Physicians are a leading source of prescription opioids for highest-risk users
CDC researchers reported this month that people at highest risk of overdose from prescription opioids are as likely to get them from a doctor’s prescription as from a friend or relative.
There’s a new tool to help you identify patients who may be receiving controlled substance prescriptions from multiple sources. The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) provides access to information on controlled substances that are dispensed to patients in Maryland.
Licensed healthcare providers who are authorized to prescribe control substances may register for a free user account and are also able to identify a delegate (RN, MSW, etc) to access the database on their behalf.
Providers can now register with Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP), the statewide health information exchange (HIE), to access their patients' prescription information through the HIE website.
To register with CRISP for PDMP data access, visit crisphealth.org. For more information on the PDMP, visit the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) website at adaa.dhmh.maryland.gov/PDMP.
