PMP Mandatory Lookup Compliance in Integrated EHRs

In some integrated pharmacy management systems, a patient score is loaded for viewing when the patient’s record is accessed, rather than the full report. Viewing the patient score alone does not comply with the mandated PMP lookup requirement. Visit this page to learn more and to view an infographic of the full lookup process.



SCAM ALERT NOTICE

TSBP continues to receive reports of scams involving individuals impersonating state agency entities. The most recent scam reports to TSBP indicate instances of telephone scammers spoofing TSBP's phone number so that the calls appear to be originating from TSBP directly. Scammers may also pose as TSBP staff by using a staff member's name and/or title. Reports of both written and phone scams continue. Learn more about these scams, how to report them, and see some examples of scams here.
