MAPS and NarxCare Video Tutorials

Monday, May 28, 2018

Several new videos have been posted to the MAPS website on the MAPS Users page. The videos are also available to current MAPS users through the user’s online MAPS account in the Quick Links section.

The videos include an introduction to registering to MAPS, MAPS/NarxCare information, viewing and updating your online MAPS user profile, submitting a patient request, submitting a bulk patient search, and assistance in interpreting NarxCare scores.

These short videos have been created by Appriss Health in partnership with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to provide assistance to current and future MAPS users on navigating the system and understanding the data contained within the MAPS reports.

If you are a prescriber of schedule 2-5 controlled substances and have yet to register to MAPS, please be aware that a new law will take effect on June 1, 2018 which will require you to be registered to MAPS prior to prescribing a schedule 2-5 controlled substance and to also check MAPS if you prescribe in excess of a 3-day supply.
