Clinical Alerts

The Oklahoma PMP has reinstated three (3) Clinical Alerts featured on the PMP system. These Clinical Alerts are being provided only as a tool to assist you in indentifying potential at risk patients. They are NOT intended to suggest a course of medical treatment or to replace the judgement of qualified medical and pharmacy professionals. These Clinical Alerts are NOT sent as an indication that the patient or practitioner has done anything wrong. Active alerts are NOT grounds for investigations against practitioners.

Clinical Alerts will be generated for the following:

  1. Patients who have been prescribed CDS by 5 or more practitioners and filled prescriptions at 5 or more pharmacies in the last 90 days.
  2. Patients receiving a combination of opioids and benzodiazaphines.
  3. Patients who exceed a daily Morphine Milligram Equivalent (MME) threshold of 100.

Upon logging into the PMP system, Practioners and Pharmacists will see the names of their patients who triggered one or more of these alerts on their dashboard.
