    The Minnesota PMP will be changing software systems on December 4, 2018. We will be moving from RxSentry to the Appriss PMP AWARxE software.

    Prescribers and Pharmacists Utilizing the System to Perform Queries

    How it affects me:

    In the new PMP AWARxE system, an email address can only be tied to one user account. User accounts that share the same e-mail address will NOT be transferred to the new system. Ifyour account is not transferred to the new system because you share the same email address as another user, you will be required to submit a new registration before you will be able to access the new system.

    Action Steps:

    1. LOGIN to the RxSentry PMP Database, Select ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT to find the option to UPDATE ACCOUNT PROFILE. Review and update your email address and contact information.
    2. Please complete all account updates by the end of business on November 16, 2018. This is the last day that account updates made in the old system will be reflected in the new system.

    If your account is transferred to the new system, you will receive an email notification when the new system goes live on December 4, 2018, with details about the new website, including login information and a guide for how to run a patient search. If you do not find this email, please check your email’s Junk or Spam folder.

    With the change to PMP AWARxE all patient reports will include advanced analytics in the form of a NarxCare report. More information, including a user guide and information about how to interpret the enhanced NarxCare reports, will be provided on December 4, 2018.

    Data Submitters/ Uploaders

    How it affects me:

    Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program

    The Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a tool to be used by prescribers and pharmacists to assist in  managing their patient’s care. It contains information provided by Minnesota licensed pharmacies and prescriber dispensers. Pharmacies and prescribers who dispense from their office submit prescription data to the PMP system for all Schedules II, III, IV and V controlled substances, butalbital and gabapentin dispensed in or into Minnesota. This protected health information is collected and stored securely. Minnesota licensed prescribers and pharmacists, and their delegated staff may be authorized  to access information from the PMP database.The program was implemented to promote public health and welfare by detecting diversion, abuse and misuse of prescriptions for controlled substances as defined in Minnesota Statutes Section 152.126.

    Interstate Data Sharing

    Minnesota Statutes Section 152.126, Subd. 6(h) allows for participation in an interstate PMP data exchange system, which allows permissible users in other states access to MN PMP data.  Conversely other states allow MN permissible users access to their data.  This is accomplished using a secure method and is currently done so by utilizing the PMP InterConnect

    The following states are currently exchanging data with the MN PMP

    Alabama* Iowa* Nevada* South Carolina*
    Alaska* Kansas* New Jersey* South Dakota*
    Arizona* Kentucky New Mexico Tennessee
    Arkansas Louisiana New York Texas*
    Colorado Maine North Carolina Virginia*
    Connecticut* Maryland* North Dakota Washington DC*
    Delaware Massachusetts Ohio* West Virginia
    Idaho* Michigan* Oklahoma Wisconsin
    Illinois* Mississippi* Pennsylvania  
    Indiana Montana Rhode Island  

    *Some account holders may not be permitted by this state to access their data. (example: Alabama allows only prescriber delegates, does not allow pharmacy delegates)
