Update:

Clinical users register for access to the Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) data through CRISP exclusively. Registration is simple, free of charge, and takes only a few minutes.

Registration for and access to PDMP is available for a wide range of clinical providers and their delegates in Maryland. Recent legislative changes REQUIRE that certain providers are registered with the PDMP and use the PDMP when prescribing or dispensing an opioid or a benzodiazepine in certain circumstances.

PDMP Use Mandate:

Effective: July 1, 2018

Pharmacists: Pharmacists must query and assess the PDMP data when they suspect any CDS prescription is being filled for something other than treatment of an existing medical diagnosis, essentially a restatement of the corresponding responsibility under federal regulations.

Prescribers: Prescribers must query and assess PDMP data (through the CRISP portal or integration within the Electronic Health Record (EHR), where available):

Registration occurs only once and if you have ever registered for PDMP access in the past, you meet the legal mandate and are compliant with the PDMP course of instruction requirement under the law.

  • Before beginning a new course of treatment with opioids or benzodiazepines
  • When a course of treatment extends beyond 90 days. In this case, prescribers must query again at least every 90 days thereafter before prescribing or dispensing opioids or benzodiazepines
  • Must view at least the last 4 months of data ( This will always be available within a PDMP data view.)
  • A prescriber delegate may pull the PDMP data, but the prescriber remains responsible for assessing the data prior to making a prescribing decision

    PDMP Registration Mandate:

    Effective: October 1, 2016

    Pharmacists: Licensed pharmacists in Maryland must be registered with the PDMP by July 1, 2017.

    Prescribers: Practitioners authorized to prescribe CDS in Maryland must be registered with the PDMP by July 1, 2017. The ability to obtain a new or renewal CDS permit from the Maryland Office of Controlled Substances Administration (formerly Division of Drug Control) will be dependent on having registered with the PDMP.

    Registration occurs only once and if you have ever registered for PDMP access in the past, you meet the legal mandate and are compliant with the PDMP course of instruction requirement under the law.
