providers•  Data Quality and Outcomes – Demonstrating Results
  14. 14. ONC’s Strategic PlanGoals:•  Achieve adoption and information exchange through meaningful use of health IT •  Support health IT adoption and information exchange in long-term/post-acute care, behavioral health and emergency settings.•  Improve care, improve population health, and reduce health care costs through the use of health IT•  Inspire confidence and trust in health IT•  Empower individuals with health IT to improve their health and health care system•  Achieve rapid learning and technological advancement
  15. 15. Learning Objectives:1.  Explain the purpose and scope of Prescription Monitoring Programs.2.  Outline Prescription Monitoring Programs as an additional tool in the management of patients with substance-related disorders.3.  Describe details about a current government initiative that aims to enhance access to Prescription Monitoring Programs.
  16. 16. What is a PDMP?•  Prescription Drug Monitoring Program•  Established by State Law•  Requires Prescription dispensers to report PHI to central State Database.•  Prescribers, dispensers, law enforcement (w/ restrictions) can access•  Solicited request – from prescriber, etc.•  Unsolicited – from system to prescriber
  17. 17. How Can PMPs Reduce Rx Drug Abuse•  Providers can have access to timely patient information on prescribed drugs –  Use during visit –  Build into treatment plan –  Screen, refer to treatment
  18. 18. Federal Programs•  Harold Rogers Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (Department of Justice)•  National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting Program (NASPER) (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration)
  19. 19. Issue•  Currently data is trapped within PDMPs, creating a situation in which information is not going where it needs to go in time for it to be of use.

  21. 21. ONC-SAMHSA Project•  Enhancing Access to Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs –  Use health IT to increase timely access to PDMP data in an effort to reduce prescription drug misuses and overdoses. •  Develop the standards and policies necessary to connect existing health information technologies to increase timely use of PDMP data by providers, emergency department providers, and pharmacists.
  22. 22. Project Objectives Connect PDMPs to health IT systems using existing technologies Improve timely access to PDMP data Establish standards for facilitating information exchangeReduce prescription drug misuses and overdoses in the United States
  23. 23. 2-Part Project•  Work groups will convene to develop and recommend the standards and policies necessary to carry out the pilot projects.•  Pilot studies will test the feasibility of leveraging health information technology and HIEs to improve timely access to PDMP data.
  24. 24. Work GroupsNumber/Name Purpose1: Data Content and To determine the data content and vocabulary necessary to supportVocabulary data exchange between Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP) and recipients.2: Information Usability To determine how PDMP information will be presented in the userand Presentation interfaces for pharmacy systems and provider and ED Electronic Health Records (EHR) to maximize the value of this data for the treatment and dispensing decision-making processes.3: Transport and To explore and develop the technical specifications for dataArchitecture transmission (e.g., REST, SOAP, Direct) between PDMPs and a variety of recipient systems and intermediaries.4: Law and Policy To explore legal and policy issues in support of program objectives, including PDMP data access within various recipient settings, use of intermediaries to enable PDMP data exchange and specific Pilot Program scenarios in the context of specific state(s).5: Business Agreements To analyze the current business environment relevant to the use offor Intermediaries intermediaries (e.g., Switches, HIEs) to route transmissions between PDMPs and data recipients.
  25. 25. Recipients of PDMP Data•  Three communities have been identified that have the potential to make clinical decisions about prescribing
  26. 26. Leveraging Health IT•  Improve access to PDMP information at the point of patient care•  Use existing technologies to facilitate exchange of information: –  Electronic Health Record Systems –  Unsolicited messaging (Direct) –  Query-based messaging –  Switches –  Health Information Exchanges –  Other intermediaries•  We are also open to new approaches to enhancing access to PDMP data
