Best Practices for Patient Searches in PMP Aware To get the best search results in Aware, please consider this best practice: 1. Search with only a Patient’s first name, last name and date of birth. Adding additional information may restrict the search and limit the results. 2. To trigger a fuzzy logic search (nicknames, common use of formal names or misspellings), add the patient’s zip code to the search. 3. Expand the date range for the search. Searches are based on the date the prescription was delivered to the patient. New PMP System Announced After more than three years of planning, a new PMP system will be available on Aug 30, 2016. OBN contracted with Appriss Inc to host and operate the PMP Web Portal, adding more than 80 enhancements to the current system. Funding for the program was provided by federal grants from the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) via our partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Health’s Injury Prevention Services. Oklahoma remains a national leader in establishing innovative strategies to reduce prescription drug abuse. We recommend checking this website frequently for detailed information about the new system.

Legislative Changes                

As of November 2015, the Oklahoma Legislature enacted HB 1948 mandating that all practitioners who write controlled prescriptions for opioids, benzodiazepines or Soma check the PMP. There are exceptions for Hospice, long term nursing facilities and end-of-life care. State licensing boards are responsible for enforcing this provision and setting policy. Please contact your licensing board for questions and guidance. Other changes in the bill include providing access to the PMP by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the Board of Nursing and Board of Examiners in Optometry. As a result, nine professional licensing boards now have access to the PMP. In addition, one of the most significant amendments to the legislations allows access to the PMP system by federal practitioners. Finally, the bill requires that OBN provide a list of the top twenty prescribers to each of the licensing boards. A web application has been provided to the boards for compliance checks and identification of the top prescribers.
