​Interstate Data Sharing​

The Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) is allowed by Maryland statute (Health-General Article §21–2A–06(b)(3)) to share PDMP dispense data with authorized users of another state’s prescription drug monitoring program as long as the data will be used in connection with the provision of medical care. Maryland PDMP data are shared only with credentialed clinical providers in other states, not investigative authorities such as other states’ licensing boards or law enforcement.

Currently, Maryland is sharing PDMP data with the states and systems listed below (with the year that sharing began).  The Maryland PDMP is actively working on sharing with additional states. 

Interstate Integrations

In response to recent statutory changes, the Maryland PDMP may now share prescription monitoring data with facilities in other states using electronic health record (EHR) and pharmacy system management integrations, such as PMP Gateway.  Out-of-state facilities requesting integration must meet 2 conditions based on Maryland statute: 

  1. The clinical provider MUST be a credentialed user of their state’s PDMP and
  2. The request must come from a clinical provider and not from the facility in which they may work. 

As of October 2020, Maryland shares PDMP data with 223 facilities through PMP Gateway integrations, including 12 pharmacy systems, in DC, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
