Uploader/Dispensers Implementation Guide (pdf)

Dispensers (pharmacies) licensed by the MN Board of Pharmacy must report daily, all Minnesota schedule II-V controlled substances, butalbital and gabapentin prescriptions.  If no controlled substance, butalbital or gabapentin prescriptions are dispensed on any given day, the dispenser is required to submit a "zero report" at the end of the day or on the following day. If the pharmacy does not have a way to automate zero reporting and is closed for business, it is permissible to submit one zero report per day closed, upon reopening for business. Submitting zero reports for a timeframe greater than one day is not permitted. 

Pharmacies are required by law to report valid prescription information to the PMP. Prescription records containing errors must be resolved in the PMP database within seven days of the initial erroneous submission. Prescription error(s) in the pharmacy's upload are located on the pharmacy's Edit Report. Edit Reports are sent to the pharmacy or their uploader (i.e. software vendor, corporate uploader, etc.) as specified in the pharmacy's uploader account. Failure to correct prescription errors within seven days may result in a referral to the Board of Pharmacy's Complaint Review Panel for further action.
