This report presents an overview of the integration process for the RxCheck Hub, which enables state Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) to input and share their data.
Abstract
As of June 2020, the RxCheck Governance Board consisted of 24 members, with 32 PDMPs connected to the RxCheck Hub. This report first describes the types of connections that enable data to be shared between different systems through a source schema and transforming it into the data structure of a target schema. The RxCheck Hub offers flexibility in the types of data exchange types allowed for integration. A detailed description is then provided of RxCheck integration features, which are designed to ease the effort required for integration. A third section of this report profiles the partnership with state PDMPs enabled by the RxCheck Hub. This is followed by an overview of Rx Check security, which uses the national PMIX Architecture to enable the interstate sharing of PMP data. The fifth section of this report describes the features of the administrator console, which displays the status of each integration, including name, code, status, integration type, and the date and time the site was added. The report’s concluding section describes the RxCheck Hub’s reporting/auditing capabilities. The data flows will leave an audit trail that does not include protected health information, enabling reporting on demand to PDMP administrators.
