Prescription Monitoring Program
The prescription monitoring program collects prescription data for Schedule II through Schedule V drugs into a central database, the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS), which can then be used by providers and pharmacists in the active treatment of their patients.
The purpose of the CPMRS is to present a complete picture of a patientís controlled substance use, including prescriptions by other providers, so that the provider can properly manage the patientís treatment, including the referral of a patient to services offering treatment for drug abuse or addiction when appropriate.
Under Connecticut law, information about all transactions for controlled substances (Schedule II-V) dispensed in Connecticut must be reported to the CPMRS. Pharmacies Ė- both in and out of state Ė- submit data twice per month. The data is then cleaned if needed, and added to a relational database.
For more information please call (860) 713-6073 or e-mail us at DCP.email@example.com.
Disclaimer: The CPMRS receives data twice per month from dispensing pharmacies. Therefore, the data within the database may not be accurate or complete. For more information about any prescription, please contact the dispensing pharmacy or the prescriber.
