Prescription Monitoring Program

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. 

The purpose of the CPMRS is to present a complete picture of a patient’s controlled substance use, including prescriptions by other providers. As a healthcare tool, the CPMRS is used to improve quality of patient care and to reduce prescription abuse, addiction, and overdose. This allows providers the opportunity to properly manage the patient’s treatment, including referral of a patient to services offering treatment for drug abuse or addiction when appropriate.

 

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. 

Please Note: Dispensing pharmacies and medical marijuana dispensaries upload prescription data daily, and prescribing veterinarians upload at least once per week. All CPMRS data should be verified with the prescribing practitioner and/or pharmacist.

Interstate Data Sharing. Authorized roles in the CPMRS currently have access to prescription data from 39 states, 2 territories and the Military Health System. This includes all border states. Connecticut allow other states to connect via the PMP Interconnect (PMPi) or RxCheck, which are data sharing hubs that use end-to-end encryption to facilitate data sharing across state borders.
