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 organizations facilitating PDMP integration in Pennsylvania. Healthcare entities and their EHR/pharmacy management system vendors may contact these organizations directly to begin discussions on integration. The following is a list of organizations facilitating integrations with the Pennsylvania PDMP:

In addition, the PDMP Office recently issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the procurement of a system that includes subscription-free integration via SMART on FHIR, as well as other great features for making PDMP reports more accessible and user-friendly. This system is expected to be available early 2021.
