The Rhode Island Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) has deployed the NABP PMP InterConnect®, bringing the total number of live participating state PMPs to 27. Rhode Island joins PMPs in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. These states have implemented use of PMP InterConnect, giving authorized PMP users the ability to request and share program data across state lines. NABP continues to work with other states to facilitate their participation, and it is anticipated that Oklahoma and New York will also connect before the end of 2014, bringing the total number of participating states to 29. PMP InterConnect is a highly secure communications exchange platform that facilitates the transmission of PMP data across state lines to authorized requestors, while ensuring that each state’s data-access rules are enforced. Additional information about PMP InterConnect is available in the Programs section of the NABP website.
