- Prescription Monitoring Program
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health announces an upcoming enhancement to the Massachusetts Prescription Awareness Tool (MassPAT).
On December 9th, 2019, all approved MassPAT users will have access to an advanced patient support tool called Visano. In addition to the existing MassPAT functionality, Visano will include the current patient PMP report, but will also offer a representation of the data in an interactive format to help prescribers, pharmacists and care teams access and more quickly and easily comprehend the data to aid in clinical decisions and provide improved patient safety and outcomes. Visano also provides tools and resources that support patients' needs and connects them to treatment, when appropriate.
With this enhancement, healthcare providers will have access to all of the features and functions of Visano with a consistent look and feel for users who access the solution through the MassPAT web portal. It also enables delivery of Visano within Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Pharmacy Management Systems for those prescribers and dispensers in MA who choose to access Visano through integration within their healthcare IT system.
