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, opioid use disorder, and overdose. This allows providers the opportunity to properly manage the patient’s treatment, including referral of a patient to services offering treatment for substance use disorders 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.

CPMRS Integration is available at NO COST* to our users!

Streamline your workflow. Save Time. Focus on Patient Care.

The CPMRS can now be accessed through approved electronic health records (EHR) and pharmacy management systems (PMS) where PDMP data and NarxCare analytics will be delivered directly into your workflow. The Connecticut Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is pleased to announce a statewide initiative to integrate the CPMRS into approved EHR/PMS using Appriss Health’s PMP Gateway service.


For more information, navigate to CPMRS Integration to take advantage of the opportunity. For a limited of time, the *initial set-up fee and *user fees will be waived due to funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
