    Learn about how a unique partnership between DrFirst, the Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NeHII) and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services resulted in a new data-sharing model that collects prescribing data on ALL prescriptions. The collaboration has made prescribing data available to all Nebraska providers through NeHII and the Nebraska Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) to enhance patient safety and help combat the abuse of opioids. Discover how providers and pharmacists can now get a more complete picture of a patient’s medication history, enabling them to address opioid or other drug abuse in the overall context of the patient’s care plan.
