Take a look and see if your question is answered here. However if you find, after reading these through, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re committed to answering all of your questions.

How does PASTRx work?
PASTRx acts as the technical tool you will use to access your state PDMP database, exactly the way you use, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer to do so today.

Is PASTRx safe and secure?
You will use your own credentials, which P.A.S.T. will never see, or use other than at your command, when you request a report for one of your patients. The data will be encrypted at all times, in motion and at rest, just as if you were getting it from the state PDMP site directly. The SSL protection of the data is identical to that used when getting the reports directly from the state PDMP website.

Does PASTRx save or store my patients data?
P.A.S.T. will never request a patient’s data – only you can do that. P.A.S.T. will not read, store or do anything with patient data, other than process it for, and deliver it to you.

How does PASTRx use the PDMP data?
P.A.S.T will augment and cross-reference the data in the PDMP report, and run our analytics against the data. We will then format a report for you, focused on findings. This will help you quickly and accurately notice and evaluate any potential problems, delivering much more value than the PDMP’s simple dump of the data.

Follow Prescription Advisory

Doctors (and other clinicians) need to know what prescriptions have been given to their patients by other practitioners. This information should be included in the patients’ electronic health care records accessible through a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) that provides immediate information.
