The Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is pleased to announce expansion of out-of-state PDMP data to include West Virginia on Friday, September 25, 2015. PDMP data is accessed by registered licensed clinical users through Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), the state-designated health information exchange serving Maryland and the District of Columbia. Out-of-state PDMP data is available in a new user interface tab in the CRISP Clinical Query Portal, called ‘Interstate PDMP’, for any user already credentialed to view PDMP data.

Out-of-state data access began with Virginia in August 2015, and will continue expanding to other neighboring states and states of interest. Maryland connects to other state PDMPs through PMP InterConnect (PMPi), an interstate data sharing hub that allows each state to configure connections with other individual states at the user role level, ensuring compliance with home state statutes, regulations, and policies. Also, coming in the near future will be the ability to view and print the Maryland PDMP information within the same ‘Interstate PDMP’ tab’s view and format as the out-of-state PDMP data.

Licensed providers not yet registered with CRISP to access PDMP data may complete the process on the CRISP website: https://crisphealth.org/
