Developed Compliance Plan for Practice Re Controlled Substance Prescribing

Professional:
Medical Practice

Primary Issue:
In April 2017, Michigan integrated the Michigan Automated Prescription System (“MAPS”) with Appriss Health’s prescription monitoring program (“PMP”), NarxCare. The newly integrated system creates score to allow practitioners to evaluate treatment plans with their patients. These scores measure, narcotics, sedatives, and stimulants prescribed to a patient and NarxCare also develops an overdose risk score (“ORS”) meant to function as “a predictive score for unintentional overdose death.” A physician was utilizing the new system and was concerned about the scores he was seeing for some of his patients and wanted a compliance review of his practice to determine whether his treatment plans were appropriate and to better his practice to hold up to review.

Result:
After reviewing his medical records, the functionality of his electronic medical records (“EMR”) system and the relevant guidelines from state and national organizations and relevant state and federal laws and regulations, we provided an opinion to him on what he did well, were he could improve on, and were he needed to improve on and developed a compliance plan for him to follow to better stand up to any regulatory review of his practice. By doing so, we were able to help this provider continue to provide excellent service to his medically underserved community.
