District of Columbia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Integration Request Form

DC PDMP EHR/PMS 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.

Please direct policy related questions regarding integration to the DC PDMP office at doh.pdmp@dc.gov.

Integration Request Process

Only one integration request form is needed per healthcare organization and EHR vendor. Individual providers do not need to submit an integration request form; the integration request form is for the provider's healthcare organization as a whole. Please submit an integration request form for each EHR vendor your healthcare organization wishes to use.

  1. Please review the DC PDMP EHR Integration Welcome Packet.
  2. Complete all fields in the form below, review and click “Submit”.
  3. Following submission, you will receive a confirmation email and two emails from HelloSign containing an Appriss Health End License User Agreement (EULA) and a Gateway Licensee Questionnaire.
  4. Complete the two documents via HelloSign. Please note that both documents are required to proceed with integration.
  5. Upon receipt of the completed EULA and Gateway Licensee Questionnaire, Appriss Health submits your request to the state for approval. Upon approval, credentials will be sent per your EHR vendor’s on boarding process and a confirmation email will be sent to your healthcare organization’s primary point of contact.

You may only successfully submit an integration request form once every ten minutes. If you need to submit multiple integration request forms, please wait ten minutes in-between each submission. This precaution is to prevent duplicate submissions.
