Information for Prescribers
Prescribers can help prevent opioid misuse by safely reducing opioid prescriptions and checking MAPS. They can also fight the epidemic by becoming trained to treat opioid use disorder in their practice, including in primary care. Only a fraction of individuals with opioid use disorder receive treatment; if each clinician in Michigan treated two patients, we could offer treatment to all who need it.
Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS)
MAPS is used to track controlled substances, schedules 2-5 drugs. It is a tool used by prescribers and dispensers to assess patient risk and is also used to prevent drug abuse and diversion at the prescriber, pharmacy, and patient levels. On April 4th, 2017 the State of Michigan replaced the MAPS platform with PMP AWARxE.
Acute Pain Recommendations
The Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (MI-OPEN) developed evidenced-based and procedure specific prescribing guidelines for opioids when performing the most common dental, surgical, and emergency procedures.

Chronic Pain Recommendations

In order to better inform medical providers treating chronic pain patients, the CDC developed prescribing guidelines.
