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. A recent legislative change REQUIRES that certain providers are registered with the PDMP.

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. In the future, the ability to obtain a new or renewal CDS prescribing permit from the Maryland Office of Controlled Substances Administration (formerly Division of Drug Control) will be dependent on having registered with the PDMP. This link between the CDS permit and PDMP registration has NOT taken effect yet.

If you currently have access to PDMP, you do not have to take additional steps at this time. You are already registered! 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.

This one-page PDMP Registration Fact Sheet provides a summary of the mandate and how to register: PDMP Registration Mandate Fact Sheet

Prescriber – You are a physician (including resident / intern), physician assistant, nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, dentist, podiatrist, or veterinarian with CDS prescriptive authority in Maryland.

Pharmacist – You are a pharmacist licensed to dispense CDS in Maryland.

Delegate – You can serve as a delegate for a PDMP-registered Prescriber or Pharmacist and must meet the definition of a Delegate by falling under one of the following two conditions:

  1. You are a licensed healthcare professional without CDS prescriptive or dispensing authority in Maryland, such as a nurse, professional counselor, therapist, psychologist, social worker, certified pharmacy technician, pharmacist resident, etc.
  2. You are a employed by or under contract with the same professional practice as the registered Prescriber or Pharmacist.

If you are a CDS prescriber, you can begin the Auto-Registration Process. Complete the first step of entering your DEA and license number. If an account exists for those credentials, you will be alerted on the screen and an email will be sent to the email address on record with CRISP.

If you are a Pharmacist or Delegate, please contact CRISP (877-952-7477 or support@crisphealth.org)
