SAN DIEGO, CA, November 9, 2020 — VetsEZ, the prime contractor supporting the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), announced the full national production release of the State Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) solution to combat the Veterans’ Opioid Crisis. This statewide release comes following the success of initial releases at two VA Medical Centers.
VetsEZ led the successful PDMP deployment with support from partners J2 Interactive, Appriss Health, and Mind Computing. The deployment marks a major milestone for the VA in enhancing the existing manual PDMP process, fulfilling the MISSION Act Section 134, which allows the VA to participate in the national network of State-based prescription drug monitoring programs.
These programs arm healthcare providers with the necessary information to improve patient safety and the overall quality of care. Providers now have the ability to query all available states and territories to get complete and cohesive controlled substance prescription history to help better treat their patients.
