The NARXCHECK system conforms to the software as a service (SaaS) delivery model. The application is hosted in a secure environment and accessed via a Web browser from end-users' desktop.
The NARXCHECK system is comprised of four basic components:
Single Sign On (SSO) or Login Utility
We offer two methods for users to log in to NARXCHECK:
A single sign on API that will allow the end user’s system to automatically log in through inherited authentication via the host network.
An end user can log in to the NARXCHECK system via the state’s prescription monitoring program (PMP) program. This system requires NO additional IT development or implementation and requires no changes in workflow for current users of the PMP program.
Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) Web Service
NARXCHECK uses an HL7 ADT feed from the member institution to automatically query the state PMP database for patient-specific prescription data. This data is used to formulate a NARxCHECK Score and also prepare detailed prescription reports.
The application is served up via a dashboard interface and consists of a single page that displays all active patients and their NARxCHECK Score. Reports providing detailed scoring and prescription data are a single click away. A simple-to-use toolset allows for note-driven patient care coordination.
NARXCHECK User Management
There are varying state rules regarding who can access NARXCHECK and PMP data. Our user management enables the Medical Staff Office (MSO) to authorize credentialed providers with one or two clicks through a simple but sophisticated invite process.
End User Perspective
Users click a tab or icon to launch the NARXCHECK software using their network SSO utility or they log in to the state PMP program and click the NARXCHECK link to go immediately to their dashboard.
The dashboard loads with all current patient information.
Within 8-10 seconds of all new patient registrations, the dashboard is automatically updated with the patient’s information, including the NARxCHECK Score, NARxCHECK Report, and PMP reports.
For those patients with a low NARxCHECK Score, providers can simply treat without concern for prescription drug abuse issues. For medium range scores, providers can use the readily available links to elevate their understanding of the patient’s past prescription drug use. For markedly elevated scores, providers can proceed with caution and be better prepared to care for the patient.
If the provider believes care coordination would benefit the patient, a simple toolset is available to upload and share patient notes and care directives.
