New MAPS Tools for Prescribers

Monday, August 7, 2017

An updated and more user-friendly Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS), powered by the Appriss PMP AWARxE software platform, went live this past April. Utilizing the enhanced data analytic data capabilities of the new MAPS platform, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is launching new prescriber "report cards" and clinical alerts.

Report cards offer prescribers a summary of their own prescribing history including a comparison to other prescribers of the same peer group and specialty. They will be emailed quarterly to the address associated with your MAPS account if an opioid has been prescribed in the immediately preceding six months. Report cards are intended as a clinical tool for your information and use only.

Additionally, clinical alerts will appear on your Dashboard when you log in to MAPS when certain thresholds related to prescribing such as opioid/benzodiazepine combinations and daily Morphine Milligram Equivalents are met.

Other functionality and efficiencies of the new and improved MAPS AWARxE include:

  • Patient-Centered Alerts
  • Recent Request History
  • Delegate Activity
  • Prescriber-Specific Announcements
  • Seamless Integration of Interstate Data Sharing

If you have not done so already, register for MAPS at,4601,7-154-72600-406799--,00.html.
