Query of PDMP

Updated: 08/16/2023|Views: 1111

For at least one Schedule II opioid or Schedule II or IV drug electronically prescribed using CEHRT during the performance period, the MIPS eligible clinician uses data from CEHRT to conduct a query of a PDMP for prescription drug history, except where prohibited and in accordance with applicable law.

A prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) is an electronic database that tracks controlled substance prescriptions in a state. For more information on Kareo’s PDMP, see Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. To meet this measure, a provider may use a PDMP that is independent of Kareo EHR.

Attestation: Yes / No
Exclusion: Any MIPS eligible clinician meeting one or more of the following criteria may be excluded from the PDMP measure if the MIPS eligible clinician:
  1. Is unable to electronically prescribe Schedule I opioids and Schedule III and IV drugs in accordance with applicable law during the performance period.
  2. Writes fewer than 100 permissible prescriptions during the performance period.
  3. Querying a PDMP would impose an excessive workflow or cost burden prior to the start of the performance period they select in CY 2023.

If an exclusion is claimed, the points will be redistributed to the e-Prescribing measure.

Performance Score Weight: 10 points
