Interstate PMP Data Sharing through NABP PMP InterConnect Is Now a Reality
Date:8/5/2011

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Aug. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) is pleased to announce that the NABP PMP InterConnect is now fully operational, providing state prescription monitoring program (PMP) users with an advanced tool for reducing prescription drug abuse and doctor shopping.

The PMPs in Ohio and Indiana have already begun deploying PMP InterConnect to select groups of users, who are now able to securely exchange prescription data between the two participating states. These programs are rolling out access within their states gradually as they fine tune their internal operations for the expected increase in usage of the systems as a result of these new capabilities, but soon all authorized users in those states will have the ability to request prescription data from the participating programs.

"The problem of prescription drug abuse and diversion has become very serious in the last few years and is an acute threat to the health and safety of the American public," says Malcolm J.
