PDMP Checking and Gateway Integration

Posted 6 months ago

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE IDAHO STATE BOARD OF PHARMACY 

I hope this message finds of you well. I wanted to make you aware of the message that was sent on the prescriber reports Last week. It was the first message letting prescribers know of what is in the pipeline for summer and fall in preparation for mandatory PDMP checking. The PDMP staff at the BOP is currently working on the rollout of the statewide gateway to make mandatory checking more palatable and less of a burden on prescribers.

This is the message in the header: 

2020 Legislative update: The 2020 Idaho legislature passed, and Governor Little signed senate bill 1348 that requires prescribers to check the PDMP.  The mandatory check requirement will go into effect on  10/1/2020.  In preparation for this implementation date, the Idaho Board of Pharmacy is initiating statewide Gateway integration. Providers and healthcare facilities that have already integrated Gateway into their workflow express satisfaction with the ease and convenience of being able to access the PDMP in this way.  There will be no charge to providers or facilities to connect. Interfaces are already built for 130 hospital, pharmacy and clinic software programs. More information will be made available in the coming weeks to assist with enrollment.  We look forward to working with you as Gateway integration rolls out across the state.  If you have questions about the Gateway integration process please contact Teresa Anderson at Teresa.anderson@bop.idaho.gov.  Questions relating to mandatory checking can be sent to Board of Pharmacy Executive Director, Nicki Chopski at Nicki.chopski@bop.idaho.gov 

Thanks,

Nicki
