Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program

    Supporting Patient Care Since 2010

     

    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

    The Minnesota Board of Pharmacy (BOP), through grants received from federal government and other state agencies, is providing a state-wide license to enable one-click access to Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) reports into approved Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Pharmacy Management Systems (PMS) using Appriss Health's PMP Gateway Solution from September 1, 2020 through September 30, 2022.

    Through integration, your EHR or PDS, when prompted, will initiate a patient PMP search, using credentials and patient demographic information within your EHR or PDS, immediately returning a view of the patient’s controlled substance prescription history report, without leaving the clinical workflow.  The integration will continue to provide access to the NarxCare analytics tool and care management platform, which helps prescribers and dispensers analyze PMP data and manage substance use disorder.
