The Board collects Schedule II-IV controlled substance prescription information from all resident and non-resident retail pharmacies that dispense to residents of Wyoming.
The purpose of WORx (Wyoming Online Prescription Database) is to create a 24/7 seamless point-of-care access system so practitioners and pharmacists help identify, deter or prevent drug abuse.
- Support access to legitimate medical use of controlled substances
- Facilitate and encourage the identification, intervention with treatment of person(s) addicted to prescription drugs
- Inform public health initiatives through outlining of use and abuse trends
Integrating WORx data within an Electronic Health Record (EHR) like Practice Fusion, provides a streamlined clinical workflow for providers. The EHR automatically initiates a patient query, validates the provider’s credentials in WORx and returns the patient’s prescription record directly within the provider’s EHR. The integration should seamlessly fit into the clinical workflow and allow for real-time or near real-time presentation of WORx data within the EHR.
