District of Columbia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Integration Request Form

District of Columbia PDMP Health Information/Pharmacy Management System Integration Overview

Effective January 1, 2019, the District of Columbia will begin steps to implement a statewide, comprehensive platform so healthcare professionals may review patients’ controlled-substance prescription history more quickly and efficiently. This platform supports the District’s Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (DC PDMP) and transfers data into electronic health records (EHR) and Pharmacy Management systems. Statewide integration of the DC PDMP platform is a key component of the District’s ongoing effort to address the opioid crisis.

Integration Process:

  1. Follow the instructions and complete ALL of the following (only authorized decision makers at the healthcare entity should fill out these forms):
    1. Integration Request Form (located on the right of this page)
    2. End User License Agreement (emailed to you within 24 hours)
    3. PMP Gateway Licensee Questionnaire (emailed within 24 hours)
  2. DC Health will review the Integration Request Form to determine if the Health care facility is eligible for integration and forward the form to Appriss Health.
