Appriss Health & State Governments

Helping state government agencies improve public health outcomes

Using Data to Offer Greater Access to Care

Public health is a major responsibility shared by state government administrators, private and public state health systems, and their individual medical professionals, particularly clinicians and pharmacists. Appriss Health recognizes this challenge and is committed to leveraging the power of data to help states make measurable improvements to public health.

We are integrated with 500+ healthcare technology platforms, including EHRs and pharmacy management systems, giving our state customers and their providers access to hundreds of millions of critical data points for millions of patients. We emphasize compliance, connectivity, and ease of use so that providers have more knowledge and patients have better experiences at the point of care.

A More Robust Solution

Today, 43 of the nation’s 54 prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) rely on Appriss Health’s software solutions and an increasing number of states rely on our OpenBeds behavioral health solutions. These enable users to make more informed decisions around prescriptions—helping to reduce opioid-related substance use disorders—and to provide better access to care—helping to ensure individuals receive the behavioral health treatment they need.

The National Leader in PDMP Solutions

Now, leveraging PDMP solutions, every federally-controlled substance prescription, including narcotics, are being entered and tracked, making earlier identification and intervention possible. Every day, nearly 130 people overdose on opioids, including prescription pain relievers. Efficient and effective technology is a necessity as we continue to tackle the opioid epidemic, as well as other substance use challenges.

Our platform connects most U.S. PDMPs, close to 1 million prescribers and half a million care team members, more than 30,000 pharmacies, and thousands of hospitals, managing more than 400 million monthly transactions. It enables seamless in-workflow visibility to patients’ prescription drug history and a comprehensive solution that improves access to needed care for people with behavioral health conditions and social determinants of health challenges.

Real-time clinical decision support and data-driven insights are integrated into the workflows of more than 130 electronic health record solutions and every national pharmacy chain. Combined, our data analytics solutions and bi-directional communication capabilities support whole-person care and rehabilitation for physical and behavioral health conditions and substance use disorders, improving health outcomes and reducing overall healthcare spending.
