- About Us
Whether in a clinic or the ER, clinicians on the front lines of an opioid epidemic need quick and easy access to their state’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) without disrupting their EMR workflow.
Smartlink Data Connector (SDC) offers a new, innovative connection approach that can auto query the state’s PDMP at the time a patient is scheduled for a clinic visit or upon registration in the ER. If there’s a patient match and opioid use exceeds a specific clinical threshold, a banner is created on the patient record in the EMR to alert the team.
The rate of opioid-related ER visits and hospitalizations are on the rise, but it’s not just because of overdoses. Chronic drug users use 30% more emergency healthcare services than the general population for a host of other medical reasons such as invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD),
bronchitis, colds, flu, severe constipation, accidents/unintentional injuries, chronic medical conditions, drug-seeking behavior, and more.
Automating the PDMP query at the beginning of a treatment encounter is a simple prevention step that can lead to significant financial savings – not to mention improved clinical outcomes.
Looking for a full-service solution that combines technology with a proven intervention methodology? We’ve got one.
Smartlink Health and Blaze Advisors have partnered together to offer a comprehensive protocol called, CONVERT that assesses rising risk opiate users who are then bridged to outpatient treatment via peer support.
