NABP is pleased to announce that the South Dakota prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) is the 12th prescription monitoring program (PMP) to deploy NABP PMP InterConnect®. South Dakota joins PMPs in Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, and Virginia, which have implemented use of the NABP InterConnect, giving authorized PMP users the ability to request and share program data across state lines. In addition, the Arkansas PDMP has executed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to participate in NABP InterConnect. Eight additional states have signed MOUs. NABP continues to work with other states to facilitate their participation in the NABP InterConnect, and it is anticipated that more than 25 states will be sharing data or will have executed an MOU to participate in NABP InterConnect in 2013. The NABP 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 NABP InterConnect is available in the Programs section of the NABP Web site.
