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.
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
