Prescription Monitoring Program
IMPORTANT NOTICE (Upcoming CPMRS Upgrade)
A TIME SENSITIVE MESSAGE FROM THE CT PRESCRIPTION MONITORING PROGRAM
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU LOG INTO YOUR CPMRS ACCOUNT BEFORE MONDAY APRIL 08, 2019
TO VERIFY YOUR CREDENTIALS ARE UP TO DATE AND CORRECT
TO AVOID POTENTIAL DEACTIVATION.
The Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS) will be undergoing an upgrade on Monday 04/08/19.
In an effort to streamline CPMRS prescriber registrations, DCP is merging the Controlled Substance Practitioner (CSP) registration information from Connecticut’s e-licensing system data (https://www.elicense.ct.gov/) with the CPMRS registration process (https://connecticut.pmpaware.net/login).
If you receive a CPMRS de-activation notice:
- Please contact the CT Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) by email at email@example.com or by phone at (860) 713-6073. To avoid long wait times email messages are preferred.
- For security purposes, only CT Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) staff can make name and licensing changes to your CPMRS account. Please contact the PMP by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred method of contact) or calling (860) 713-6073 to request changes to your CPMRS account.
- To re-activate your CPMRS account you may be asked to:
- provide copies of your active CSP and/or and DEA certificate, or
- renew or reinstate your CSP registration, or
- renew or reinstate your DEA registration.
- To avoid CPMRS account deactivation it is important to ALWAYS keep your name, contact and licensing information updated in both systems to avoid any access issues. Only PMP staff can make name and licensing changes to your CPMRS account.
- If your CPMRS account is missing required information it may be automatically de-activated, and you will no longer be authorized to access the CPMRS as the upgrade is rolled out.
** IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOUR CPMRS ACCOUNT CREDENTIALS ARE UP TO DATE**
IMPORTANT REMINDER: PRESCRIBERS with an active Controlled Substance Practitioner (CSP) registration with the Department of Consumer Protection are required to be properly registered [in] and to use the CPMRS, per statute CGS, section 21a-254(j).
The Prescription Monitoring Program collects prescription data for Schedule II through Schedule V drugs into a centralized database, the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS), which can then be used by healthcare providers and pharmacists in the active treatment of their patients.
Under Connecticut law, information about all transactions for Schedule II-V controlled substances dispensed in Connecticut must be reported to the CPMRS. Pharmacies - both in and out of state - and dispensing practitioners must submit data daily.
For more information regarding our prescriber and pharmacist educational campaign, please visit our CHANGE the SCRxIPT webpage.
Disclaimer: The CPMRS receives data daily from dispensing pharmacies and practitioners and at least once per week from veterinary facilities. Therefore, the data within the database may not be accurate or complete. For more information about any prescription, please contact the dispensing pharmacy and/or the prescriber.
