The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) is integrating the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) system into electronic health records and pharmacy systems across the commonwealth. The goal is to minimize any workflow disruption by providing near-instant and seamless access to critical prescription history information to both prescribers and pharmacists.
All health care entities in Pennsylvania legally authorized to prescribe, administer or dispense controlled substances are eligible to apply for integration. This includes ambulatory care units, acute care facilities, emergency care units, physician practices, pharmacies, drug treatment facilities and others.
How to Apply
To apply, please complete the online
Integration Request Form. Only authorized decision makers should fill out the form. Once the form is submitted, an overview of the next steps will be sent via email. Health care entities will be prioritized based on date submitted, organizational size and readiness to integrate.
There are multiple options for integrating with the Pennsylvania PDMP, and some include service fees. More information on options for integration will be made available in the coming weeks.
For information on the integration project, please see the
PDMP Integration Guide.
* The integration service does not include end-user analytic tools that assist with interpreting and visualizing PDMP data, and DOH neither prohibits nor endorses the use of such tools.
