NarxCare is a robust analytics tool and care management platform that helps prescribers and dispensers analyze real-time controlled substance data from Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) and manage substance use disorder.
NarxCare automatically analyzes PDMP data and a patient’s health history and provides patient risk scores and an interactive visualization of usage patterns to help identify potential risk factors. Your decisions can be based on objective insight into potential drug misuse or abuse, ultimately leading to improved patient safety.
The identification of patients at risk is only the beginning of a comprehensive platform needed to impact the increasing prevalence of substance use disorder. NarxCare extends beyond information and insights to provide tools and resources to enable care teams to support patient needs.
Increasing access to treatment, improving patient education and engagement, and enabling the coordination of care across the continuum through powerful care team communications are key NarxCare features that are widely recognized as critical to success.
Pharmacists and physicians use NarxCare scores as indicators to further review details in the patient’s prescription history in conjunction with other relevant patient health information as they attend to the patients. NarxCare scores and reports are intended to aid, not replace, medical decision-making. None of the information presented should be used as sole justification for providing or refusing to provide medications.
Many factors beyond PDMP data alone can inform patient risk analysis. NarxCare evaluates the data and information you need for an informed, holistic risk assessment. As well as multi-state PDMP data, NarxCare analyzes your patient’s medical history in context of variables that could impact risk assessment and help guide patient case management—factors such as depression, obstructive sleep apnea, alcohol use, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
NarxCare is delivered to your electronic health record (EHR) or pharmacy management system (PMS) using PMP Gateway. That means authorized prescribers and dispensers can access PMP data and NarxCare analytics within their daily workflow for clinical decision support. No need for an extra log in or to re-enter patient data and it is accessible via computer, tablet, or smartphone. NarxCare facilitates continuity of care for your patients
With the ability to share patient risk analysis in real-time with other authorized parties, NarxCare fosters coordinated care management. Multiple providers involved in a patient’s care management can make better informed decisions together for earlier interventions and better patient outcomes. Patterns of substance abuse can be identified. Earlier interventions can help patients move forward with their lives and save lives.
Aided by NarxCare analytics, risk assessment can be done quickly and automatically, in real time, at the point-of-care. That enables you to intervene when time is critical.
NarxCare automatically analyzes Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) data and provides interactive visualization of usage patterns to help you identify potential risk factors and intervene with appropriate action.
NarxCare is HIPAA-compliant and assures that you’re complying with your state’s specific regulatory requirements.

The NarxCare Resources module provides Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) locators, patient information handouts, and more. All features are accessible with a single click and automatically contextualized to an individual patient’s demographics.
NarxCare also delivers care team communications, including the transmission of documents, enabling easy communication among all authenticated users. Messaging enables collaboration of care, alert and information sharing, and other functions important to clinical decision-making and patient care.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Although Ohio has had a PMP for years, the web page has been cumbersome to navigate and difficult to interpret the results. Since the incorporation of NarxCare, those issues have been resolved, since it is able to generate a single number that quickly gives me a more accurate assessment of the patient’s opiate/sedative history. This number, coupled with the ease and speed of the web page, makes getting the information I need, instantaneous. As such, my colleagues and I use this program much more frequently; allowing us to deliver better care to our patients in the ED.”
