The purpose of this notice is to inform you of the Prescription Monitoring Program’s upgrade of the American Society for Automation in Pharmacy (ASAP) System, from version 4.1 to 4.2, scheduled to occur September 1, 2013. This upgrade will cause a change in the current format of the weekly data report that all licensed dispensers are required to submit to the State of Maine. Please note that the data required for collection and reporting for the State of Maine have not changed. This is only a change in format. Therefore, fields must be added, by Field Name and ID only, NOT in value, to the weekly submission. Please see the updated RxSentry® Data Submitter’s Implementation Guide for an outline of the requirements of the ASAP version 4.2 format (pg 35). This format change must occur in all weekly data reports submitted on and after September 1, 2013, however, must not occur before August 31, 2013.
Please contact the Prescription Monitoring Program Coordinator with any questions or concerns. The HID helpdesk is also available to receive questions about formatting and data submission. The RxSentry® ME PMP Helpdesk can be reached by phone 866-792-3149, option 8, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Health Information Designs' Maine Prescription Monitoring Program Web Portal.
Maine's Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is a tool created to prevent and detect prescription drug misuse and diversion. PMP maintains a database of all transactions for controlled substances dispensed in the State of Maine. This database is available online to prescribers and dispensers. A free service of the Office of Substance Abuse (SAMHS) in the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, the PMP database is quickly becoming a standard tool for clinicians to provide better care to their patients throughout the state.
Anyone with a DEA number is encouraged to register as a data requester. To register, click on the 'RxSentry Data Requester Forms" link at the left, print the form, fill out the middle part, sign it in front of a Notary Public, and mail the original to the address on the form. Once you are authorized by SAMHS to access the database, you will receive an email with your user name and password set-up instructions. To log on to the RxSentry online database, click on the RxSentry Data Requester Site link at the left.
Dispensers of controlled substances are required to register as data submitters (or have an authorized representative submit data on their behalf). To register as a data submitter, follow the steps in the RxSentry Data Submitter’s Guide, which can be downloaded under the “RxSentry Guides” link at the left.
