The Washington State Department of Health will hire a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) onboarding coordinator (management analyst) to perform outreach, education, and onboarding assistance to facilities interested in integrating PDMP query data into their electronic health record (EHR) systems, where prescribers will have access to the data within their workflow. Providing this additional support for EHR-PDMP integration will help to remove or reduce barriers and enable more health care organizations to uptake the technology and fully adopt published opioid prescribing guidelines such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Opioid Prescribing Guidelines and the Agency Medical Directors Group Interagency Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Pain.
