The State of Michigan successfully updates the Michigan Automated Prescription System, which enables prescribers to see which controlled substances have been prescribed to patients. New PDMP features include data-sharing between states, a decrease in look-up time from 10 minutes to a few seconds, and real-time data uploads. The upgrade is the result of a deal the state made with Appriss Health last fall that called for an overhaul of the MAP system. Implementation of the new technology took six months.
