NABP Developing System to Link Prescription Monitoring Programs Across States to Facilitate Data Exchange
Date:11/16/2010

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to an expressed need by prescription monitoring program (PMP) administrators for a way to facilitate the sharing and exchanging of data among PMP systems, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) will be developing an interconnected communications hub for state PMPs. The "interconnect hub," which will be operational in nine months, will be made accessible to the states at little or no cost in order to help further the protection of the public health – a mission shared by the state boards of pharmacy and NABP.

Once the system is in place, authorized clients will log in to their PMP as usual and make requests for information from other participating PMPs through the interconnect hub 24 hours a day. The interconnect hub will facilitate the completion of the data request so that clients can quickly obtain the data they need to identify possible prescription drug abuse and diversion. The interconnect hub will also enforce each program's access rules to ensure only authorized and appropriate access to information.  

Used only to facilitate the communications process, the interconnect hub will retain no prescription data and all PMP data will remain resident with the PMP. In addition, the interconnect hub will be housed in highly secure facilities, to maintain the confidentiality of this sensitive information.  

The development of this interconnect hub is supported by a 2009 NABP task force, which studied PMPs and recommended that NABP work with the state boards of pharmacy, PMPs, pharmacists, prescribers, and other interested stakeholders to ensure that PMPs serve two critical purposes:

  1. assist pharmacists and prescribers in assessing patient information and providing appropriate patient care; and
  2. assist law enforcement efforts in identifying and acting in instances of drug abuse and div
