Connecting EHRs

Collaborative Pilot Project: Connecting EHRs with the IL PMP to Improve Medication Safety

The Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (IL PMP) is a state program that collects controlled substance prescription records from dispensers and then provides the data to authorized end-users for use in:

  • Clinical care
  • Law enforcement
  • Regulation of professional practice
  • Research and evaluation.

The program's mission is to enhance a prescriber's and dispenser's capacity to review a patient's prescription history for therapeutic and clinical reasons and to assist in the effective treatment of patients seeking medical care.

Open Invitation to IHA Member Hospitals: Please contact IHA if your organization is interested in working collaboratively with the Illinois Department of Human Services to automate EHR access to IL PMP to facilitate timely and accurate prescriber medication checks.
